I have made many a shark cookie in my day! Just like anything as you do them more and more they change a bit and evolve. Here’s a photo of the place card/ favor cookies I did for KF’s 40th birthday dinner a few years ago with CopperGifts “open mouth” shark cutter. I iced the entire cookie warm grey, added an icing dot eye and sugared it. Once the body layer dried, I iced the teeth…
I came across this Hammer Song cookie cutter while doing some shark investigating one day. I love the shape and mouth and teeth!
So for KF’s birthday last year I baked both shape sharks as well as a few wave cookies.
I just had to put a heart on at least one of them even though sharks are not very cuddly! Also one thing to note: I prefer the black icing eyes over the black candy beads seen here. While I love the way the black beads look, one day later, the black color ran and seeped into the grey icing.
In other Shark Cookie news, my “fairy cookie-mother”, Beth, from CopperGifts is sending me their latest shark cookie cutter! Look for our “Cookie Sharks Part 2” coming soon! Shark on, friends… Xo Dani
