Hear the roars and cheers from your guests when you present these Academy Award Cookies. You may even get a standing ovation when you share Oscars, Clapboards, Movie Reels, and Stars.
Either you love it or hate it...the Academy Awards. Hi! It's Kim, The Partiologist, hoping you love the Academy Awards or at least watch to see what they're wearing. Or perhaps you're having a party? In any case, I wanted to make cookies worthy of an Oscar.
If you can't find an Oscar-shaped cookie cutter, a mummy-shaped cutter would work as well.
The other two cutters used were a round and a square.
Roll and bake your sugar cookies.
Cut out a square-shaped cookie.
Before baking, cut a slice across the top, almost to the edge.
Open the slice up, making it into a clapboard-shaped cookie.
Mix up a batch of white royal icing.
Add Wilton Buttercup Yellow food color.
Flood the top part of the Oscar-shaped cookie.
Use a gold sheen airbrush color and airbrush machine.
(If you don't have a machine, gold luster sprays like Wilton's Gold Color Mist will work too.)
As soon as you are finished spraying the cookie with a gold sheen, sprinkle with EDIBLE disco dust.
I use the little shaker so I can control the amount of edible disco dust applied to the cookie.
Use black royal icing on the bottom of the Oscar statue cookie.
Outline and flood.
Flood the round cookie with grey royal icing.
Spray this cookie with a silver sheen airbrush color. (Or silver metallic spray)
Use a small round cookie cutter to cut circles out of black fondant.
Place the round fondant pieces onto each round silver cookie, making the movie reel.
Use a rolling mincer to cut long strips of white fondant.
Cut a piece of black fondant in a square and also cut a slice across the top, almost to the edge.
Add the black fondant to the cookie and add tiny pieces of the white fondant strips.
Cut and bake a rectangular-shaped cookie.
Cover with a black piece of fondant (or black royal icing).
Use a round decorating tip to cut tiny round circles.
Add white fondant squares and tiny round fondant circles to make the film strip.
Start with a grey cookie, spray with black, and immediately sprinkle with white edible disco dust.
To make the Hollywood Star, sprinkle a piece of red fondant with edible gold disco dust.
Cut a five-point start out of red fondant and place it on the sparkly black cookie.
