How to Make Cute Simple and Fun Decorated Bear Cookies | The Bearfoot Baker

Time for another set of bear cookies! We made How to Make Fun Furry Bear Cookies with a cutter I designed for the American Cookie Cutter Set for Charity earlier this week and that’s just the beginning! Now it’s time to use white royal icing and make decorated bear cookies that look like cute little polar bears.

Guess what? You can make these bear cookies with any color of royal icing and then add a cookie to represent whatever holiday or theme you want. Since it’s almost Valentine’s Day, you can add cute little hearts or a box of chocolate candy.

For St. Patrick’s Day, you can add cute green clovers. How about some cute flowers or a beach ball for summer? I think so! I can’t wait to make him holding pumpkins for fall or a turkey for Thanksgiving. Can you tell I’m a little excited? You need to get excited too because we are about to have some FUN!

  • While the icing is wet, add the 4mm pearl dragees for the eyes. If you don’t want to use the pearls you can use black icing.

  • Before the white royal icing on the bear cookie dries, add the accent cookie or the royal icing transfer that you want your bear to hold.
  • Gently place the accent cookie on the stomach of the bear and try not to move it around. It can make the bear’s icing look messy. Just place it on the bear and step away.
  • Let the cookies dry completely.
