I love when I get creative control over a cookie order. The client asked for a zoo animal themed set and that’s it. I really wanted to focus on the different animal prints and textures for this set and what I came up with was eye catching. I started out with the basic square, circle and scalloped edged cookie cutters. I flooded each cookie with white icing and let them dry.
Then I began to lightly paint (with different food colorings) the background of each cookie to create an uneven texture. Once that dried, I moved on to the animal prints and used black and dark browns. For the jungle leaves I used a nice moss green. My favorite print was the giraffe because the colors looked so lovely together. These were definitely winners.
