I am fascinated with jellyfish. I think they are beautiful, graceful, mysterious and scary. When I visit Ripley’s Aquarium, I stand at the jellyfish exhibit for hours because I become memorized by the way they move. I like them so much I decided to make simple little jellyfish cookies.
Their cute little legs make them look like they are floating gracefully in the water. I think the pink one is my favorite. Or maybe the blue on is.
Supplies for Simple Little Jellyfish:
Next, add some dots to the head with the dark icing while the light color is wet. This is called a wet on wet technique. I like it because it will dry nice and flat and the dots will spread out and make perfect little circles.
To add a little airbrushing to the jellyfish set up an airbrush gun station.
Next, add a little airbrush color. For more information on how to use and airbrush gun click here. I am using AmeriColor Airbrush Color Electric Pink. Cover the legs with parchment paper so no airbrush color lands on it.
The farther away the tip of the airbrush gun is the bigger the sprayed area. If you are nervous about airbrushing, practice on your parchment paper first to get the feel of the gun.
If you need me, I will be at Ripley’s Aquarium in the Gatlinburg, Tennessee watching the real jellyfish! I wonder if they will let me feed one.
In the meantime, here are a few more beach themed cookies and royal icing transfers for you to enjoy.
