GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 is in theaters May 5th!
I was bummed when I was invited to the press junket for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 and I was not able to attend. We watched the movie (review coming soon) and we are so thrilled about the movie coming up that my son and I decided to bake some cookies. Our inspiration? Ego, the living planet.
You can read all about the press junket on my friend’s blog Dangerous Cupcake Lifestyle
Without giving any spoilers, I can tell you that Ego is a sentient planet (played by Kurt Russel). We were fascinated by the planet's look. We loved it so much that it inspired the icing for our cookies.
So how do do make the icing to look like Ego the Living Planet? Easy, I used sparkling gel icing combined with regular icing to give the cookies that cool Guardian of the Galaxy look.
This is what you need (you can order the items from my amazon affiliated link if you want to support our future baking adventures)
The first step is to mix the colors of the icing. We used a toothpick to mix the colors so you can still see the colors on the mix
Once the mix is ready dip the top of you cookies on it. You can use your own cookie recipe or store bought cookies.
Let the icing on the cookies dry for at least 30 minutes so it is not messy when you eat them. Voila! Your cookies are ready it is as simple as that.
