Hey, guys, it’s an York’s from the flower box, and I’m excited to be bringing to you a wedding cookie tutorial today, so in this tutorial? I plan to teach you how to make a beautiful wedding gown That has lots of details. Four folds of fabrics. Then we’re gonna look at how to make little ribbon rosettes and also a medium sized rose to accent. All of our cookies after that. I’m gonna show you a quick and easy stenciled cookie. That would be great for a wedding or a bridal shower. Then we’ll take a look at how to make a diamond ring and this diamond ring. I’m going to show you how to paint on metallic gold accents to give it some beautiful shimmer to it then. Finally, I’m going to create a beautiful bride and grow using the double heart cookie cutter. So let’s cookie it up. Let’s start with the wedding dress. I’m going to outline the edge of the cookie with piping icing and I’m using a tip number two, and then I’m gonna flood in the dress with a tipless bag and I’m using a 10 second royal icing. And if you’re looking for a recipe on how to make the royal icing, you can find that on flower box bakery com, so I’ll let that icing dry for about an hour to in front of a fan, and then I’m ready to add the details. I use our light, pink accent, color and the burgundy Rose rosette. And now I’m ready to pipe the details. I love the look of the white on white on the wedding dress and to keep the folds of the dress looking very delicate, and I had lots of little detail. I’ve actually sized down my tip to a tip number one. I started off piping along the base of the dress to create those beautiful folds, and then I bring some lines down just to create the folds of the fabric that this is a nice, full wedding gown. [MUSIC] You can certainly do this dress in a variety of ways, but when you add packaging and a ribbon. This is an awesome favor for a wedding or even a bridal shower, and it’s one of those cookies that you could make a lot of especially if it’s a large event. Let’s make some of those little rosettes. I just put one on the dress that I just decorated. You’re going to need parchment paper A tip, number 101 and a flower nail this flower nail and this tip come in our new wedding kit that we’ve just released and to get started. Just get comfortable with that flower nail. I just like to roll it between my fingers just to get the feel of that motion because there’s a little bit of coordination between spinning the flower nail. And how hard you’re gonna squeeze the icing. Add a little dot of icing to the top of the flower nail and thatll. Keep your parchment paper in place. Now we’re ready to make our first rose, so I’m using a medium hand squeeze, not too soft, not too hard. I have the narrow side of the tip, pointing straight up and the wide side down. This will keep that thin area at the top of the rose. And then as I’m spinning, I’ll just use a gentle swipe to finish off that Rose, lets. Look at that again again. A little dot of icing on the top of the flower nail thatll. Keep my parchment paper in place and then. I’m ready to turn and squeeze and I find. I need to start turning that flower nail pretty quickly so that I can get that rose spinning. And if you have any icing, that’s out of place. You can always tap it back into place with your scribe sometimes. I get little wings on my rosettes. Let’s take a look at a medium sized rose. I’m going to start off with that small rosette in the center and then with the narrow side of my tip pointing outward, I’m gonna pipe three petals, so I just bump bump and swipe and then I’m gonna bump bump and swipe and then I’ll bump bump and swipe that third petal into place, and we’re gonna use some of these bigger roses on our bouquet cookie coming up in just a little bit, and I love to make them in all different colors because they save for a long time. Now I’m gonna use this double heart cookie twice. This first use is going to be a stenciled cookie. This is our accent cookie in this group. So I have a just married stencil and I’m going to generously apply the icing to the surface of this stencil. And before I lift the stencil, I just don’t remove that excess by removing the excess. I’ll be able to reuse that stencil over and over to make more of these cookies and I’m just gently peeling back that stencil. I don’t want to whip it up. I just want to gently. Peel that back to reveal the pattern now. I’m gonna add a few pipes. Details, just a little green vine with some roses, so I’m just putting a dot of icing on the bottom of the roses and popping those into place. Then I’ll add a few little leaves. I’m just using tip number two to add. These leaves a teardrop of icing, and then I’ll add the vine down below as well [Music] and now I’m going to add a rose on the other side with some leaves and to clean up the edge of this cookie and really make the design of that double heart more evident. I’m gonna add a piped outline to it in White [Music] but it looks a little off-balance to me, so I’m gonna actually add one more rose and a few more leaves just to balance out both sides of that design. I think that looks much better with the extra rose. Okay, let’s do one of my favorite cookies from the set. This is the diamond ring and you can find the template for this cookie on the blog post to see that link below and you can download the free template, and I used the template to cut out that circle. So I could trace it with my yellow food marker now. I’m going to outline the circle of the cookie first, and because I’m creating these really thin icing areas. I’m using a thicker 20 second icing. This icing has a little bit of flow to it, but it’s really gonna hold. Its shape so that I can do these delicate areas and hopefully after putting it in front of the fan, we won’t see any craters of icing in those small areas now. I’m going to add the diamond and I’m using a tip number 1 so we want to keep this area nice and thin and small, and I’m using the guide of the shape of the cookie to create that diamond. You can add a little sparkle to your diamond using jewel dust at this point, but I’m keeping this one free of jewel dust, and then I’ll just tap that icing into place and make sure that diamond has a really good shape to it now. I’m ready to add the gold accent. I’m using the antique gold from crystal colors. This is an fda-approved metallic dust, and I have my 5-0 silver white brush. This is an ultra thin brush so that we can keep that gold in those small areas. I’m going to add a little bit of the antique gold dust to my little mixing bowl, and then I have a little bit of alcohol that I’m mixed in with the antique gold. Now not everybody has alcohol in their house. You could also use a lemon extract or water, but I find that the alcohol works best. It leaves behind the best shine because it evaporates. You won’t taste it. It just evaporates once that liquid dries on the cookie. So I mix it up and I tap my brush off on the side just to remove any excess, and then I’m ready to start painting that little area now. This cookie is definitely more of a feature cookie. Adding these gold accents is time consuming, and so that’s why. I like to mix some of these more time-consuming cookies in with the stenciled cookies. It really helps me to balance out my decorating time, so that not everything is super labor-intensive. But I love how the gold looks on the diamond ring. So it’s worth the extra effort for me now. I’m almost done and I’ll go back in if I see any missing areas. I’ll touch it up sometimes. I’ll find that I’ll need to add a second coating. If things aren’t as bright as I want them to be, so I’ll just touch up any areas while the gold is still wet. Now let’s add our finished details. I’m gonna start with the diamond and I just section off that top area first and then pipe an outline to finish off the bottom area. I’m gonna add a guide dot, and that’ll help me pipe the facets of the diamond at the top, and then I’ll add three more lines at the bottom just to give this a pretty gem. Look, and I’m gonna add a couple of our roses to our diamonds, so I’ll just lay them out on the side there next to the diamond while I pipe some of these little green vines. I kind of want this peeking out underneath those flowers. So I’m gonna pipe them first, and then I’ll put my roses in place. Those little vines are great. They’re just a little teardrop of icing that it’s a good squeeze and I pull it out, easing off the hand pressure [Music] and I’m just getting those little roses in place. I’m gonna add a couple of leaves to fill in the gaps and fill out that design and that beautiful cookie favor is ready to go lets. Take a closer look at the cookie decorating kit that we have to go with this tutorial. In addition to the cutters and the just married stencil. There are some cool tools that are in this kit first of all to make painting those metal accents a little bit easier. We have an ultra thin 5-0 silver white brush. This is my favorite brush to use when I’m painting those metallic accents, and then we have a small jar 1/2 ounce of the antique gold crystal color. And I love this product because it is. FDA approved. Then for making your icing flowers. We have a Wilton flower nail and the tip number 101 so that’s what we’re going to be, including in the kit. Plus, you’ll find a sample pack of our tipless bags, And, of course we can’t send out a kit without a boo Boo stick, check out the link below for more details on this cookie decorating kit, and you’ll also be able to download our free templates. Now let’s make the bouquet. I have my apple tree cookie, and I’m going to use this apple tree to make our wedding bouquet. It just happens to be the perfect shape for a bouquet and a gathering of stems. And I always like to plan out my flowers ahead of time so before I glue them on. I’ll space them out and make sure I like how the flowers are organized and then I’ll go and add the little dot of icing to put them into place, so we’re going to use a combination of flowers. I used our rosettes and to add a different texture. I’m also going to do some little whimsical flowers and I’m piping them in a couple of different icing colors. Those are really just a squiggly circle. There’s no secret to that. They’re pretty quick and easy and then. I’ll add some detail to them using a tip number one, and I’ll just wiggle and squiggle my way around to get those flowers have a little bit of extra detail now before we fill in the top. I’m going to add our stem. I have a tip number one point, Five on my avocado colored icing, and I’m just gonna pull those lines straight down from the gathering of the bouquet, and I don’t always match up the number of stems to the number of flowers, but I like that area to be nice and full of green lines. I just think it looks like a lot of fun. [MUSIC] Now I’m ready to add some baby’s breath and I’m using that same gold icing that we used on our diamond ring and this will just tie all of our icing together from cookie – cookie. I’m just piping those in small clusters of three dots, and now I’m ready to fill out the rest of that design by adding leaves. And I have my number two tip back on the avocado icing and you can see. I’m just giving a good squeeze and pulling out those leaves, so it’s good hand pressure and then a release just to get those thick and thin areas of the leaf. I try to add one leaf to each, and I really just want to fill in that negative space and give that bouquet a really nice full look to it if I think I need to add another flower or two. I can always fill in the space with some extra flowers. I’ll just lean back and look at the overall design and decide whether I need to add in another little flower, and then before I’m done, I’m just gonna pipe a cute little infinity bow. I just pipe a line across two loops at the top, and then I’ll squiggle down the tails of the ribbons. Here’s that double heart cookie again. And this time this is going to be one of our feature cookies. We’re gonna create a bride and a groom and you can see that. I’ve traced some guides on the cookie with yellow food marker, and you can find the template for this cookie design on the blog post. It’s just a one click, and you can download all the templates from this video, so whenever I have a cookie that has multiple icing areas and I’m trying to decide which area should I flood first? I like to think background to foreground, so because that bride is in the foreground, I’ll flood the black tuxedo first just to keep that behind the white of the bride heart. I’m using a 20 second icing for the bust area of the bride and again that icing is sinned enough that it has some flow to it, but it’s thick enough that it’ll hold its shape so that I can pipe and flood all with one icing bag. Then once those areas have a chance to dry. I’m gonna go back in and I’m ready to flood the white. You definitely want to allow at least an hour of drying time in front of the fan so that you don’t see any color bleeding between the black and the white icing. [MUSIC] Now it’s time for details. I’m gonna start with the tuxedo first. I’ll outline the V just to clean up that area between the shirt and the jacket, and then I’m going to just pipe the lapels, so the lapels are just a line. I’ll cut in a little triangle, and then I’ll bring another straight line down to the bottom. You can also flood that area If you wanted to, but I think the pipe line gets the point across, and it doesn’t add too much extra time to an already time-consuming cookie. Then I’ll finish off by piping. The details of this shirt and that tuxedo area is pretty much ready to go. I’m gonna add a beautiful decorative bee border to the top of the bride dress. And then I want to create the illusion that this dress is made of beautiful lace. And so I’m gonna do a simple squiggle lace. I have a tip number 1 on my icing bag, and I’m using very light hand pressure to keep these nice and thin wiggles delicate. And then I just squiggle in and around the dress, just filling in that whole icing area with those beautiful little squiggles and adding a really nice texture to that cookie, and before we finish up this side. I’m just gonna add pretty dots of icing and that’ll be for the bride’s necklace. Now let’s finish off our groom. I’m gonna add some buttons to his shirt and I switched over my black icing to a tip number 65 s and it’s typically a leaf tip, but in this case, we’re gonna use it as a bow that way. We don’t have to pipe and flood such a small area and I’ll just use strong hand pressure as I squeeze the icing to create each side of the bow meeting that icing in the middle and adding a dot. Now we’re almost done with this cookie. I’m just gonna add a rose to his lapel and a quick leaf. I really hope you guys enjoyed watching today’s tutorial. This one was a lot of fun to plant again.
