Shame. Shame on me. I haven’t posted in quite some time. Mostly due to some unforeseen life changes happening around here, mostly due to lack of time.
But…I’m back with a new post and a promise to post tutorials on a more regular basis. Nothing can stop me! Well, nothing except some more unforeseen life changes but let’s hope that stress was the last of it.
And what better way to come back with a bang than to celebrate Earth Day? I give you: simple and quick Earth Day Cookies!!!
I chose to make mine with my heart cutter, but you could always use a simple round cutter as well. These took half a day to decorate, so they’re super easy to make.
To make these you’ll need:
Light blue royal icing
Green royal icing
Black royal icing
Start by outlining your cookie with the light blue icing.
Immediately flood the whole cookie with light blue icing.
*Excuse the extremely blurry photo, I had a case of the two-much-coffees.
As soon as you’re done flooding the cookie, pop two candy eyeballs on your cookie. These are the candy eyeballs I used, from Wilton.
You want to do this while your icing is still wet so that the eyeballs will dry with the icing and adhere nicely.
Then…try not to be creeped out.
It’s like it’s watching you…constantly…
Give your cookies an hour or two to dry. Perhaps put them in the oven or in a pantry, so those creepy eyeballs don’t keep staring up at you.
When your cookies have dried, you can start outlining the continents with green icing.
Remember, it doesn’t have to be accurate. I didn’t strive for accuracy because I wanted to have enough room for facial features and, let’s face it, the Earth isn’t heart-shaped either.
Then, flood the continents.
Add some facial features and you’re done!
Happy Earth Day!
