How to Make Blurryface Birthday Cookies

This weekend one of Miss Chicago teen’s best friends celebrated her birthday. They are both huge Twenty One Pilots fans so Miss C.T. decided to bake her a special birthday treat.

She recreated the Blurryface album cover.

The detail she managed to get on these birthday cookies was amazing check out the actual album cover

If you have patience and a steady hand you can make them too!

What you will need

  • 9 sugar cookies – home made are best!
  • White fondant
  • Red gel food coloring
  • Black gel food coloring
  • Fine new paint brushes
  • Print out of the Blurry Face Album cover …try looking here

Start by taking a portion of your white fondant and coloring it red. The best way to do this is to put both fondant and a few dabs of color in a sandwich bag and work it all in by squishing it around. This saves you getting red hands!

Roll out both your white and red fondant and use a cookie cutter to cut out circles in a size that will fit nicely on your cookies. Then using your black gel food coloring start painting in the designs.

Display them on a simple black napkin and do a pit of piping with butter icing to complete.

  1. Thank you for this amazing inspiration! We took this and altered it to work for us for my son’s 16th Birthday cake. We used black buttercream frosting on a chocolate cake and made the homemade cookies. We opted for royal icing instead of fondant and used wooden skewers to make the decorations on cookies. My two teenagers did all the decorating. Turned out not to shabby! Btw… no professional or home baker would even bother making this for me. They all saw the detail in the cookies and freaked out!! So we made it ourselves:) My son received TwentyOne Pilots concert tickets for his 16th, so this idea was perfection!! Thanks so much!

    1. Hi Amanda, So glad this worked out for you, what a great idea for a cake! I would love to see a photo if you have one
