Here's how they came together:
Make sure you have a lot of time to do these cookies! The brown on the face has to dry completely before you add the lighter brown snout part.
I made this special one with a party hat for my (half) birthday boy!
I also made some Carl cookies in honor of my dog that I blogged about in my last post.
I used Jelly Bellies cut in half for the eyes and they look a little freaky. Not to mention that they were the weird flavor ones. I swear mine was ham flavored. Ewww.
But the fun part about these cookies was that I used an elephant cookie cutter to make them! At first I was going to leave the trunk part on the cookie and make it look like Carl's tongue was lolling out. But I couldn't figure out how to make that look right, so I just cut the trunk part off. (I learned that you cut off unwanted parts before baking instead of after or you end up with a crumbly edge.)
I'm thinking I can use the same elephant cookie cutter with the trunk cut off to make some sweet Princess Leia cookies!
