I made some tiny sugar cookie sugar cookies for you.


Yes, I love little and I kinda like to play with my food… But I’m sure you know that about me by now.

And you probably know that I made more than just baby cookies.

They’re cute on their own, but I really needed them to put on display.

Cookie Stands

On these 3-tier sugar cookie dessert stands I made.

EEek! Cookies on cookies. Key-ute.

Making Sugar Cookies

I love sugar cookies since they require a few basic ingredients that I almost always have on hand.

They can be baked in no time – especially with the recipe I’ve been using from my friend Bridget at Bake at 350. It’s been my go-to recipe lately. I love hers because nothing has to be set out to room temperature. And her dough doesn’t need to be chilled before rolling either. Equals Awesome! I hate waiting. So I love this recipe. When the dough comes together it will be crumbly, but don’t worry. Just grab it and knead it a bit and it’s ready to roll and cut. And it lifts beautifully, too.

Here’s Bridget’s recipe for sugar cookies and royal icing on some peppermint cookies I made a few weeks ago. And here is the recipe on her site.

But even better, Bridget has a Cookie Decorating book out. And I’m giving one away at the end of this post. YAY!

Decorating Cookies

Actually, I’m giving away a signed copy of her book, Decorating Cookies. Easy to understand instructions with tons of adorable cookie decorating ideas. You’ll love it.

Skip on down to the bottom if you want to enter. Wheee!

Or if you want to see how I made my cookies stand, then keep on reading. These aren’t in Bridget’s book… I was just inspired by her cookie creations and love for decorating and wanted to share it with you since I love using her recipe.

Hope you like them Bridget! P.S. I need a piping boot camp. I don’t know how you do it.

Rolling Pin

Roll your cookie dough out nice and flat. I used these rubber dough bands to make sure the thickness was even when I rolled.

Cookie Dough

Then cut out circles in graduating sizes. I used 3-7/8, 3, 2-5/8 and 2-1/4 inch sizes.

Cookie Dough

Before you bake, use a plastic drinking straw to remove the centers of each cookie. The straw collects the dough in the center. Convenient.

Freeze the cut shapes for about 10 minutes to help the dough avoid spreading and then bake.

And when they come out of the oven, use the straw again to make sure the holes stay the same size.


Use the dough scraps and tiny cutters to cut out shapes for your desserts to go on display.

A piping tip like the one on the right will make circles with rounded tops since the tip is cone-shaped.

Makes great mini macarons or whoopie pies. Just tap the tip on the counter to release the dough.

Cookie Dough Shapes

Lots of little shapes.

Cookie Cutters

Assorted shapes – around 1 inch wide.

Tiny alphabet cutters. XOXO

Graduated ovals – plain on one side and crinkled on the other.

And my favorite – I can’t live without – graduated circle cutters that I used to make the stands.

Graduated Cookie Shapes

You’ll want to use four different sizes to make the 3-tier stands.

Note: For the chocolate cookies, I swapped out 1/2 flour for 1/2 cup cocoa and used all vanilla extract in Bridget’s recipe.


After they are baked and cooled, and then comes the piping. This always goes smoother in my head than when I actually start piping.

Pipe first with outline icing and then fill with flood icing.

However for these I ended up using a royal icing consistency somewhere in between and piped and filled with the same consistency.


Ugh – wonky lines. Not what I’d hoped.

So after I filled and before the icing set completely, I piped dots all the way around. Camouflage it.

Much better.

Let cookies dry overnight. And after all the cookie decorating save leftover royal icing in an airtight container or in the piping bag with the ends tied off and cap closed for finishing up the project the next day.

Now comes the fun part.


Ice the cakes and decorate!

Easy details for major impact.

Luster Dust

Oh and those macarons, try painting them with a little luster dust.

Just mix some of the powder with a small amount of clear extract and you can paint right on the cookies.


Play food

Pretty dang cute!

Cookie Dessert Stands

And even cuter on display.

These were surprisingly easy to make stand up.

Cookie Sticks

Start with using cookie sticks for the support. These are bigger than the lollipop sticks I usually use for cake pops (lower right).

The sticks should be about 6 inches tall for the stands. Buy the 6 inch sticks or cut down the 8 inch.

Use a cookie stick to gently twist through each cookie opening to make sure it goes through before building.

And make sure your cookie icing is completely dry and set from the day before.


Sugar Cookie Stands

  1. Start with the smallest cookie shape. It should not be iced. Place on a flat surface and then insert the cookie stick. Slide the largest iced cookie on top. Having two cookies on the bottom will give you more support and keep the stick straight.
  2. Cut striped straws into 1 1/2 inch sections. Slide one straw piece over the stick and push to the bottom as a spacer/ledge.
  3. Slide second largest iced cookie on stick until it stops at the straw. Then slide another straw piece on top.
  4. Slide last cookie on top until it stops at the straw. Then slide one more straw piece on the very top. Wrap a piece of washi tape around the straw and cut out a triangle for a cute flag topper.
  5. Note: Not shown. Use the leftover royal icing to pipe in between the two bottom cookies and pipe dots around the centers of each tier to help secure the cookies in place as you build. Attach the desserts to the tiers with royal icing too. Then let dry and don’t move for a few hours. I skipped this step because I wanted to get right to taking pictures.

Sugar Cookie Dessert Stands

There you have it four cookies for 3-tier stands. Bridget’s recipe will make four stands with enough cookies to decorate.

And these can be totally scaled back? Two tiers? Just a cookie plate? Just the tiny cookies? Only one cookie shape? Choose how you want to play.

Cookie Stands

They’d be super fun and totally stand out for Valentine’s Day, for a dessert party or even party favors.

Then off we went to visit 7 week old Maine Coon kittens, 9 of them from the Reindeer liter (yes all named Reindeer names) and played with them for an hour plus; and went to a Pasta shop for dinner. Sunday we cleaned the house (had to be done) had friends over for the afternoon, I made Cinnamon Crumb cake for a coffe date on Monday, which came out the best ever!

  155. I made a bacon cheeseburger and French fries 3D cake for my son’s birthday celebration. It was really fun and he loved it! My new obsession is cookie decorating…added to my current ones of cake pops and cake decorating :) Thanks for the super cute inspiration.

  156. so smart and also beautiful!!!!

  157. These are fantastic!! I baked some cookies with my 3 sons this weekend. Super fun!

  158. I finished up cutting out doilies for student Valentine bags, straightened up my craft room, and started making treat bags and banners for an upcoming b’day party. Too cold to go anywhere.

  159. I stayed home and planned out my cakes for this week!

  160. I went to a soup and chili supper at my church, and I also went to the mall. It was cool ; )

  161. Sadly, I didn’t bake. I watched a few episodes of Warehouse 13 though, but I was so busy!!

  162. These are adorable!! This weekend, I was lucky enough to spend Saturday with my husband (a rare thing lately!) – we went to Ikea (heaven!), ate BBQ, and lounged around. Sunday I decorated for Valentine’s Day and bought supplies to start baking! :)

  163. My back went out so it was a weekend of muscle relaxers for me. :-(

  164. These are adorable!!! This weekend I had an awesome date night with all 3 of my favorite fella’s…my hubby, my 3 yr old little boy and my daddy. Our date night was watching Monster Trucks!! We all had a blast!!! After the show we drove to a park downtown and enjoyed a beautiful view of a local river from a suspended bridge. I was totally grateful for this time with my family.

  165. Weekends are usually reserved for cleaning in my house. But this weekend hubby surprised me with a night in the town!

  166. Such adorable cookies! I had 2 birthday cakes due Saturday then spent time with family Sunday. Good weekend but went by way too fast!

  167. this weekend i caught up with my DVR

  168. We had a national cheer competition saturday and sunday!

  169. I went to Charleston, Soutg Carolina to visit my family. Those little cookies are just to cute!

  170. Went to the wedding of my daughter’s best friend since second grade. Lovely!

  171. Wow I love this post … Defenetly gona try it !
    This weekend I made two hello kitty cakes :)

  172. I absolutely love these cookies, I always use my moms sugar cookie recipe but like you, hate waiting for the dough to get cold. I will be trying this one.
    This weekend my son and his family came over Saturday morning with all the breakfast fixings and made me breakfast. Then stayed the night and I did the breakfast Sunday. Very enjoyable family time.

  173. I’ve been ‘in bed’ sick for almost a month. Missed all of Christmas and most of January with back-to-back illnesses, SO, I spent the weekend starting to excavate my house! It will probably take me almost a month to get caught up with laundry, ironing, cleaning, etc…and then there’s the mountain of mail to go through…yikes. I’m feeling so much better now…but the work ahead in restoring ‘normal’ to my home almost makes me want to go straight back to bed! :O On a happier note, your creativity and artistry never fails to delight and amaze me. Your tiny cookies and cookie stands are brilliant and lovely! Bravo!!!

  174. I worked on my taxes and went estate sale shopping,

  175. These are adorable! This weekend I stayed home a lot and baked things to give away. My favorite activity!

  176. I spent my weekend on a sunny beach! Lovely cookies!

  177. I went shopping for some craft supplies and then my parents and I went to see the play my sister designed costumes for (she’s a theatre technology major in college). Then yesterday I crocheted a hat.

  178. I went to Missouri and to a huge outlet mall shopping!

  179. I read a book, baked a cake and started potty training my two year old :)

  180. Cute cookies! I helped my daughter and her friends prepare 100 meals for guests at the Ronald McDonald House. Great fun!

  181. Awesome! I saw a friend I’ve been missing and got some under cabinet lighting for my baking area.

  182. Spent weekend with kids

  183. The cookie cookie stands are too cute! My nephew is in the military & is coming home this month! I’ll have to make these for his party!

    This weekend we were @ the “First Lego League” Robotics state meet with my 11 year old who competed in her first year of robotics this year with her 5th grade team mates!!!! Lots of fun & great learning experience for the kiddos!!

  184. These are absolutely adorable!! We spent the weekend snuggled up on the couch and had a Disney princess movie marathon with our three girls.

  185. I had my partner round for the first time in a while, and we baked chocolate and jam filled chocolate cupcakes, and ate them all in one evening. Oops. Then we made toffee ice cream bread and had that with bananas and cream.

  186. These are amazing!!!! I just said this weekend I wanted to learn to do sugar cookies and learn to decorate like a pro. Here’s my chance :-). I helped with an EPIC baby shower…ROCK a bye baby for some friends. Then worked on fundraising ideas for Relay for Life and for a dear friend who just had an organ transplant :-) AND surfed the web for American Girl ideas for my daughter and myself (ps these would be AMAZING for an AG party ;-) )

  187. Basket Bingo for the kids’ school & birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese’s. WooHoo!

  188. These cookies are adorable!!!! Love love love them! This weekend I made a Dora cake for my 2 year old granddaughter. Her family (my son, his wife, and new baby sister in March) are missionaries in Africa and are home on furlough. I didn’t get to make her 1st birthday cake and was thrilled to be able to make this one! I’d love to have this book to make more cookies for her and my other two grandkids! Pick me, pick me, pick me!!!!! ;)

  189. I kept my youngest granddaughter (6mo.) while her parents went on a getaway trip. AND I cut out my first quilt attempt!

    I use Bridget’s sugar cookie recipe. I haven’t gotten the knack of the icing yet, but I’m working on it! Thanks.

  190. Love your cookies!

    This weekend was all about work, so now I’m free to play with my baby girl :)

  191. I tried my hand at some Greek Yogurt Dinner Rolls and planned out my cupcake menu for a big reception at our church!

  192. I baked, of course!

  193. So cute and can’t wait to try! This weekend I unpacked and put away my kitchen contents into to newly installed cabinets. Now I just need counters and my ovens. Been without my kitchen since we were flooded by Sandy and CANNOT wait to bake again…. Hoping to be able to bake by Valentines day!

  194. I finished reading JK Rowlings new book so I could return it to the library before my flight to Dallas, TX. Sunday got to get together with an old friend that I don’t get to see enough. Still here in TX for 3 more days for work.

  195. Did absolutely nothing this weekend….down with the flu! But these pics are making me sooooo want to try this out! So stinking CUTE!!

  197. Had a long weekend, thanks to sleet and ice on Friday! Did some cooking with my boys!

  198. It was Australia Day on Saturday the 26th. I made Australian themed Whoppie pies. Vanilla whoopie pies with buttercream icing. I then poured green icing over the top and made yellow kangaroos for decoration! Very Australian!! So cute!
    They were a massive hit!

  199. I just spent the weekend relaxing with my hubby. We only see each other on weekends due to jobs in different states, so we do this most weekends. :)
