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:
(may contain affiliate links)
- Fish Cookie Cutter– this isn’t the same cookie cutter I used to make the cookies because I made them so long ago they don’t make that cutter anymore. This Ann Clark cutter will work and so will many others.
- 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!
Outline and Flood:
- Begin by outlining the body of the fish with the green icing. Don’t outline the fins yet because we’ll do that in a few minutes.
- Next, add a few yellow royal icing lines on the fish while the gree icing one the body is wet.
- 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
- Red Icing
- White Icing
- 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.
