How to Make These Simple Polar Bear Cookies-Video
I love simple polar bear cookies. As a matter of fact, I love all bears. It doesn’t matter if it is a polar bear, black bear, koala bear, or a panda bear because they all make me jump up and down with joy. I have seen black bears in my back yard and I have been amazed at how an extremely large animal can move around without making a sound.
Another way a bear can give you a little joy is to make these simple polar bear cookies to add to your Christmas platters. If you make a few royal icing transfers ahead of time you can make this cookie in a matter of minutes.
Can you tell what cutter these simple polar bear cookies are made with? I will give you a hint. It is made with a Hello Kitty Cookie Cutter. Who knew Hello Kitty and one color of the icing would make such a cute little bear add to your Christmas platter. Let’s get started.

Simple Polar Bear Cookie Tutorial:
Begin by outlining the ears with a zig-zag line that looks like crazy fur.
Then, outline the head with the same zig-zag line.
Next, flood the ears and let them dry for about 10 minutes. Long enough for the top of the icing to crust over.
Then, flood the head with the white icing and add the eyes. Let it dry for 10 minutes.
Once the icing on the face has had a chance to crust over, flood the muzzle, and add the nose immediately. You can find the pattern for the nose here. If you wan ta smaller nose, I have included the small and medium patterns under the supply list. Also, black icing tends to fade a little over time so you can see here how I keep mine nice and shiny.
Now it is time to make our simple little polar bear cookies pretty because we need pretty bears. So let’s add a ribbon rose for cuteness. Don’t put roses on all of them because you’ll want some to look like boy bears.
You can add the ribbon roses in two different ways. Add it while the flood icing is wet or wait and glue it on with a drop of icing after the flood has dried.
Next, use your airbrush gun to add a little pink color to the cheeks and ears so your bears will have a little color. If you don’t have an airbrush gun use a little pink petal dust so your bear will have cute cheeks.
I made these cookies yesterday in about 20 minutes because they’re among my favorite “fast cookies” to make when I am in a rush. I had another post planned, but it didn’t turn out due to the awful rain. That is why these pictures look a little ‘blue’ and dull. I plan on retaking (update-I actually did redo) the main photo when the sun came back to visit me.
This is why I like simple cookie designs because sometimes we can’t control things like the weather. It is good to plan ahead and have a few simple designs in your pocket so you can be ready to jump up and down with joy.
