Academy Awards Cookies for Saks

Academy Awards Cookies by Whipped Bakeshop

This week, we made some fancy Academy Awards cookies for our friends over at Saks Fifth Avenue. Because the shape of the statue would be a bit too fragile for a cookie, I piped the statue silhouettes onto parchment paper first. Then I hand-painted each one gold and added a touch of edible glitter. The next step was to fill an elegantly shaped cookie with black royal icing, and drop an Oscar into each one to dry. Voila! A glittery and dramatic cookie befitting the awards ceremony!

If you look closely, you can see that each figure is iced a little differently. This was purposeful, as I like that you can see they are made by hand, and I felt it mimicked the reflective nature of the metallic statuette.

Here’s the cookie all wrapped up and ready to be presented to a lucky person at Saks. Isn’t he handsome?
