Royal Baby Ultrasound Cookies

in Pop Culture, Sugar Cookies

Unless you are living off the grid, you recently learned that Prince William and Duchess Kate are expecting their first child.

Heck, even if you’re living off the grid, you probably heard about it somehow. Maybe a squirrel told you.

Cue my unadulterated, intense excitement!!

WELL.

I am in possession of the exclusive first picture of the said British bundle of joy. Wanna see?

There he is!!

Or maybe she?

Or maybe both!?

Royal Baby Ultrasound Cookies

Inspired by these cookies

  • Ultrasoundy shaped cookies (I used a medium sized bowl, a pizza cutter, and a small circle cutter)
  • Black icing, outline and flood
  • Light gray icing, 20 second consistency
  • Beige/gold icing, outline and flood
  • Pastry bags, couplers, #1 and #2 tips
  • Toothpicks
  • Small paintbrush
  • Vodka
  • Gold and silver luster dust
  • Disco dust
1. Roll out your sugar cookie dough. I didn’t want tiny cookies, and my biggest circle cutter wasn’t large enough, so I used an inverted bowl to cut out a large circle.
I then cut out a small circle right in the middle.
To get four cookies, I made two lines through the circle with the pizza cutter, like this:
Bake cookies as directed.
2. Outline and flood the cookies with black icing and a #2 tip.
3. Using the light gray icing, you’re going to make some random blobs/lines of icing at the top of the cookie, at the bottom of the cookie, and then some in the middle. For the baby, make a distinct profile of the face and a general oval shape for the body.
4. Use a toothpick to swirl around the icing (avoid the profile so it actually looks like a baby!).
You can swirl as little or as much as you like, depending on the look that you prefer. Allow cookie to dry for at least one hour.
5. Now, it is time to pipe the crowns. I wanted two different crowns – silver for a girl, and gold for a boy. You can stick with one color to make it easier, if you want! Pipe the crowns with a #1 tip.
You’ll see that I used uncolored icing here. Pure laziness, I tell you! You can do it if you want, but I think I should have used colored icing for the crowns to achieve a deeper color.
Allow crowns to dry for several hours, even overnight.
6. Mix luster dust and vodka in a small bowl. Paint silver and/or gold onto the crowns.
I wanted a little bit more sparkle for the girl’s royal headwear, so while the luster dust was still drying, I sprinkled on a little disco dust.
All done!

Haha – it seems that way, doesn’t it? I had planned on posting something Christmas-y, but I just HAD to make something for this occasion! I couldn’t help myself :) I was going to do cupcakes with crowns, but then decided that ultrasound cookies are weirder, and therefore, better ;)

I got a huge kick out of theses!! Weird and unusual in such an awesome way!! I had a feeling you’d come up with something spectacular when the royal baby rumors were confirmed.

Adorable. And awesome. Quite possibly the cutest ultrasound pics I’ve seen, including my own babies. Also, love the tag, “royal baby.” Hopefully that tag will bring you all the tabloid traffic. (;

I heard rumors but wasn’t sure if that was confirmed! And you are too cute to make these cookies for them! I must make these for my boss who is currently carrying her 3rd child. She’ll be thrilled!

it’s people like you who have awesome brain ideas that improve my cookie life! Because I thought wow I could never do that… and then after seeing the post… it’s awesome and do-able! Thanks for having awesome ideas for me to copy (if I needed to do a royal wedding baby cookie, and I’d give you all the credit!)

Awww, thank you Alexis! It is really not hard at all, not even that many colors! Somehow mixing all of those icing colors makes it seem like a harder cookie to me :)
