The Little Mermaid Disney Inspired Starfish Cookies
Today on the blog I am sharing how to create Disney Inspired “The Little Mermaid” Starfish Cookies. This is a fun and quick tutorial on decorating cookies and I hope you enjoy.
We really do love The Little Mermaid. I remember how excited Sylvia was when we met Ariel at Disneyland in Paris a few years ago. It was a fantastic experience. The Little Mermaid is a fantastic movie. I love the songs the music and this would make a great party theme for a child’s birthday.

-Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture.

-Make the dough into a ball, wrap it in cling wrap completely covering the entire dough ball.
-Put in the refrigerator for about 6 hours or overnight. Check to see if the dough is firm.
-Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
-Pull the cookie dough out of the refrigerator and sit it out to soften up a bit.
– Put flour out on the cutting board, rub flour on the rolling pin, and work some flour into
the batter. (if needed).
-Roll the dough out on the cutting board and using the cookie cutter begin to make your cookies.
-Line the cookie sheet with parchment paper.
-Using a metal spatula move the cut cookies to the parchment lined cookie-sheet.
-Bake at 325 degrees for 8 minutes. Check to see if the cookies are thoroughly baked.
-Take the cookies off of the cookie sheet and put on a wire rack to cool completely.
(About 10 minutes).
Once the cookies have cooled you can do the fun part, the icing.
2 egg whites
1 C powder sugar
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp vanilla
sky blue, purple, green and pink gel colours
5 piping bags with a number 2 tip
4 squeeze bottles
5 bowls to mix colours in Icing
Directions:-Combine all ingredients except the colours into a standing mixing bowl.
-Mix on medium speed onto stiff peaks form
-Divide the icing into the 5 bowls
-Add a color into 4 bowls, leaving the 5th one white, and mix them until they are the shades you want
-Scoop some of the color into the piping bags.
-add a 2 tsp of water to the colored icings to thin it out
-pour into squeeze bottles
Outline a few starfish in the pink icing
Fill in with the thinner pink icing
let dry for 1 hour
Using the white icing, add a big dot in the centre and small dots going down each ‘arm’
Using the pink icing in the piping bag, cover the face of the star with little pink dots
Let dry for 3 hours before enjoying
The end result is really fantastic and I think these would make a fantastic treat for a mermaid or under the sea themed party.

These are beautiful! My girls love helping out in the kitchen and these would be so much fun to make together.
I always wondered how people managed to ice biscuits without the icing pouring all over the place – now I know you have to do an outline first! Learn something new every day 🙂 x
great point. Using an outline does help!
