How to decorate Starfish and Seahorse Sugar Cookies with Royal Icing

If there's a beach themed party and I'm invited...you can bet I'll be bringing beach themed cookies.  I thought I'd show you how I made them in this video tutorial. These cookies were for a friend’s beach themed bridal shower and featured starfish, seahorses, sand dollars and monogram designs.

I also made a coordinating cake and cupcakes so that there would be some beachy dessert as well! The cake is two 6” rounds of delicious vanilla cake filled with vanilla buttercream icing, then covered with fondant which I dyed a soft teal, inspired by the ocean. I made some details like shells, flip flops and a sand castle out of fondant and sprinkled brown sugar around the base for the sand. I then finished it off with some royal icing bubbles!

The cupcakes are a rich chocolate recipe that I love to use for both cakes and cupcakes. I topped it with some sand and teal buttercream icing and topped them each with a fondant shell.
