This was the perfect cookie for kids that love to play dress up and dream of being a ballerina. After searching high and low for the right ballet slipper cookie cutter, I ended up hand cutting them. Here is the paper template I drew.
Next comes the fun part and also the part that takes patience. Icing is a step by step process: 1. Outline in pink. 2. Flood in pink. Then wait to dry at least 4 hours.
3. Flood the top of the foot white.
4. After everything is dry, use a piping consistency pink to do the details over the top. I generally use a #1 tip.
Here is the final platter with both cookies.
