Graphic Design Style Floral Cookies -- Guest Post with Cookies Art By Shirlyn


Graphic design style wedding shower sugar cookies -- cookie decorating tutorial
You guys. I hope you are ready for this blog post. When Shirlyn  of Cookies Art by Shirlyn showed me these graphic design style floral wedding cookies I almost lost my mind. They are GORGEOUS!!!! The colors! The details! I'm still obsessing over them. I just kept going back over and over again like a total creeper in the night just staring at them. Luckily for all of us, even though Shirlyn had just moved to the United States, she sweetly agreed to show us all how she made them!!! Isn't she the best?!!!


When Georganne contacted me to ask if I can write a guest post, I was so excited and happy to do it for sure! She asked if I can do tutorial on how to make one of the two designs (Cake Stand and Congratulations) from the bridal shower set I did back in March. I just told her - I am going to do both!

This is the bridal shower set that was inspired by the invitation card. 



Below is the partly scanned invitation card which I will use later for an image transfer.


Tools needed for both cookies:

1. Cake stand cutter (Lilaloa’s The Cookie Companion Cookie Cutter 10 pieces set)
2. Congratulation plaque cutter from Bobbi’s Cookies and Cutters
3. Medium to thick consistency royal icing (White, Light Pink, Red, Teal Turquoise Green, Olive) and Midnight Blue thick consistency
4. Americolor Wedgewood for airbrushing
5. Americolor Tulip Red, Midnight, White for details painting
6. Vodka
7. Airbrush system
8. Woodgrain stencil and Stripe stencil
9. PICO projector (you can get it from Amazon)
10. Paint brush and paint palette

Let’s start with the Congratulations plaque cookie. 

Step #1: Flood the plaque cookie and let it completely dry.
Step #2: Airbrush top half of the cookie with a stripe stencil. I used a plastic scraper as a blocker to block the bottom half of the cookie. You can use paper or anything that works.


This is how it looks after airbrushed.


Step #3: Using PICO projector for image transfer -- pipe the flowers (the scanned image from the invitation card) and let it set. 



Video above shows how I did image transfer using PICO projector.



Step #4: Use paint brush with gel color thinned with vodka, add the details on the flowers and leaves.


Step #5: Pipe “Congratulations” using PICO projector with thick RI consistency.

The font used is called "Autumn in November". 



Video above shows how I pipe the letters using PICO projector. 





Next is the cake stand cookie.


Step #1 and #2: Pipe cake stand as in picture and let it set.
Step #3: Airbrush cake stand edge with any color you want. Here I am using Wedgewood color thinned with vodka.
Step #4: Pipe cake’s lower layer and let it set.
Step #5: Pipe cake’s top layer and let it set.

Step #6: Airbrush with wood grain stencil using Wedgewood gel color thinned with vodka (or any airbrushed colors). Here I use a plastic scraper as a blocker to cover the cake stand part. You can use paper or anything else which can cover the stand part.

 This is how it looks like after airbrushed.


Step #7: Using PICO projector to do image transfer -- pipe the flowers (the scanned image from the invitation card).
Step #8: Paint the final details for the flowers and leaves using paint brush and gel color thinned with vodka.
