A friend/coworker’s daughter (Mallory!) is leaving for a 6-month exchange program in Australia. Her mom asked me to make her some cookies as a surprise.
I used a teddy bear cutter that came in my Wilton baby set (top cookie) but I turned it upsidedown to make my koalas. Koalas have big ears ya know!
To get an idea of my design, I first sketched it out on the cookie with a yellow food color marker.
Then I outlined all the cookies in black. I will be doing this more often, it made my life 1000 times easier.
I also made some kangaroos!
I teased everyone on fb with this photo of my colors… I didn’t realize how many things could be made with browns and greys until everyone started guessing!
I filled in my little koalas’ bellies, chins, and ears with light grey and let it dry a bit.
Then I came back and filled in the grey. The ears were tricky because I didn’t want to lose the “fluff” definition I made with my black.
So cute already!
Once the grey had dried a little I added some eyes and filled in the noses.
The kangaroos got filled in with brown and light tan for the bellies.
I added a little mouth to a couple of the koalas.
Bye Mallory!! You’re going to have an amazing time!
