How to Make Easy Turkey Legs with Royal Icing

If you’re looking for an easy turkey leg to make this Thanksgiving you should make these fun little legs with royal icing. But who says you should only make them during Thanksgiving? We need to make these cute little guys year-round.  I definitely see a turkey leg, but if you look close I think you’ll see it can be a chicken leg also.

Have you seen Bridget at Bake 350’s Desserts for Dudes? You should download the three different sized templates and then go visit Bridget and follow her tutorial on how to make the chicken legs. Add the transfers to a cookie and make Bridget’s chicken legs because they’ll make a great set of cookies for us to enjoy because they’re adorable!turkey leg, royal icing transfers, The Bearfoot Baker, sugar cookies, royal icing

Adding a few turkey and chicken leg royal icing transfers to plaque, circle, or square cookies will be a simple way to add a few fun cookies to your set. I know you all are going to have fun with these and I can’t wait to see how you all use them on your cookies.

Enough chit chat! Here are your templates so you can get started making your legs.

Here are a few royal icing tips for you:
  1. Since 2020 has been anything but normal due to the pandemic, maybe we should start a few new holiday traditions. We could print a few royal icing transfer patterns, make some royal icing, and have a decorating party that doesn’t require baking. Cover the patterns with cello bags or wax paper and let the piping begin. I think I’ll cut the patterns in half and let the grandkids make any royal icing transfer they want. This is a new tradition I know I will enjoy!
  2. If you make this a new tradition, be sure to let them dry completely before you remove them from the cello bag or wax paper. Store them in an airtight container and they’ll be ready to decorate when you are.

I’ll be back soon and show you all how I’m going to use these to decorate a few sugar cookies. I’ll be sharing a lot of royal icing transfers with you this holiday season and I hope you make them for your cookies. Who knows, Santa may join the royal icing transfer party!

Be sure to share your photos with me because we all want to see your amazing creations. I can’t wait!
