I wasn’t planning on doing this post. It came about because I saw the fox cookies I made on Pinterest with the caption, “What does the fox say.” I thought it was funny because my oldest son had told me about the song and Youtube video the day before. The video is kinda weird but, it cracked me up enough to make what does the fox say cookies.
I did a short tutorial for it and you can always see the original here. I had to stop myself from dressing up like a fox and making a video while doing the “what does the fox say dance.” I didn’t and you’re welcome. No one wants to see that.
Supplies for What Does the Fox Say:
Mix 15 Second Icing for each of the following colors in a piping bag with #2 tips:
- Orange-ish Icing- I used AmeriColors orange, burgundy and ivory and added a small amount of each color until I got the orange-ish color I wanted.
- Darker Orange-ish- Follow the same steps for the orangish but add a tiny amount of brown.
- Star Cookie Cutter
I did the ears a little different this time thanks to Mike at Semi Sweet. He has given cookies a little more dimension by painting on a color and then piping icing around it. Check out his posts here and here. Also, Gail from One Tough Cookie did this technique here. I plan on doing this technique alot because it gives parts of your cookie depth.
Following his tutorial, paint the inside of the ears with the dark orange color and let it dry for about 20 minutes. Then, outline and flood the fox with the lighter orange-ish color. Let it dry completely.
Outline and flood the rest of the face with white icing.
Add royal icing nose and eyes with a drop of icing. You can add the eyes and nose when the icing is wet but, I was out of transfers and had to wait for them to dry. You can do it either way.
