I mean guys, how cute are these little girlies with their sprinkle hair? They were inspired by one of my sweet friends Erin Bakes, who makes adorable cakes. She made some sprinkle hair cakes for Valentine’s Day and I KNEW they needed to be cookified ASAP, sprinkle hair girl cookies needed to be a thing. For the two cookie cutters I designed and printed my own cutters with my Silhouette Alta, (learn more about that here) but there are many cookie cutters out there that you could use to make this design. Think Mickey Mouse, bears, lady bugs and so on. You can even use the FREE projector template below to add details to your sprinkle hair girl cookies with ease.

Step 1: First, use the projector template (or print and cut) to trace out the hair lines on the cookie with and edible marker. 

Step 2: Using the skin tone icing, outline and flood the face of the sprinkle girls. Drop two dots of light pink for the cheeks and then IF your *not* making heart sunnies drop the sugar pearls in for the eyes. I like to use tweezers to place them quickly. Place the cookies under a fan to crust over and prevent bleeding.

Step 3: Next outline and flood the hair using any color your like. You want to make sure you don’t over flow the hair here and the sprinkles will take up volume. Too much icing + too much sprinkles will cause the icing to flood over the side of the cookie.

Step 4: Once the the hair has crusted over a bit you can move on to all the details. Using the projector templates above really help to make this part smooth, particularly for the heart sunnies. You can either pipe on the sunnies using the projector or trace the shape first with a marker then pipe, however your comfortable. Start with the pink sunnies using dark pink outline (tip PME #1) + flood icing. Drop a little white or light pink into the heart and drag it with your scribe a bit to create a little reflection. Next you can add the nose and ears with your skin tone icing, add sprinkle earrings if you would like! Then finish up with a little mouth + eye browns (tip PME #1 for both).

Now you have your own little sprinkle hair girl cookies, and be part of the cool kids. But be warned, you’re going to want to sprinkle hair EVERYTHING. Don’t say I didn’t warn you…
