Periodic LOVE

Valentine's day cookie ideas, Love for science, Chemistry cookies, elements cookies

When I was in High School I felt in love with chemistry

and the periodic table of elements was one of my favorite things, I was fascinated with it, and always wondering how awesome was that everything was made out of the perfect combination of elements.

I think love and chemistry are so related and as you may know if there is chemistry between two persons everything will go smoothly...

I love to make out words and write messages using symbols, so I made these cookies inspired on my chemistry classes.

These cookies are super easy to do and if you are a beginner these cookies are just for you. 


*  Foolproof cookie recipe, click HERE
*  1 in square cookie cutter
*  Medium firm black royal icing
*  Flooding royal icing for video and recipe  click here
*  Assorted Americolor food colors
*  Edible markers
*  Piping bag set with decorating tip #1.5


1.-  Cut out several square cookies and bake them at 350°F for 10 minutes  ( remember that smaller cookies will bake faster, so don't forget to look in the oven ) Let them cool. 

2.-  I looked online for a periodic table, and choose  this one.

  I love how colorful it is!!  Then I started looking for the symbols that I want for my messages and tinted flooding icing in fuchsia, light pink, red, gold, yellow, electric green, green, light blue, darker blue and purple.

Here is the video for the Royal Icing Recipe 

Then I filled out my piping bag with the black icing and set it aside in a sealed container.

3.- Flood the square cookies and let them dry completely. 

4.-  Outline the border of the cookie with black icing and let it dry.  Using a black marker write down the symbol, the name and the atomic number. 

What lovely phrases can you made up with these symbols?

Let them dry.

 I love them and I hope you love them too!!!
