XO And Diamond Ring Sugar Cookies With Royal Icing

After my Fiesta Sugar Cookie post for Cinco de Mayo, I decided that every holiday and celebration needs its own easy and festive sugar cookie guide.

These cookies are so cute and only take a few hours to prepare! I baked the cookies a couple of days in advance and stored them in an air-tight container in the fridge until I had a couple of hours to frost them.

If you only want to make enough cookies for this tray, I recommend making a half batch of sugar cookies.

The individual post for these cookies is coming soon!

Rose Sugar Cookies With Buttercream Frosting

Don’t let these rose sugar cookies intimidate you!

What You Need

  1. Round sugar cookies: I used dough leftover from the XO and Diamond Ring sugar cookies. If you don’t have a round cookie cutter, you could always use the top of a drinking glass.
  2. Buttercream frosting: any recipe will work! I used the buttercream frosting from my Brownie Birthday Cake recipe.
  3. Red for coloring gel: AmeriColor is easily my favorite brand. You can buy Red Gel or the Student Kit. I recommend the kit.
  4. Piping bag: I recommend these piping bags. In a pinch, you could use a large ziplock bag.
  5. Piping tip: This Wilton Star Tip (#1M) is magic! 


  1. Add a couple of drops of red food coloring gel to the buttercream frosting and mix thoroughly.
  2. Slowly add more red gel until you have reached your desired red or pink color.
  3. Transfer the red buttercream frosting to a piping bag with a Wilton star tip.
  4. Secure the end of the piping bag with a rubber band or twist tie.
  5. Hold the cookie in your non-dominant hand and the frosting in your dominant hand.
  6. Position the piping tip at the center of the cookie.
  7. Apply consistent pressure on the piping bag to release the frosting.
  8. Pipe the cookie using a spiral motion.

White Chocolate-Covered Pretzels

These white-chocolate-covered pretzels rods look so elegant on this tray! All you need to make them are pretzel rods, white chocolate, and Wilton sugar pearls.


  1. Melt the white chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl according to package instructions.
  2. Individually dip the pretzel rods into the melted chocolate.
  3. Lightly tap the pretzel on the edge of the bowl to remove excess chocolate.
  4. Place the pretzel on parchment paper.
  5. Add sugar pearls before the chocolate hardens.

Frosted Brownie Bites

These easy frosted brownie bites are definitely engagement-dessert-board-worthy. I used Ghiradelli brownie mix, this mini cupcake pan, store-bought vanilla frosting, and gold sprinkles from this sprinkle mix.


  1. Grease the mini cupcake pan with shortening. Set aside.
  2. Prepare the brownie mix according to package instructions.
  3. Distribute the mix across the 24 cupcake cavities.
  4. Bake the brownies at 325 degrees for 21 minutes.
  5. Let brownies cool completely before removing them from the pan.
  6. Frost the brownies and add sprinkles.

Rose Chocolates

This was my first time using this Wilton rose silicone candy mold, and it definitely won’t be my last. It was so easy and the rose chocolates came out perfectly. I used these Wilton red candy melts. There are instructions on the back of the rose mold packaging, but I recommend a different approach:


  1. Place three pieces of chocolate in each rose cavity.
  2. Microwave the chocolate for 30 seconds at 50% power.
  3. Mix the chocolate and add two or three more pieces to each rose cavity.
  4. Microwave the chocolate again, for 30 seconds at 50% power.
  5. Mix the chocolate, and microwave it again (same time and power).
  6. Repeat step 5 until your chocolate is completely melted, being careful not to overheat the chocolate.
  7. Use a toothpick to swirl the chocolate around in the mold to ensure no there are no air bubbles.
  8. Lightly tap the mold on the counter to help remove any air bubbles.
  9. Refrigerate the mold until chocolate hardens.
  10. Remove chocolate from the fridge and then from the mold.

How To Make An Engagement Party Dessert Board

Now that we’ve covered what’s on this board, it’s time to talk about how to tackle making all the desserts and assembling the board. Here’s what I recommend:

  1. Prepare the sugar cookie dough.
  2. Bake the sugar cookies.
  3. Frost the xo and diamond ring sugar cookies.
  4. Make the white-chocolate-covered pretzels.
  5. Make the rose chocolates.
  6. Frost the rose sugar cookies.
  7. Bake and frost the brownies.
  8. Assemble the tray.

I completed about one step each day since I couldn’t commit an entire day to bake all of these desserts and it made the whole process so much easier.
