My baby turned two last month and we had the cutest pastel Toy Story birthday party for her. To elevate the cuteness of the party, I baked and decorated Toy Story cookies for her and the guests.

I went with a “Two Story” theme as opposed to the popular “Two Infinity and Beyond” birthday party theme. The pastel cookies would fit both themes well though. Of course, you’d want to skip the Two Story cookie.

The Toy Story cookies features Jessie’s outfit: her boots, the red hat, the yellow shirt with the red squiggle, and the cow print.

I also made some funfetti cupcakes (just from the box!) with some cream cheese frosting. I like to give the guests options on cupcakes or cookies, or both of course!

Part 1: Gathering the Supplies for the Toy Story Cookies

How to Decorate Pastel Toy Story Cookies with Buttercream

To decorate these cute Toy Story sugar cookies, you will want to gather:

Part 2: Baking the Cookies and Setting up the Icing Bags

  1. Roll, cut out, and bake your sugar cookies according to the recipe. I made 6 circles (4 will be cow print and 2 will be the Two Story print), 4 hats, 4 boots, and 2 number two cookies. I always make more of the easy designs and less of the more complicated designs.
  2. Make your buttercream icing and separate it into six bowls:
    • One bowl will contain about a quarter cup of the frosting; dye this bowl light yellow
    • Another bowl will contain another quarter of a cup of frosting; dye this bowl light blue (mix in just a touch of black to make it a cornflower blue shade if preferred)
    • Divvy up the remaining buttercream into four equal amounts: color one black, one rust red (red with just a bit of brown), one brown, and keep one undyed/white
  3. Set up your icing bags as follows:
    • Place a coupler into each of the icing bags and add the frosting to the bags. You do not need to add the decorating tips yet. Remember, only add about a cup of frosting into the icing bags at a time. Keep the remaining icing covered in plastic wrap until you are ready to add more to the bags.

Aren’t these just the cutest Toy Story cookies? I love the pastel Toy Story birthday party trend that’s been happening lately.

Of course, if you want to go the traditional, primary color Toy Story theme, just swap the shades of buttercream for their brighter, more saturated colors. Your cookies will look amazing!

If you want to make the cupcakes like I did for my daughter’s party, you’ll find them to be very similar to the cookies. I made a cream cheese frosting, dyed some of it yellow, some rust red, some black, and left some undyed.

I just used the palette knife to spread the frosting onto the cupcakes and then used the piping tips to pipe Jessie’s shirt pattern and pant pattern onto the cookies. So easy and so complimentary to the Toy Story cookies.

I’d love to know in the comments below, have you done a Toy Story party? Do you have one coming up?
