Supply list for How to Make Christmas Cookies for Shark Week:
Royal Icing Colors:
Royal Icing Transfers:
Dots- just make a bunch of dots for your trees in any color you want.
Candy Star for the top of the tree
- Use an edible food-safe marker to draw the pattern on the shark.
- Pipe the tree trunk with the brown icing.
- Pipe the white royal icing on the shark’s tummy and let it dry for a few hours.
- Next, outline and flood the shark with the grey royal icing.
- Add a 4mm bead for the eye or you can use black icing to make the eyeball.
- Let the tree dry overnight before you finish the tree.
- Use the thick green royal icing to pipe the tree leaves or these called branches? Anyway, pipe the green royal icing onto the tree.
- While the green icing is still wet and the white royal icing transfer dots or candy stars or anything you’d like to use to decorate your tree.
- While the tree is drying paint the gill openings with the Edibleart paint. Mix the black and grey or you can use just the black if you want them a little darker.
- Now it’s time for the fun part of the shark cookies, the teeth. Put a little royal icing on the tip of the turkey lacer and touch the icing to the shark’s mouth and pull the turkey lacer away quickly. It should make the icing look like little teeth.
- Let your cookies dry completely.
