Help with royal icing cookies.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hey Everyone~

I hope someone on here could give me a good idea to how much I should price 36 (3dozen) royal icing cookies(mickey mouse).

I normally don't do royal icing cookies(just cakes) but I have a customer that would like theses cookies for her sons birthday. It would include also doing 40 cupcakes and chocolate dipped strawberries. I don't want to tell her to go somewhere else but I don't know how to price being that I will have to buy the cutters and I never really done them before etc... So if anyone could let me know what is involved and if it is something I should consider doing. Thanks a lot!

i guess it would all depend on the size of the cookies.  I use Sugarbell's Cookie Pricing Chart and adjust it to my area.  Here is a link to her page.  Hope it helps.

The cookies can take some time.  Depending on your icing and the humidity, each color can take a day to dry.  If you haven't worked with decorated cookies before, there is a reason they cost about $1 per inch of cookie. 

 

A Mickey Mouse cookie could take several days to complete. There is a small learning curve to the icing consistency and flooding/edging.

Thank you both, I loved the website! I know they can take a lot of time to work on and I don't think the mother understands what is involved when making theses cookies. I appreciate the advice and will take some time to learn this process before I decide on anything.Thanks

Hi. I do cakes, cupcakes, and cake pops, but recently decided to learn more about decorated sugar cookies. I posted a question on SugarBelle's fb page and she highly recommended "The Complete Photo Guide to Cookie Decorating", so I ordered it from Amazon, along with "Cookie Craft", which also has great reviews! HTH!

If you do those rodent cookies be sure to dye your black flow icing about 2 days ahead.  It takes time to darken the black and I usually add a bit more black the second day, let sit in sealed container in fridge and by third day or second night I have a beautiful black royal icing.  You will want to let base flood coat dry at least overnight before you add details so it is nice and hard.  ( This way you can wipe off mistake if it happens)

Of course chocolate is the answer!

I made Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse cookies with fondant.  They were very easy to do.  I just did the top half black, the bottom half red, added white dots and the bow for Minnie.  Don't know if this is an option for you or if she only wants the royal icing.
