I used brown sugar cookie as the cookie base as usual as it tastes and smells really good! You may find the recipe for brown sugar cookie and royal icing here.
Wrapped up for the party!
Just to share some photos of the process...
I sandwiched an ice-cream stick between two cookie cutouts that are 4mm thick.
Cutting out the dough using homemade plastic template.
Freshly baked cookiepops!
Tracing and drawing the outline and details with edible marker and template
Icing in progress!
Finally finished! I flooded with orange and yellow icing at the same time, then used a toothpick to merge the two colours a little to create a gradual shading effect.
Icing McQueen requires quite a bit of patience as there are many details involved. I am glad that there are only 5 to make :p. Cookiepops aren't the only things I baked for the party. Keep a lookout for Lightning McQueen and car tyre macarons!
