Are you a Disney addict? We are! We have season passes to all of the Disney parks in Orlando. We did the during the week pass since we are homeschoolers and it isn’t crowded. We also love to kick back and watch Disney movies and of course make Disney snacks like these Paint Your Own Mickey and Minnie Cookies!
They may look complicated but follow my directions below and you’ll see how fun and easy they are.
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup softened unsalted sweet cream butter
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tarter
3 cups flour
Mickey Mouse Head
Royal Icing Ingredients:
3 egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoon cream of tarter
3 cups powder sugar
-cream butter, sugar, vanilla and egg in a mixing bowl until well combined.
-in a small bowl add the dry ingredients and mix until combined.
-gradually pour in dry ingredients into the wet ingredients bowl and mix until well combined.
-once all ingredients are mixed and a dough ball has formed. (if still sticky add in a half cup of flour and mix until a firm ball of dough forms.) place dough into a ziplock bag or in a bowl with foil to place on top.
place in fridge for 2 hours so that the dough can rise. it won’t double in size like bread dough.
-separate the egg yolk from the whites. put the egg whites into a mixing bowl and trash the rest of the egg.
-add the sugar, cream of tarter and vanilla extra to the egg whites.
-beat on medium speed for 6 minutes.
-if the icing has a yellow color and looks like soup add in more powder sugar. about 1 cup.
-once the icing is done, pour it into a container that has a lid to it.
-divide the icing into 2 bowls. Put more of the white icing into the bowl for white and less into the other for the black color.
-in the bowl for the black icing add some black gel coloring to make the icing black. add a little more gel coloring to get the color you want.
-scoop black icing into a piping bag with #2 tip and the set aside in the fridge.
-scoop some white icing into a piping bag with a #2 tip.
-for the white icing. add in 1-3 tablespoons of water to thin the icing out. you want it to be thick and runny, not soup like. If it is soup like add in 1/4 cup of powder sugar to thicken it. pour into a squeeze bottle
