Ever since I was little, I loved Wonder Woman — she’s strong and smart! A few years ago, I made a Lego Batman video with all these superheroes, but she was left out! So for some nostalgia (and perfect Americana around Thanksgiving) I decided to make Wonder Woman in delicious cookie form.

Ready to make your own? Here’s a brief overview of the process.

You can use this transfer method on anything, including cake, cookies and sugar paste! And don’t worry – pencils are not toxic!

Note: See the video for more detailed instruction and the full list of supplies and equipment needed.

Step 1:

I start by getting my design the correct size and trace on parchment paper with a pencil. (I like mechanical pencils!)

Step 2:

Next, I flip the tracing over and rub the design onto the iced cookie.

Note: The cookie dried for at least 12 hours and pencil side down.

Step 3:

Fill in flesh areas with royal icing.

Step 4:

Then red.

Step 5:

Add the blue fondant hot pants.

Step 6:

Add gold painted and white details.

Step 7:

Add red star and black hair.
