To make princess wand cookies, you will need:

Start by turning your sugar cookie recipe into star-shaped cookie pops. If you’ve never made cookie pops before or need a little help with your technique, check out Cookie Pops 4 Different Ways.

Use gel food coloring to dye your royal icing two colors of your choice. I used light purple and light pink. Water down your icing to a 10 to 12-count consistency and then load each color into a separate piping bag or bottle.

If you need help with icing color or consistency, check out the How To Make Royal Icing section of 101 Essential Cookie Decorating Resources.

Pipe a border around the edge of a star cookie. Immediately fill the entire cookie surface with icing in the same color as the border.

While the icing is still wet, add dots in a different color around the outer edge. Run a toothpick, scribe, or boo-boo stick through the dots in one continual motion around the entire edge of the cookie.

While the icing is still wet, sprinkle the surface with rainbow disco dust. To ensure that I don’t overdo it, I like to dip a food safe paint brush into the disco dust, hold it above my cookie, and tap it with my finger. This method gives my cookies a light dusting of disco dust with plenty of noticeable sparkle.

***UPDATE: Please note that since this blog post was written, I have discovered that there is some debate over the use of disco dust on food products. It is marketed for cake decorating, but it is not FDA approved and is labeled only as “non-toxic”. My understanding is that it is not digested by the body and will pass through harmlessly in small amounts. For an edible alternative to disco dust, try Wilton Cake Sparkles or Sugarpaste Crystal Colors.***

Repeat this process with each cookie, setting aside the completed cookies to dry overnight before packaging. I like to let my iced cookies dry overnight on a cookie sheet protected by a mesh food cover.
