I bought a 3D printed racecar cutter that was going to be PERFECT for these racecar cookies for Syler’s Hotwheels party. When it came time to cut and bake the cookies, I pulled out the cutter and it had somehow gotten warped! Like unfixable, way too skinny, crooked warped.
Onto Plan B. I’ve had this 57 Chevy cutter since way back when – when I made 300 of them. It is way too long and fancy for racecars, so I had to do quite some trimming. I used my warped cutter as a reference.
I outlined in black to make the colors POP.
Then filled them in a bright blue.
I added window and tires, then red rims and a big red 4. Because Syler is 4! (Remember when he was 3? and 2? and 1?) I can’t believe I’ve had the privilege of making cookies for every birthday he’s had!
Happy Birthday Syler!

Cute cookies! I notice that your post has the tag “buttercream”, but the pictures look like royal icing. I’m just curious as to which it is? (I am a decorated-cookie-fanatic too!)
Thank you! I outline and detail in buttercream, and fill with glaze. It allows me to get texture and dimension that glaze doesn’t offer, but is easier and tastier than royal icing.
