My baby girls 1st birthday is at the end of march (I can't believe it!). I am planning a ladybug theme because the 1st outfit her daddy picked for her was a cute little onesie with a ladybug hat and pants with lady bug feet & we called her our little ladybug. So I found a picture of some CUTE sugar cookies that would fit the theme. I'm thinking I could make them. I have an outstanding sugar cookie recipe, but don't know what kind if icing to do for them. Does anybody know what kind or have a recipe they'd be willing to share. They are super cute & I'd like to at least try before we get too close to the party!!!
We had a ladybug theme for my dd's 1st birthday too, it was so cute. Can you post a pic of the cookies you want to make? You might want to also ask this question in some of the cooking groups. We have some food bloggers in the one below.
They are very cute. Maybe the tubes of icing you can buy at a place like walmart might work, might need a small spatula to smooth it out. But I'm sure other ladies will have a better idea, I haven't decorated like that.
I would stick with royal icing so it'll harden enough so you can stack the cookies without disturbing the icing itself. You can make it by using 3 tbsp. meringue powder (you can usually by this at your arts and crafts store or even the party store), 4 cups confectioner's sugar, 6 tbsp. warm water. Beat it all together for about 10 minutes until stiff peaks form. You can thin it out by adding more water and color it as needed.
