So a few weeks ago I made my Pokemon cake and shared it with the Working With Lemon’s kids on their YouTube channel! While I was there I also taught them how to make these fun decorated Pokemon sugar cookies! I went with some of the most common Pokemon but these same techniques can be used to create your favorite Pokemon as well! Say hello to Pikachu, Squirtle and Charmander!
Pikachu – the MOST popular Pokemon – and somewhat elusive to catch (so I’ve heard, I haven’t seen one when the kids and I have played)
Charmander – one of the first you can catch, he’s pretty simple to make – the only trick is added the teeth while the royal icing mouth is still wet so you can pull his teeth to a point
Squirtle – could a Pokemon be cuter? The hardest part of the Squirtle is to get the point to his beak, the top of his mouth. But take your time and you’ll be fine!
AND finally – here is the “Working With Lemons” collaboration I got to do! Teaching the kids to make these cookies as a guest on their LemonReds weekly talk show! Super fun (esp when I share the cake I made them as a surprise)
I hope you guys enjoy these fun cookies (and the videos) as much as my kids did! So who else plays?
Pokemon Cookies - pikachu, charmander and squirtle
- 6 1/2 C all-purpose flour
- 2 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. salt
- 2 tsp. nutmeg
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 C Butter
- 2 C granulated sugar
- 2 egg
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- 1 C full fat sour cream
- 4 C powdered sugar
- 1/4 C whole milk
- 2 Tbsp butter
- 2 Tbsp light corn syrup
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp extract peppermint or almond
- Food coloring optional
- Preheat oven to 350
- Sift flour, soda, salt, nutmeg and powder in a bowl.
- In separate bowl cream the butter and sugar (use cookie paddles or dough hook this will get thick)
- Add the egg and beat again
- then add the vanilla and sour cream and beat it smooth
- Mix in dry ingredients and beat smooth - it will be thick.
- wrap up in wax paper or parchment paper and chill in fridge for 3-4 hours
- preheat oven to 350
- roll out to 1/4 inch and cut 2 1/2 inch circles
- bake for 8-10 mins, until the edges get a slight golden color to them (don't over bake) let cool
- Mix butter, powdered sugar, milk, vanilla and peppermint in your mixer.
- it will be thick at first - great for spreading
- thin with milk to get a "toothpaste" thickness good for piping - great for outlining cookies
- thin more to create a icing you can fill in "color flow' style for a smooth finish. The perfect thinness is when stop stirring the icing and count to 10 it gets smooth.
- you'll need a few colors for this - depending on which cookies your making - the outlines and detailed piping in the faces should be thicker icing, the face itself, and filler colors in the mouths, cheeks and eyes should be thinner
