Peppa Pig Frosted Sugar Cookies
Once we conquered our Peppa Pig cupcakes, we decided to make Pegga Pig Frosted Sugar Cookies too. There aren’t a lot of Peppa Pig party supplies out there, but fortunately we live in a world where there is such a thing as Etsy. There are many sellers on Etsy who use their 3D printers to make Peppa Pig cookie cutters. We ordered one and got it within a week. We then used the same decorating techniques that we did on the Peppa Pig Cupcakes, and Voila!! Needless to say the cupcakes and cookies were a huge hit at the party. We even had one of the other moms ask us to make some for her child’s party.
How to Make Peppa Pig Frosted Sugar Cookies
You will need:
Our Peppa Pig Frosted Sugar Cookies start with our Best Sugar Cookie Recipe. This sugar cookie dough is easy to work with, tastes great and really holds it’s shape during the baking process. You can find the recipe and detailed instructions on how to make the dough here.
We used a Peppa Pig cookie cutter that we found on Etsy. It was the perfect shape, very reasonably priced and arrived the same week we bought it. Thanks Etsy!
Next you will need to prepare some of our Best Buttercream Frosting (you will find the recipe and detailed directions here). Separate the frosting into three bowls. The first bowl will be for covering the cookies so you will need more of this color than the other two. Use 1 to 1 1/2 drops of Americolor Deep Pink Food Coloring to color the frosting a very light pink.
Now use the frosting in the other two bowls to create two more darker shades of Peppa Pig Pink, we used Americolor Deep Pink Food Coloring in the following amounts:
- Medium Pink (used to outline the Peppa Pig Cookie) – 3 Drops of Deep Pink Food Coloring
- Dark Pink (used for Peppa Pig’s mouth, cheek and nose) – 5 Drops of Deep Pink Food Coloring
Here is the Peppa Pig Sugar Cookie ready to be decorated. Our The Best Sugar Cookie Recipe is so great. Every cookie turns out the same and tastes delicious too.
Here’s a picture of our girl Peppa that we used as inspiration for our cookies.
First, using a knife or spreader cover the sugar cookie with a layer of light pink frosting.
Now add the Wilton Candy Eyes. Place the first eye under the first ear. The second eye should go next to it on the nose area of the cookie. We used the end of a decorating tip to create a guide for the dark pink cheek area.
Now use the medium pink frosting in a pastry bag with a Wilton #3 decorating tip to create an outline around Peppa’s face and ears as shown in the picture above.
You should also use the medium pink frosting to outline the Wilton Candy Eyes.
Finally, use the dark pink frosting to fill in the cheek circle that you created previously. Add a smile and two dots for Peppa Pig’s nose and you are done!
These Peppa Pig Frosted Sugar Cookies are very easy to decorate. The most difficult part will be waiting for the Peppa Pig Cookie Cutter to arrive from Etsy. They are a super fun treat for a Peppa Pig Birthday Party and will look great on your party dessert table!
