Special request from Ellie for elephant cookies :) she is having an elephant birthday theme because elephant is her favorite animal :)
These elephant were fun to make, i specially love the fun colour combo and the polkadots.
Here are the step by step visual on how to make them, very simple and yet very cute :)
For the first batch we made the polkadot elephants.
Step 1: Outline with piping consistency icing using tip #2 and fill with flood icing with tip#3.
Step 2: While the icing is still wet, add the polkadots with white flood icing with tip #2. Let it dry.
Step 3: Piped the ears with flood icing using tip#2.
Step 4: Lastly, add the eyes with black icing.
To make the plain colour elephant with polkadot ears all you need to do is skip step 2 and let the base colour dries in plain colour without adding the white polkadots, and then add the ears. While the ears are still wet add the polkadot with white flood icing.
Then the last step is also add the eyes with black icing :)
That was it, all done. We made a dozen of lime green and a dozen of baby blues.
Hope everyone enjoy these cookies at the birthday party this weekend :)
