I was having an emoji party, where everyone was told to come dressed as an emoji. I picked the bride ( obviously). It was a great time, I thought the best dessert would be emoji cookies!
I used store bought sugar cookies I bought two mixes and made it according to the package. This was my first time attempting icing cookies and I was a bit nervous. I had a few pasty bags and tips.
Here is the recipe I followed for the icing: which I doubled
- 4 cups powdered sugar
- 6 tablespoons whole milk
- 6 tablespoons light corn syrup
- 1 ½ teaspoon almond extract
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together powdered sugar and milk until smooth.
Add in corn syrup, and 1 ½ teaspoons almond extract. You can use vanilla extract if you wish; but almond really tastes the best here.
To be honest it was bit runny and I should of added more sugar but it was tasty!
I cut all the cookies into circles, with the exception of some triangles for the little poops. Which I pinched on the ends and top to make the curves of the poop.
First I covered all of the cookies with yellow icing, and some with “red” for the angry faces. The triangles were covered in brown.
I tried to make every emoji possible, I wish I took more pictures, but it was definitely fun to create all the different faces. I made pink and blue for accents, like the heart emojis or crying. They were all surprisingly easy to make! They would make a great gift for someone too!
