Floral Communion Cross Cookie Tutorial

Sweet Jenny Belle - Communion Cookie Tutorial

My eldest daughter is celebrating her First Holy Communion next month. I'm already planning the cookie favors and cake. I think these floral crosses would also be perfect for Easter or a baby's baptism. They are pretty easy and beautiful!

Need a royal icing recipe? Come check my post here.

What you will need:
Cross cookie cutter - mine was purchased from Kaleida Cuts on Etsy
White - flood consistency - no tip
Pink - soft piping consistency - no tip
Peach - soft piping consistency - no tip
Lilac - soft piping consistency - no tip
Sage  soft piping consistency - PME tip 00
Wilton vintage sugar balls (I purchased mine at Michael's)

The first thing you will need to do is flood the cross cookie in white. You can either let it dry overnight or pop them in a dehydrator for 10 minutes at 90 degrees.

Next, pipe a loopy cross in soft pink with no tip. You can see the pattern in my pictures or watch the YouTube video at the end of the post.

Then you will squeeze just a couple large dots in the center of the cross in soft pink; leave some room for the colors.

Then add a few more large dots with peach icing.

Finally, finish up the "flowers" with a few lilac dots.

I used a PME tip 0 with my green icing because the consistency was a bit loose and I wanted more control. If you have a stiffer icing, then you can do this with no tip.

I added a few leaves and lines of sage green to the outside of the bouquet.

Before your icing dots dry completely, place a few sugar balls around the bouquet. You could place them with tweezers. I didn't have a pair of tweezers, so I dipped a cookie paintbrush in icing to "grab" the sugar ball and place it where you like,

And that's it - really, pretty simple, but they are so pretty. You could place them on a nice tray for dessert at the reception or place them in cello bags with ribbon for a sweet favor.
