And now I have the Modern English song stuck in my head. Which is not a bad way to spend the day 🙂
But I digress…here’s a quick little tutorial on how to make these happy little love cones.
To start, bake your cookies with the use of an ice cream cookie cutter and a small heart cookie cutter. I apologize, but I didn’t get a picture of the process with the dough. Basically, you begin by cutting into the top of your ice cream cookie with the bottom of the heart. Cut out a small heart from the dough, place it into the ice cream gap that you just made. And then repeat. And repeat. Until you have three heart scoops like this:
To ice the cookies you’ll need the following colors:
– Light brown (piping & flooding consistency)
– Dark brown (piping & flooding)
– Pink (piping & flooding)
– Red (piping & flooding)
– White (piping)
– Black (piping)
Begin by outlining the first heart scoop in red.
Then flood the red outline and outline the top heart scoop with pink.
And flood the pink heart as well. At this point, you’ll need to wait until the two hearts dry a bit before proceeding. Once those are dry, outline the middle heart in dark brown.
Then flood the cookie.
Using the light brown, outline the cone part of the cookie and flood.
The cookie will have to dry a bit more before we can add final details. So go get some lunch, fold some laundry, waste 20 minutes or so.
Then add your final details. Use the dark brown to detail the cone. Pipe white and light brown sprinkles on the ice cream scoops. And top them off with some sweet smiles 🙂
I’ll stop the world and melt with you
hmmm hmmm hmmm
And there you have it. Have a sweet day everyone!
