Australia Cookies

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!

SF Giants Cookies!

I am so excited that these cookies finally had a reason to happen!

My hubby is a die-hard Giants fan and always has been. Naturally I had the choice to either get on board, or be forever miserable and bored and angry about the TV takeovers. Okay, so I still get that way, but only after so many days in a row.

I really enjoy going to the games, and I have gained quite the wardrobe of black and orange over the last couple years.

These cookies were super fun to make because I was given free range to make whatever I wanted. They are for my coworker’s dinner group, who were having a Giants baseball themed get-together.

I have all the necessary parts.

Balls & Bats…

Logos… I made these by printing and cutting out a logo, poking holes in the icing with a toothpick, then connecting the dots.

A couple “Fear the Beard” silhouettes… I made these by just eyeballing it.

I’m sure I will be doing these again soon. I have so many more shapes I thought of after I had already finished baking.

Black & Orange!!!
