Mosaic Cross Cookies

Today we’re making mosaic cross cookies. When I purchased this cross cutter from Hobby Lobby I couldn’t wait to use it. It is substantial in size and has beautiful decorative edges. I was inspired to make these crosses after seeing a mosaic cross my friend had purchased for her daughter. Since spring starts tomorrow and Easter is right around the corner I chose spring colors to decorate them. Are you ready for a tutorial? Let’s get started.

What you need:

  • white piping consistency icing (I used a Wilton #4 tip but this will vary depending on the size of your cookie)
  • 20 second icing in the colors of your choice (I used light pink, light yellow, light green, light blue and light purple)
Begin by outlining your cookie. I used a Wilton #4 tip to make thick lines that would resemble grout. If you are decorating a smaller cookie choose whatever tip you feel will give you this “grout” look. I first started with a #3 tip but it wasn’t giving me the look I was going for.
Next, pipe random lines on the cookie to give the look of mosaic tiles. Use a boo-boo stick or toothpick to tap down any peaks or imperfections.
Let the outline dry for several minutes before flooding. I let mine dry for about 15-20 minutes. Depending on how many cookies you are making the first cookie should be ready to flood as soon as you finish piping your last cookie.
Flood sections of the cookie that are not touching. This will allow your cookie to have more visible “grout” lines.
I let the flooded sections dry for about 20-30 minutes before flooding the next sections.
Depending on the size of your cookie and the number of sections you made you will flood in several phases. Let each phase dry for at least 20-30 minutes and repeat until you have flooded all the sections.
Let the cookies dry completely overnight. This is what the final cookie will look like. As you can see if a thinner line was made even less of the “grout” lines would be showing.
FYI…my husband came to the computer to see what I was working on and he said “oh stained glass cookies, those are nice”. My head just hit my forehead. Do they look like stained glass? I guess they could be either but stained glass is see through. Thanks babe. I’ll probably be thinking about this for days. LOL!
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial on mosaic cross cookies. Have a great week everyone. Happy Spring!!!

  1. I love them! Thank you so much for sharing! They are beautiful mosaics! ;^)

  2. I love your nails! And you should give your husband some credit! They do kind of look like stained glass in church windows, and I’m sure it was a HUGE compliment! :-)
    Oh, I do like the cookies, too! :-)))

    • Thanks! I’m so glad you like the cookies. Yes my husband is awesome. We just like to tease each other. He has actually helped me come up with a lot of great ideas. I had never thought of stained glass until he said it so these cookies are actually like two for one.

      Glad you like the nails. It was my first time trying out Sally Hansen Salon Effects & I must have done something wrong because after a couple of hours some were chipping. I like the idea of them so I’m gonna try them again.

  3. Adorable Melissa! Love the colors:)

  4. Unbelievable! I love this! I have a confirmation coming up and these would be perfect! Oh, I adore you nails!

  5. Ha!!! I saw stained glass too! But I love em!

  8. Nice blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really
    make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your theme.
    Thanks
