Batman Cookies (and some other ones, too)

May 30, 2012

So, birthday cookies. I’ve gotten real caught up in making and decorating sugar cookies lately. I’m kind of obsessed and it’s probably not a good thing, especially when I’m trying to cut out sugar. Ha!

The kids really wanted a Batman themed birthday party. We’ve done cupcakes, cake, and all that jazz, so I thought something different would be fun. In comes the Batman Cookies.

I figured I would decorate these like I did the last sugar cookies I made, which was to pipe an outline, flood the cookie with royal icing and then once that was dry (the next day), I would pipe an outline again and put sprinkles on them. Well, for the Batman cookies I was going to pipe the Batman logo, flood black icing in the middle of the logo, let that dry until the next day, and then pipe a yellow outline around the cookies, and then flood the rest of the cookie yellow. That seemed like a lot of work (which I was totally willing to do!), and then I stumbled across something that changed the way I ended up doing these. Over at Vanilla Bean Baker, she piped the Batman logo on wax paper, flooded it was black icing, and then let it sit overnight. Then the next day, I outlined my cookies in yellow, flood it with yellow icing, and after waiting a few minutes I put the black Batman logo on top of the icing.

You can see in the third picture what happens if you put your logos on right away. The icing went over the outline. So, I took one for the team and ate half of it. Pretty tasty. I found that if I waited at least 5 minutes before I put the logo on, I didn’t have any cookies problems.

I also decided to do some number cookies. The Princess will be turning 5 next month, and the Twins turned 3, so that’s what we did.

These were a piece of cake. I outlined the numbers first using piping icing, then I flooded them with flooding icing, and decorated them right away with leftover yellow piping icing from the Batman cookies. See the hearts in the purple “5” cookies? Those are my favorite. All I did was put a bunch of yellow dots in the middle of the cookie and then I took a toothpick and dragged it through the yellow dots. So easy and so cute!

If you’re thinking about making cookies like these you should head over to The Sweet Adventures of Sugar Belle. She’s where I got my Sugar Cookie recipe, my Royal Icing recipe, and the many, many tips on how to do cookies like these. I pretty much followed all her recipes, and tips to a T and these are what I got:

  8. Those look awesome!!! Super impressed!


    • Thank you!! They were a lot of fun to make.


  9. I think all of your cookies turned out fantastic. I’m very happy that the royal icing transfer method worked for your Batman cookies and I very much appreciate you having mentioned me and linking back to my site. Have a wonderful weekend.


    • Thanks for visiting and commenting on my post! ๐Ÿ™‚

      I loved the idea of the logo transfer. Just brilliant!


  10. Neat that you learned the new trick with the batman icing! Was it a lot of icing having the 2 layers though?


    • Yeah, it did seem like a lot of icing. Although I thought they tasted fine, maybe just a little sweet.


      • Perfect for kids though! I like the idea a lot otherwise, it seems like an interesting way to give a cookie depth.


      • Yeah, it had almost a 3D effect. I saw on another blog that she put a tiny bit of royal icing on the back of it before applying it to the cookie. That way if you wanted to take the logo off before eating the cookie, you could. So that’s an idea.
