Transform Your Cookies with the Stroke of an Airbrush: Effortless Decorating for Eye-Catching Treats!

Last week, I had the pleasure of sharing my knowledge on airbrushing with stencils, and without, during a live tutorial. Using Easter egg cookies as our canvas, we explored various techniques that can add a pop of color and creativity to your cookie decorating endeavors. The best part? These airbrushing techniques aren't just limited to Easter, but can be utilized for any occasion throughout the year.


Airbrushing is a powerful tool that can save you time while adding an undeniable WOW factor to your cookie creations. With an airbrush system, you can create intricate designs and gradients that would be difficult to achieve by hand, making it an invaluable investment for any baker or decorator. If you're on the fence about purchasing one, I urge you to take the plunge - I guarantee it'll be worth it!


So, if you're looking for inspiration or want to learn more about how to use an airbrush system, grab yourself a cup of coffee and a cookie and watch my tutorial. You'll be amazed at how quickly and easily you can transform your cookies into works of art.

The first airbrush technique i demonstrate is how to make a monochromatic cookie without having to use multiple color options.

 Step one is to stencil your cookie with your airbrush as your normally would. A simple pattern works best with this technique. For these Easter eggs, a vintage ric rac pattern was perfect.

Step 2 is even easier! 

Now you just need to remove the stencil, and using the same airbrush color, spray a light layer over the entire cookie. This style has a few benefits. First, it hides any over/under spray you may gotten while stenciling. Second, it gives you the effect of using 2 different colors (in this example, pink), but you are only using the one. AND as with all of these cookies. you are starting with a white flooded base. This is a huge time save!

In the next part of the video I show you how to use one stencil, twice, with 2 colors to get a multicolor stripe effect. I start by airbrushing my stripes as I normally would. Remember to aim straight down at your stencil to create crisp lines.  Then allow your airbrush to dry for a couple minutes.

The second step in this process is to simply place the same stripe stencil back on the cookie BUT cover the pink stripes with the stencil. Thus exposing only the white parts. Then I switch colors to orange and stencil again. This style would also work well with a chevron pattern stencil.  Or different sizes of stripes.

I love this technique because the result is a very colorful cookie - but without having to mix any additional icing colors! And without having to pipe stripes - because we all know how fun that is! ;) And once again, we are using a white flooded cookie. Not having to mix and bag different colors to flood different colors makes the process so much quicker!

This technique can be used anytime of year, with any theme. Think red and green for Christmas. Orange and black for Halloween. The possibilities are endless
