- Almost any bunny head cookie cutter will work.
Royal Icing Colors:
- Ivory by Americolor- 4 ounces of royal icing + 6 drops of Americolor Ivory. I used an outline and flood consistency to make these cute bigfoot cookies.
- Totally Brown by The Cookie Countess- To make this I used SOOTM Consistency (Straight Out Of The Mixer Consistency). In case you want the formula to make it here is what I did: 4 ounces of SOOTM Consistency + 12 Drops of Totally Brown Food Gel Color= a really good brown for bigfoot.
- Disposable Bags
- Decorating Tip PME #2
- Turkey Lacer

Let’s get started!
These cookies are super simple. You can use many different bunny rabbit cookie cutters to make them. So find a cutter and let’s get started.
- Turn the cookie upside down and pipe three dots (toes) on each foot with the outline consistency of the ivory-colored royal icing. Be sure to leave a little space in between each dot and make the first toe big and work down to the smallest toe.
- Let them dry for a bit so when you pipe the rest of the toes they will each be a circle. If you work to fast they will all run together and it won’t look like toes.
- Next, use the same icing and outline the feet and the ankles.
- Use the outline consistency of brown royal icing and pipe a zig-zag line around the body and attach it to each foot.
- Flood the body with the brown flood royal icing consistency.
- Use the turkey lacer or Thingamagenie to pop any air bubbles and smooth out the icing.
- Let it dry before you start to pipe the fur.
Bigfoot Cookies with a Bunny Cutter and Bare Feet:
- Flood the feet with the flood consistency of the ivory royal icing.
- Let it dry until it forms a crust.
- Next, add the fur. You can pipe the fur by using a decorating tip or you can trim the end of the decorating bag off. I’m a bit old school and like total control of my icing so I used a PME tip #2 and I loved the control it gave me. Do whatever works for you! Use a tip or trim the bag. Just have fun while you make these.
- You’re almost done so hang in there.
- You can leave the feet as is or you can use The Cookie Countess Totally Brown Food Gel color to add a little shading. I think it makes his feet look dirty. That’s a good thing because everyone knows bigfoot doesn’t wear shoes!
- Mix a little vodka with the Totally Brown Food Gel color and paint it on his feet. You can be careful and do just the edges or you can go a little crazy like I did. I think crazy works when you make bigfoot cookies!
