Princess Sofia the First Themed Cookies for a Special Little Lady

October 21, 2013

Our grand daughter Sophie turned four on October 18th.  She celebrated with her friends on Sunday with a Princess themed party.  Currently her *most favourite* show and her*most favourite* books are those of Princess Sofia the First so, when she received a Princess Sofia the First doll from her parents she was over the moon with delight.

Her party included her little friends arriving dressed as either Royal Knights or Princesses and Miss Sophie, wide-eyed with excitement and anticipation was a gracious hostess to each of them.

The Evil Flying Dragon (played by her sister Ella) kept the young ones entertained throughout a scavenger hunt that sent them scrambling to uncover the clues that would lead them to the Princess’ cache of stolen goods taken by the Dragon and return them to their rightful owner.

Once the treasured items were gathered and returned, the kids mixed up a magic potent (mixed fruit drinks and fresh berries) to ward off any evil that may try to harm the Princess.  Gathered together at the royal dining table they toasted each other’s bravery while facing down the Evil Dragon as they feasted on pizza, fresh fruit and veggies before finishing off their celebration with a hefty slice of birthday cake.  Of course it was decorated with Princesses and Royal Steeds!

Princess themed decorated sugar cookies were a part of the goody bags that each child went home with along with their own hand-made and hand decorated cardboard Knight Swords and Princess Tiaras.

The Princess Tiara cookies were the quickest to decorate and as I did not have a tiara or crown cookie cutter I re-fashioned a large dinosaur cutter and *poof* like magic, it worked!

The cookie was outlined and flooded with light pink piping and flood icing.

When the flood icing had dried completed, white piping icing was used to outline the pattern of the tiara.

White piping icing was the used to dot the entire tiara pattern.

Lightly brush white luster dust mixed with a small bit of alcohol (vodka) over all the white piping design for a little sheen.

The Princess Sofia the First cookies and the Knight’s Helmet cookies were done using my Kopykake projector.  After finding images on-line, printing them out and re-sizing them, I traced the designs onto the cookies with a black edible marker.

The cookies were then outlined with black piping icing.

Flood icing was then used to fill in the Knight’s Helmets (sky blue for the feathers and grey for the helmet). Copper & brown  icing was mixed together for the Princess’ hair and sky blue icing was used for her dress.

The Knight’s Helmets were left to dry overnight as were all the Princess Sofia the First Cookies, once the faces, arms and necks were flooded with tan flood icing.Princess Sofia the First Face, Arms and Neck Flooded with Tan Flood Icing

The next day when all the cookies had dried completely, the finishing details were added.  The Knight’s Helmets and feathers were detailed using a black edible marker as were the Princess’ eyes, together with blue.  Brown edible marker was used for her eyebrows and red for her mouth.  White piping icing was used to make her tiara and the beaded design on her dress.  Silver luster dust was used using the same method as noted above for the tiaras to add some sheen to the helmets and give them that metallic look.

How about you?  Is there a little one you know who loves anything to do with Princess Sofia the First?

Hi Renee ~ They are growing up so quickly. Ella is almost as tall as I am and I would think in another year she will be! Sophie is in Junior Kindergarten this year and loving it. Seems like it was only yesterday that had her first birthday!!

What cutie pie granddaughters you have, Paula! Sounds like the party was a huge success and your cookies were the icing on the cake, or should I say cookie:)


Paula October 25, 2013 at 4:55 pm

Hi Sue ~ Sophie and her little friends enjoyed the party and the cookies. It’s always fun to watch the little ones play and have fun together.

Paula, You done amazing job on them. I know Sophie was so excited with them, your granddaughter’s are so cute!


Paula October 25, 2013 at 4:52 pm

Thanks Loretta. We think our grand girls are pretty cute too but naturally, we’re a little biased :)


Cristin of Cristin's Cookies October 23, 2013 at 6:42 pm

Oh gosh Paula! Could your granddaughter BE any cuter?! What a super fun party! That is so creative! I bet Ella had fun too! Your cookies are absolutely amazing as always. I’ve never heard of Princess Sophia, but I think I have to find out about her for my little granddaughter Abigail. Thanks for sharing! Cristin


Paula October 25, 2013 at 5:02 pm

Hi Cristin! I don’t think it will be too long before you hear of Princess Sofia from little Abigail. Isn’t baking and decorating cookies for your grand children the best!


sweetsugarbelle October 23, 2013 at 8:10 pm

This theme scares me so much! You rocked them, Paula! And your grandaughters? Luckiest little princesses around!


Paula October 25, 2013 at 5:03 pm

Scare you Callye?!! I honestly don’t think that there is a image around that you cannot re-create beautifully onto a cookie. You are such a talent and an inspiration. Thanks so much for stopping by.


Jacquee October 24, 2013 at 7:02 pm

Oh, Paula, these are AWESOME!! You totally rocked her facial features! Your grandkids are little gems. Happy Belated Birthday to Sophie (who looks a lot like you)! xx


Paula October 25, 2013 at 5:05 pm

Hi Jacquee ~ They were fun to make for Sophie and her friends and yes, I quite agree. The grand girls are little treasures :)


The Partiologist October 25, 2013 at 10:46 am

Those cookies are as cute as the little princess! She must have been thrilled with being princess and getting those cookies from you!


Paula October 25, 2013 at 5:07 pm

Thank you! Sophie was pretty happy, pretty sure her voracious sweet tooth had something to do with it too :)


Sharon October 27, 2013 at 1:37 pm

That sounds like a royal wedding! I have never heard of the show, but it sounds perfect for your grand daughter. Your treats in their goodie bags were a great way to keep the party going at home! Love their costumes and party plans!


Lora December 30, 2013 at 2:01 pm

First of all I could have loved to partake in that party. What fun! Those tiara cookies are amazing. Great job on repurposing a cutter. The others blow me away. Simply gorgeous. Amazing detail. What lucky adorable girls!


Marlene February 11, 2014 at 1:50 pm

Your cookies and grandchildren are great. I was just asked to make some for a friend .How did you transfer the pattern onto the cookie? I know you said you used edible ink but what did you use to place on the bare cookie itself? Did you make a stencil?
