I was asked to create lingerie cookies for a bridal shower. There is fine line when you design lingerie cakes/cookies for bachelorette parties and/or bridal showers. You don’t want anything too risqué, that might offend a mother-in-law to be (for example), yet you want the bride and her friends to have fun with the cookies. I find using vintage turn of the century inspiration keeps the theme elegant and tastefully decorated.
I have to admit I do enjoy creating lingerie cookies; they are an awesome canvas for royal icing piping. For the cookies above I used several piping techniques that I thought it would be beneficial for this video tutorial to teach how to create lace, beads, line work, and sharpen your piping skills. My inspiration for the lingerie was La Perla’s website, they have exquisite and classy garments, with a modern vintage note.

Covering of the Cookie:
You can cover the cookie in either royal icing or fondant.
If fondant is your covering of your choice you will need to allow 4 to 6 hours for the fondant to set.
If royal icing is your covering of choice, you will want to use a 15 second topcoat to cover the cookie, and allow 24 to 48 hours for the royal icing to dry completely.
The royal icing must be completely dry.
To Achieve Cold Boiled Water:
I use an electric tea kettle to boil the water, next I allow the water to come to room temperature.
Finally I pour the room temperature water into a food safe (labeled) spray bottle, and place the spray bottle into the refrigerator.
Once cold, the spray bottle of water is ready to use.
Now that you have all your materials together, please enjoy the video tutorial!
If you chose to pipe lace on the topcoat portion allow the coating to completely dry!
