A workmate of mine mentioned that her nephew really love sharks. He is really into it and she mentioned one day that if i ever want to make a shark cookie to remember him :)
Well we had some left over cookie dough after making our last batch of cookies, so we decided to make some shark cookies. Its pretty simple as we only need one base colour and a little bit of red, black & white icing. Here are the sharks ready to attack :P
Okay so to make these sharks we had to make a paper template as unfortunately we don't have a shark cookie cutter. We cut out the shape of the shark in paper and we cut the dough with a sharp knife. I think i have put a link to Haniela's tutorial on how to make a paper template in my lil red riding hood post.
If you missed it, here is the link again.
So after you have cut and baked the cookie dough the next step is to mark the area that you want to fill with icing with an edible food marker.
After the next steps are quite simple - see the photos below for a step by step visual
Step 1: Outline and fill the area with a purplish grey icing and let it dry for a few hours.
Step 2: Fill in the mouth area with a red flood icing to make a shape of the shark's tongue & let it dry.
Step 3: With a white piping icing piped the shark's sharp teeth on the mouth area & let it dry.
The next step is to put the details. With a tip#2 piped a small black icing for the eye, once it dries pipe a small white dot on top of the black with a tip#1.
When that's done the next thing to do is to pipe the outline of the shark with a piping consistency icing, then pipe the same icing to make 3 gills on the body of the shark. That's it, all done :)
Hope the boys who had these shark cookies loves their shark attack treats ;-)
