Summer is here and that means longer days, sunshine and ice cream (cookies, that is)! Making a cookie that looks like food is always fun. A popular trend right now is to make a set of cookies that look like a charcuterie tray. We might attempt that one someday, but for now, we want to make cookies that look like ice cream! What is your favorite ice cream flavor? Do you like your ice cream served in a cone or a cup? Do you like whipped cream and a cherry, or no thank you plain is perfectly fine? Either way, ice cream is a special summertime treat so we decided to make Ice Cream Cookies for a little fun in the sun.
Supplies needed to make Ice Cream Cookies:
Steps to make the classic ice cream cone:
Outline cone using brown pipe consistency icing.
Fill cone using brown flood consistency icing.
Drawing with a slight curve, pipe waffle cone lines with brown pipe consistency icing.

Steps to make soft serve ice cream cone:
Outline wafer cone separating the top and bottom with brown pipe consistency icing.

Using white pipe consistency icing, add the whipped cream using the same technique as the ice cream.
Add a cherry using pink pipe consistency icing, smooth the cherry using a scribe tool or toothpick. After the icing has dried add pink prism powder.
