Today we are making these adorable starfish cookies! They are perfect for a mermaid party…
The final season of Game of Thrones will be out soon! And although the show is in no way child-friendly, my husband and I enjoy watching it after our littles go to sleep.
With such an occasion, of course we had to make some fun Game of Thrones themed treats.
Today we decided to make cookies based of the first book’s title, “A Song of Ice and Fire.”
So we created “A cookie of Ice and Fire.”
We even added a little step by step tutorial in case you wanted to make your own version of these cookies. Maybe a season premiere party?

Game of Thrones Cookie
For this tutorial, we are only going to show the decorating aspect of making these cookies. We even cheated and used store-bought cookie dough.
Of course, using your own favorite recipe of sugar cookies would work great, and probably taste even better!
- Your favorite sugar cookie dough
- Red decorating frosting (We used one like this)
- Blue decorating frosting (We used one like this)
- 1 can of white frosting or homemade royal frosting
- Yellow food coloring
- Red and blue sugar sprinkles
- Baking sheet
- Parchment paper
- Toothpick (we used a chopstick)
- #4 tip for icing (They were next to the decorating frosting in the baking aisle)
To begin with, take your favorite sugar cookie recipe and make circular cookies. We made a dozen, but make as many as you need for your event.
If you are making more than 2 dozen, I’d suggest picking up more frosting.
To Make Your Game of Thrones Fire Cookies
Separate your sugar cookies in half. Half of your cookies will be ice cookies, and the other half fire.
To make your fire cookies, start with your red decorating icing. Place your #3 tip on the tube.
Take a spoonful of your white icing and heat for 5-7 seconds. This will make it easier to smooth onto your cookie. Add in orange food dye.
Now taking your cookie, create an fire shape outline. We also filled in the outline slightly to make sure we had enough red frosting to work with.
Now take a quarter-sized amount of your warmed orange frosting and place it in the center of your cookie. (I forgot to take a photo of this step, but you get the idea)
Using your toothpick, or chopstick like us, lightly blend the red and orange frosting together.
You want your fire shape to be redder on the outside, and oranger in the center.
While your frosting is still wet, sprinkle your red sugar sprinkles around the edges of your flame, making sure to leave some orange in the center to really make your flame “pop.”
Now repeat with the remaing half of your fire cookies.
If your frosting becomes difficult to work with, you can warm it slightly in the microwave.
A few seconds is enough! Too much heat will ruin your frosting.
How to make your Game of Thrones Ice Cookies
Using the other half of your cookies, you will be making your “ice” cookies.
Wash the red icing out of your #3 tip. Put it on your blue decorating frosting. Warm a small amount of your white frosting in the microwave for 5-7 seconds.
No color needed for this one, we want it white. Use your blue frosting tube to outline the “ice shape” on half of your cookie.
To me, this kind of made it look like the iconic ice wall. Add a dollop of your melted white frosting onto the upper center.
Using a clean toothpick, blend the blue and white together to create an ice looking structure.
For the ice cookies, we used both very light blue sugar sprinkles and bright blue sugar sprinkles.
We put the light colored sprinkles on the top half of the icing and the brighter blue at the bottom.
If you only have the bright blue, just sprinkle the bottom half of your cookie.
And now you have a pretty “ice” cookie.
Repeat with the rest of your cookies.
