How to pipe professional looking sunflowers, turning storebought sugar cookies into beautiful baked creations.

If you’ve ever spent an hour, scrolling through Instagram, getting glazed eyes on the frosting and cake decorating channels, we are soul buddies. Because, we foodies happen to find ourselves doing the same thing, far more often than we dare admit.

Because, frosting. And icing. When done right, it’s just so dang pretty.

Which is why we decided to make it easier than ever to do it right. Introducing, the OodleTip. A one-piece icing bag, ready-fit with a plastic tip, which can be easily snipped into different shapes, making piping like a pro as easy as one-two-OodleTip.

Using a big batch of our Best Ever Buttercream, check out how quickly we turned storebought sugar cookies into a bright batch of beautifully decorated sunflowers. 

Fun Flavor Twists

We used storebought cookies, but here are a few other places this icing technique would look (at taste) great:

  • Oreo Cookies. Pipe teeny sunflower cookies atop chocolate or vanilla creme cookies.
  • Make Your Own Cake. Buy an angel food cake, and cover the top with a few big frosting sunflowers. Or decorate the whole thing with stunning little sunflowers. 
  • Sweet Suckers. Decorate homemade chocolate or candy suckers with sunflowers for an adorable party favor. Use royal icing, instead of buttercream, for best results.
