I am going to be making cookies for a big company. I have their logo and it's going to be just plain round shaped cookie with a logo on it. If you could take a look at the sample picture below (not same company), how in the world can I make the logo name in perfect size and lettering? Projector? Icing sheet? Help!

Can you design it on the computer, lay it on top of the cookie and trace with a toothpick? Then go over it with
royal icing or antonia74's icing. That's probably where I would start! Good luck!

How about making a template of the name to the size you want. After the base icing is dried, place your template on cookie and pipe the company name and then lift the template off.
Hope that makes sense.

This sounds like time consuming though, but I can give it a try and see what happen. Thanks, christeena!

I have those and they're too big for my cookies though. It's helpful for my cake. I've thought about stencil, but it's so hard for me to cut so many tiny hole. icon_redface.gif

surfergina,

Trace the design on all the cookies, then go over it with the icing. Sometimes what I think is going to be time consuming, ends up taking less time because of the assembly line tactic. I would not wait until your base icing is TOTALLY dry to trace with a toothpick (to leave indention) as you could crack the base icing. Wait until it's just dry to enough to lay your paper on it without sticking to trace. Post pics when your done!

Template with the actual company name. Then you can either laminate or place in a plastic sleeve. After that cut out the letters and you have your template.

If you have the ability to use the frosting sheets, you could scan your logo onto the sheet, but make them so that you can put maybe 12 on a page, then you can put them on the cookies. You can also buy from Kopy Kake the sheets that have the round discs already on the sheets, then you just print inside each circle.

I have the book "Fun Cookie Bouquets" by Autumn Carpenter and these are her directions for "perfect lettering":

1. Allow the icing on the cookie to harden overnight. Print the words from your computer in the desired font and size.

2. Turn the printed paper over and trace the text with PMA certified non-toxic pencil.

3. Turn the printed paper right side up and place on cookie. Go over the letters again, making sure the paper doesn't slip. Remove the paper and the letters should leave faint text.

4. Use a food color pen to trace the faint text.

It's important to use the non-toxic pencil described since you are essentially marking on your cookie with it. I have not looked to try to find one yet.

Hope this helps!

Wow, this really make sense. I'm going to try this method. Thank you for letting me know about the book - this sounded like a great book to buy. I wonder where can I find the non-toxic pencil? I'm going to try and google-it to see if I can find it. Thanks!

I made these for my work. I used edible images. Pics in my photos! I did a layout of 10 images on an 8x10 frosting sheet, then cut them out with a knife and ruler. I was originally going to do business card size, and use the precut business card frosting sheets, but decided to do it the way I did b/c you can get different sizes.

I also did another, simple, business card size logo cookie, but forgot to take a pic of it...

definitely, if you have access to an edible printer, go that route...

cryssi - thanks! The edible printer is on my list. I will probably order it in a few weeks. I can't wait!

Hi

I use the Autumn carpenter method ALL the time. I just did a loggerhead turtle using that (in my Pix). That way I could pipe the design exactly like I wanted.

The pencils that the little kids use are non-toxic. I called the company and talked with them about it before I started using it. They are the big fat ones by Ticonderoga. Any store will have them.

Good Luck

Julia

Very cool turtles, acookieobsession!

The logo cookies you're trying to replicate look like the work of RollingPinProductions (I could be wrong, though). She does the most amazing work! Personally, I would use a projector. It will be time consuming, but I don't know of anyway around it. If you use edible paper, two things: 1) your background will have to be white OR 2) you can do the whole thing as an edible image, but then you will not have any 'raised' icing for the lettering. Either way will look nice.

I haven't tried the Autumn Carpenter method, but I bet that would work really well, too. I met her last summer, she's very nice and answers e-mails, so you could always get in touch with her if you have more questions about her method.

Good luck - send us pixs when you're done!

We do logos with edible ink and printer on wafer paper attach with very little gel.

I have done these with chocolate. First I put image on computer and then flip it so that the letters are reverse. I then put acetate on top and trace in reverse with chocolate if you know what I mean. You might be able to do it as a run out with royal icing as well not sure. Well just a suggestion hope it helps. thumbs_up.gif
