These were a birthday gift for my friend who looooves unicorns. I made the design by drawing it on the cookie with an edible ink marker and then going over it with black icing using a very tiny piping tip (Wilton #1). The Wilton School of Cake Decorating in the Chicago suburbs teaches students to draw on dummy cakes with a pencil before piping the final design, which is great if you aren't actually going to eat the cake. If you have a talent for drawing or even if you want to trace a design, edible ink markers will be your best friend when it comes to decorating cookies or fondant covered cakes.

Black and white monogrammed cookies are now available in my Etsy shop.


  1. I LOVE these! So CUTE!! I used to love unicorns as a kid too!! I have never tried the edible ink but I will have to try it soon! Looks like A LOT of fun!

  2. Wow! You just answered one of my questions about cookie decorating! Thanks for the tip!

  3. Your cookies are too pretty for eating. I stumbled upon your blog by chance - actually stumbled upon your mother's blog, which linked here. Anyway, that's amazing. I also saw the cookies with gold designs on them. Is that edible? Of course they are, but they look so forbidden.
