Sea Creatures Cookies

Last year for my mother-in-law’s church crab feed live auction I made these cookies. This year I wanted to do something a little different, while still sticking to the under the sea theme.

I found this amazing set of cutters on the Wilton website. Included were so many “sea” creatures that I had a hard time narrowing it down to just a few!

I sketched out my ideas on paper first, but once I hit the cookie it was all freehand.

I outlined in black to give it that cartoon feel. I just love how it makes the colors pop.

The eyes I used the same technique I used on my Santa cookies. I love how googly-eyed it made them and it turned out perfect for these silly sea creatures.

The next day I got an email from my mother-in-law telling me that bidding for my cookies was fierce, but that my husband’s grandpa persevered. I told him next time I will make him his own plate so that he doesn’t have to bid on them. Haha..
