These Peppa Pig cookies are super simple to make and are perfect for beginner cookie decorators.
The first thing I did with these cookies is to cut them out using a template that I printed. Since these cookies are hand-cut, you can use any template you like. I found this image online, printed it onto card stock and cut it out. I used the template to cut the cookie dough. There are some Peppa Pig cookie cutters available if you prefer using a cutter. Etsy has a large selection of different cookie cutters. There is also a link at the end of this post for a set of Peppa Pig cookie cutters that are available on Amazon which will also work for these cookies.
To start decorating this cookie, I’m using a 15 second consistency icing. Outline and flood Peppa’s head in a light pink color. To learn more about icing consistency, check out my Icing Consistency page in my Cookie Basics series.
You can use a scribe tool, or toothpick to smooth out your icing and clean up the edges.
While the icing is still wet, pipe Peppa’s eyes. This is called a “wet-on-wet” technique where you pipe wet icing onto wet icing below. This allows for the icing to settle together and become smooth once dry. After you pipe the white of Peppa’s eyes, you can add black to the centers for her pupils.
Allow this part of the cookie to dry, or “crust” before moving foward.
Next, using a darker pink icing in 15 second consistency, outline and flood Peppa’s dress.
Next, using a stiffer piping consistency icing, outline Peppa’s face and snout and add details.
Again with a stiffer piping consistency icing, you can add the rest of the details like her smile, arms, legs, and feet.
Finally, use a powdered food coloring to add blush to her cheeks.
