Let’s Bake! (Emoticon Cookies Edition)

It’s been a while since I’ve done a baking post. I took another look through my Nerdy Nummies cookbook and landed on these emoticon cookies. They looked easy, fun and colourful, so I set to work!

First, I made lemon sugar cookies and waited for them cool down.

Once they were cool, I made a batch of royal icing. I split them into six bowls to make the colours. For the recipe, you need, pink, orange, yellow, green, blue and black.

The black can be set aside for decorating later. With the other colours, evenly spread them out among the cookies. This took the longest time for me, I don’t have one of those spatulas to smooth icing, so it took a while. Still, they look really bright and festive once they’re all iced!

Once the icing is hardened, then it’s time to add the decorations. I copied the ones Ro did in the book, but you can do any emojis really. This part was definitely the most fun!

These are definitely delicious, and they look so cute! I’m really happy with how they came together in the end.
