Sugar cookie dough
Party hat cookie cutter, or laminated cutout shape
Pairing knife
Rolling pin
Royal icing
Icing bags
#3 icing tip for flooding
#1 icing tip for details
Gel food colour
Edible Glitter
Wax paper

1) Roll out cookie dough on a lightly floured surface.
2) Use a cookie cutter to make your cookie shapes. I didn’t have a cookie cutter in the shape of a party hat, so I got creative and made my own! I simply made this on my computer and laminated the back to prevent the butter from coming through. Then, hand-cut each cookie using a small knife.
3) Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes, until lightly golden on the edges.
4) Let cookies cool for 3-4 hours.
5) Using black flood consistency royal icing and a tip #3, outline and flood the bottom of each party hat cookie. Let dry for 6-8 hours, until dry to the touch.
6) Using a beige medium-thick consistency icing and tip #1, pipe the streamers at the top of the hat, and the “2016” pattern on top of the black portion.
7) Sprinkle edible glitter on wax paper, and gently dip the wet icing designs into the glitter.
8) Let cookies dry another 6-8 hours before handling. Once dried, you can use a small brush to clean up any excess glitter. Enjoy!
