Hello Kitty Cookies

9 Feb

Today I went to a beautiful little girl’s 7th birthday party. The theme was Hello kitty and her mother, my good friend Mary asked me to make some Hello Kitty and heart cookies for the loot bags. This was very exciting since I never made Hello Kitty cookies before. Here was the process that I followed..

I baked the cookies 24 hours in advance. I bought the Hello Kitty cookie cutter set made by Wilton. It comes with the Hello Kitty head and a full body. Mary wanted just the face. Then I used 20-second royal icing tinted with Americolor soft pink. Since the cutter shows the outlining of the bow I decided to start there. I thought about doing a bow on parchment and then adhering it with royal icing on an already iced cookie but I wanted the bow to be flat with all the other icing. I let that dry for about 45min to an hour.

Here is a close up of the middle of the bow. You can see on either side of the cookie the outlining of the bow I tried to put my circle in the middle.

Now on either side of the circle I filled in the bow. This part was pretty easy since I just followed half the outline of the cookie.

Then I forgot to keep taking pictures and remembered when I was all done. After 3 hours of letting the bow dry I filled in the remainder of the cookie with white royal icing. I used flood consistency since there was a large area to fill in. I let the cookies dry for 2 hours. At this point the cookies are far from bring dry but since it was only the eyes and nose that I was adding I didn’t need to worry about the white icing cracking with the weight.

I just added the eyes and nose by hand. If you need some help then you can always print a copy of Hello Kitty that is the approximate size of the cookie and measure where the eyes and nose go then with an edible marker or a needle to mark the cookie before adding the black for the eyes and yellow for the nose.

I don’t know if you can see in the pic but I added hot pink shimmer dust to the bow just to make the color pop. With the hearts I just filled them with the same pink that I used for the bow. I let all the cookies dry overnight so that there was no chance of the icing cracking when packaging them.

Enjoy.
