HOW TO DECORATE STRAWBERRY ICE CREAM SUNDAE COOKIES

In the picture above you can see 3 Ice Cream Sundae design varieties. All are basically the same with very subtle differences. Bellow you’ll find how to make ice cream sundae cookie with chocolate fudge and strawberries decorations.

FRESH STRAWBERRY ROYAL ICING

I love to flavor royal icing with fresh lemon juice, fruit purees, coffee, cocoa powder, spices and drink powders.

To make decorations for today’s project and to ice part of the cookies I used fresh Strawberry Royal Icing. To make strawberry royal icing I used my Small Batch Royal Icing Recipe. In place of water I used fresh strawberry puree. You can find step by step recipe – Strawberry Royal Icing.

When you first make strawberry royal icing it will be light pink. To make it a bit deeper pink and red I colored it with super red gel food color by Americolor.

HOMEMADE SPRINKLES

Spread a thin layer or strawberry royal icing on a wax paper. Let it dry. Then peel off the wax paper. Break up dry icing into small pieces. Store royal icing sprinkles in an airtight container, until ready to use.

Draw a small strawberry shape (hear shape) on a piece of paper. Place a piece of parchment or wax paper over it. Then with 20 second consistency red royal icing pipe the strawberry shape. Let it crust for an hour.

Next, with yellow royal icing pipe the seeds and let dry overnight. Once dry, remove strawberry from the parchment.

Fill a piping bag with medium stiff consistency green royal icing. Cut a small V shape on the piping bag. Pipe 3 small leaves on a parchment paper. Press strawberry onto the leaves. Let dry before removing from the parchment. Store strawberry royal icing transfers in an airtight container, until ready to use.

ROYAL ICING CHOCOLATE FUDGE

To make chocolate royal icing I use 1tbsp dark cocoa powder per 1 cup of stiff royal icing. Then I color icing with chocolate brown gel food coloring. To make dark brown icing I let the icing rest overnight. Resting intensifies color and it also helps to fight royal icing bleeding issues.

  • Dark Brown – 20 to 25 second consistency

DECORATING STEPS :

Be sure that middle pink section is crusted well before add hot fudge layer. Use tweezers to add rainbow sprinkles onto wet brown chocolate icing. Let crust.
