Simple Fishing Cookies
Are you looking for something fun to do with the kids? Well, since it is the middle of winter and its too cold to play outside for very long, make some fishing cookies. They are easy to make and would be a great indoor activity that will remind them how fun it is playing in the warm sun. They will love it!
Did I mention how easy they are to make? Just checking because they are easy.
Supplies for Fishing Cookies:
Fish Cookie Cutter
Green 15 Second Icing
Yellow 15 Second Icing
Black Sixlet for the eye
Toothpick or Turkey Lacer -A turkey lacer is one of my favorite tools ever!
Begin by outlining the body of the fish with the green icing. Don’t outline the fins yet but we will do it in a few minutes.
While the icing on the body is wet, add a few lines with the yellow icing.
Use the turkey lacer, a BooBoo Stick or a toothpick to drag through the icing to make scales. This is called a wet on wet technique.
Add the Sixlet eye while the icing is wet and let the body dry for about 20 minutes.
Next, outline and flood the fins.
Supplies for the Fishing Bobbers:
Ornament Cookie Cutter
Food Safe Marker
Use the food safe marker to draw the pattern on the ornament.
Next, outline and flood the top of the ornament with the white icing. Let it dry overnight.
Outline and flood the base of the ornament with the red icing.
Remember at the beginning of this post when I told you these were simple cookies to make? I wasn’t kidding was I? They are very easy and dad’s and boys alike will love them. I hope between now and Father’s Day I will be able to find a vintage tackle box to use to pack them in. I think my dad will love it!
