Inside Out Character Cookie: Bing Bong

Bing bong cookie

This is the last of our Inside Out Character Cookie series. Bing Bong is my favorite character! For the stencil I made, comment below if you’re interested in purchasing!

Start by making the shortbread cookie dough.

Allow the dough to chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Roll out the chilled dough to about ¼ inch thickness and trace the outline of the cookie stencil and cut the excess off.

Bake for 14-17 minutes at 325F. Allow cookies to cool completely.

While they’re cooling, make the royal icing or use your favorite ready-made royal icing.

For the colors, you’ll need to mix 7 icing colors:

  • dark pink
  • light pink
  • dark fuchsia
  • dark brown
  • dark green
  • black
  • white

For icing colors, I recommend using AmeriColor gel for the best color performance. I’ve tried some natural food coloring, but the image really suffers and it’s also harder to get the icing consistency just right.

Note on icing consistency: It’s super important to achieve the correct consistency. You want to water down the icing such that it will become smooth within 10 seconds after slicing it with a butter knife. Be careful of how much water you use; it’s a surprisingly narrow range. If it becomes too watered down, you can always add more undiluted royal icing.

Once the cookies are completely cool, you can start icing. Trace the stencil with a food safe marker.

Quick tip on piping bags! I recommend professional pastry bags with piping tips, but with so many colors to pipe, you can quickly use up bags and tips. I’ve found that regular sandwich/snack bags work fine once you get use to it. Just snip the corner and start icing! :)

Ice the cookie in the following order. Check out our Bing Bong cookie icing video!

Allow the cookie to fully dry, at least 4 hours before eating. I like to allow it to dry overnight and serve it the next day.

I hope you enjoyed this post. Don’t forget to check out the video! Feel free to leave comments or questions below.

It’s Tasty Time!
