Summer is on it’s way, let’s do a little swim suit cookie decorating. Add a bright splash of color to your next pool party or imagine all the fun places you could go with these cookies. Use our icing colors or create your own set of favorite colors to get started. We found the swim suit cookie cutter from a vendor at CookieCon back in February. Use any swim suit cookie cutter you have on hand, bikini’s or board shorts would be also be fun to decorate.

This is a fun set of cookies to create because it’s filled with a splash of bright colors. It’s a good example of how to take one cookie cutter and turn it into multiple designs. You can approach it in a few different ways. One option is to jump right in and start decorating. Another option, if you like to work like we do, is to start with a plan. We begin planning designs by tracing an outline of the cookie cutter using a sketchbook or scrap paper. You can modify each image and voila you are a swim suit designer! You might as well call Project Runway and let them know you are on your way to compete next season.

Originally we were thought about using a patriotic color theme. But eventually, we went with a cheerful and bright Florida vibe for this set of swim suit cookie decorating.

It’s time for the fun part…get creative!
