I think one of the top trends for birthday parties right now is unicorns and no party is complete without a set of unicorn sugar cookies!! Little girls can’t seem to get enough of unicorns and this unicorn obsession doesn’t seem to be dying anytime soon. There are unicorns involved in everything lately including unicorn slime, unicorn poop, unicorn cakes, unicorn cookies, unicorn sprinkles, unicorn inspired makeup, etc. I can’t keep up with it all!
This magical unicorn cookie mix was made for a 7th birthday party. It was a fun mix to make with lots of color and a variety of cookie shapes and sizes. Also for this set, I got to make some mini cookies! I love cookie minis but rarely get asked to make them. They are so much fun and it seems no matter what design you choose, they are always cute and adorable!
I used several different cutters for this set – including 3 different unicorn cutters. For the unicorn plaque and number 7, I just modified a plaque cutter and a number 7 cutter to include a fancy unicorn horn on top. I dug through so many cutters trying to find something that could be used for a unicorn horn. I found a mini cheer leading megaphone cutter that ended up working perfectly. To add the horn to the plaque and number 7, I just cut the “horns” out with the megaphone cutter and trimmed off the handle. Then I used the same cutter to cut out a piece at the top of the plaque and number 7 cookies. Then stuck the horn in that cut out space and baked them. Voila! Unicorn cookies!
The 3 main cookies cutters are a mini unicorn cutter from Truly Mad Plastics, a unicorn head cutter from Bobbis Cookies Cutters on Etsy, and an Ann Clark cutter that you can buy from Amazon. The other minis are also from Truly Mad Plastics. The plaque cutter is from Amazon and the number 7 is from a number set that also came from Amazon.
This set included 2 dozen regular size cookies and 3 dozen mini cookies. Packaged in their boxes, I think they mix looks great together. These window boxes from BRP box shop are some of my favorite boxes. I used to get all of my packaging supplies from Nashville Wraps but unfortunately, their selection of window boxes is much smaller than what BRP box shop offers. I still buy almost all of my other packaging supplies from Nashville Wraps though including the tissue shreds and ribbons. Nashville Wraps does have a good selection of bakery boxes at great prices that I still use for cookies that need to be shipped.
If you have any questions about this set, leave me a comment below. Use my Vanilla Sugar Cookie Recipe and my Royal Icing Recipe for these cookies. My cookie dough recipe does NOT spread when baking and you don’t have to chill it before use!
