Ballerina Silhouette Cookies
Bake the cookies(collection of recipes for cut out cookies).
Make Royal Icing : Stiff, Flood(video tutorial) and Outline consistency. I used 2 shades of wilton teal color. Lighter is used as a base and darker shade(flood consistency only) is used to pipe filigree rolls(video tutorial by Sweet Ambs)
Fill the cookies with the icing, immediately followed by piping filigree rolls. This is a wet on wet technique so don't let the flooded cookie crust or you won't be able to do this. You can make filigree as simple as you like or as complicated. I made the filigree pattern very simple.As you see I only piped filigree on half of the cookie. I wanted to created a different look by leaving one half blank. Let the cookies dry completely before applying the stencil.

How to use a stencil with royal icing
You will need to wash the stencil several times while stenciling your cookies, this is normal, it helps to get the clean stenciled design onto the cookie.
Using a clean artist's brush dipped in Disco Dust lightly dust tops of each stenciled ballerina.Let dry.
