Decorated Lamb Cookies

These lamb cookies are easy to make with the right tools and a few pointers thanks to Sweetopia's Marian. Hope you have fun making them!

List of Materials

  • NFSC – No Fail Sugar Cookie Recipe
  • Antonia74′s Royal Icing Recipe
  • 3 Piping Bags & 3 Couplers
  • Piping Tips #1, #2, #14
  • Lamb Cookie Cutter
  • White & Black Food Gel Coloring
  • Decorative Ribbon (optional)

You’ll need white icing in 2 different consistencies for this cookie. For the face and legs, flood icing, which is about the consistency of yoghurt, and for the lamb’s wool, a thicker icing. When you dip a spoon into the icing and pull upwards, a stiff peak will form and stay standing straight up. Another way you can tell if it’s thick enough, is that you’ll be able to see “ribbons” form when the icing is being mixed.

Color your white icing, white. It may seem silly, but makes a difference.

You can use any kind of star piping tip to create the lamb’s wool, I used Wilton’s #14.


You’ll need to pipe ‘shells’ for the lamb’s wool. Here’s a close-up of the basic technique.


Using the flood icing and a #2 tip, pipe the face and legs. Let it set for a few minutes.
Using the thicker icing and a #14 star tip, pipe your shells from left to right, generally following the shape of the lamb.


Either with an edible bow or with craft bows of your choice adhere the ribbon to the lamb with a dab of royal icing. (I used gingham Martha Stewart ribbons). Making sure the base is dry, use a #1 tip to pipe two small, black dots for the eye and nose.


Serve, package or present as a pretty Easter display.
