These Frozen princesses are pretty popular these days; I see them all over Pinterest. I do have to admit that I haven't seen this movie. Good thing for the internet and my mom. My mom helped me decide which cookies to make and gave me the idea to make the ice castle cookie. Thanks mom for all your help!
I found these cookie cutters of the Frozen sisters, that I think are great. I didn't want to purchase the cutters if I'm not going to be making many Frozen-themed cookies. I found many other examples using all kinds of different cookies cutters. For the Elsa and Anna cookies, I used this angel cookie cutter that I already had. The cutter is four inches tall and, I cut the wings off. I looked at many pictures and tutorials from other Frozen cookies that have already been made. I took bits and pieces from the ones I liked and made my own drawings of the sisters to fit the cookie cutter I used.
The first thing I did was to transfer my drawings of the girls onto the cookie with a food coloring marker. For Elsa, I started by piping and flooding her skirt with light blue icing. While the icing was still wet, I covered it with light blue sanding sugar to give a sparkly look. Then I piped and flooded the bodice part of the dress with the same light blue as the skirt. I allowed both sections of the dress to dry. Next I used a light blue icing to pipe and flood arms of the dress. When the bodice and arms were dry, I took some pearl lust dust and brushed it on. This gave the dress a shimmery look. I added the hand and face next with flesh tone icing. I used a light yellow icing to fill in the hair. For Elsa's braid, I used a leaf tip #352 and added in a few snowflake sprinkles while the braid was still wet. The final touches were to add pink lust dust to make her cheeks rosy, pipe on the face, and a few more snowflake sprinkles above her hand.
Anna was more complex. Again I started by piping and flooding the dark blue skirt. Next I moved to her braids. I used brown "15 second" icing and a small #1 tip to achieve the braided look. On the one side I added a few white lines. Once the braids dried, I piped her face over the braids to give the look of the braids coming from behind Anna's head. Then I piped and flooded the black bodice of her dress. When the face was completely dry, I added in the hair. I piped one section allowing it to dry, then did the next to achieve the look of parted hair. I also added a white line on the top of her on the corresponding side as the white braid. Next, I piped and flooded her arms in the same light blue icing I used for Elsa's dress. Once the arms had dried, I added in the hands and pink cape. The final touches were adding the same rosy cheeks as Elsa, piping on her face, and adding all the details to her dress.
I used my favorite plaque cookie cutter for the "Let it Go" cookie. The cookie cutter can be found here. I used the same two blue colors I used on Elsa to ice this cookie. To obtain the snowflake background I engineered my own stencil. I would have just purchased a snowflake shape from Silhouette, but I want a simple outline and all their snowflakes were too complex. I created a snowflake in Adobe Illustrator. Once I had the shape, I created a pattern out of it. I saved the pattern as a .jpg file and then cut it out with my Silhouette. I followed this font for the lettering. The final touch was to pipe a white bead board around the outside. I did the same thing for the number "4"s. The "4" cookie cutter can be found here.
The castle cookie cutter is from Chapix Cookies. I won mine at Cookie Con this year. I don't think it's available for purchase. I piped the tops of spires with blue icing and sprinkled them with light blue sanding sugar. When dry, I piped and flooded the rest of the castle. When the castle dried, I used peal lust dust on the whole castle. Then I piped lines to create the faceted look. I also piped a door and covered them with light blue sanding sugar.
