You know when you go to the carnival and they have those giant boards that are painted like attractive surfers or old timey people? And they have holes cut out so you can stick your head through and look like some guy with a beard who has a lot of muscles? I feel like that, except for the muscles part. Just the part where my Lilo face is poking out of a board painted to look like The Cookie Cutter Company.
Hi! I’m Georganne, from LilaLoa cakes and cookies and sweet little things blog., and I am SO excited to be working with The Cookie Cutter Company, and even more excited to show you these sailboat cookies. I'm basically in love with sailboats. If you want to, you can totally pretend to love them as much as I do and we can go sailing every summer together, eat cookies, and be best friends forever and ever. Or, just make some cookies that look like sailboats. Want to?
To make these sailboat cookies you will need the following cutters:
1. Outline the ship with thick brown icing and the sails with thick black icing.
2. Flood the bottom of the ship with brown icing. Immediately pipe 3 dots of flood consistency white icing and then 3 drops of black on top of the white dots to make the cannon holes.
3. Fill in the sails with flood consistency icing, making sure to not overfill each sail. Flood the top of the ship with brown icing.
4. Add the bottom and tops of each mast.
1. Outline the ship and the yardarm (that's the horizontal thing at the top of the boat) with thick brown icing. Then, outline the sail with black icing. Come back with the brown icing and outline the mast.
2. Flood the bottom of the ship with flood consistency brown icing. While still wet, add 5 dots of flood consistency white icing, immediately followed by 5 dots of black icing. Flood the yardarm at the top with brown icing.
3. Flood the sails with white icing and let dry for a good long time.
4. Fill in the mast with brown icing. Pipe a red "X" on top of the sail. Add some fancy little dots and lines if you want.
1. Outline the bottom of the boat with black icing. Pipe two lines close together for the mast. Outline the sails with black icing.
2. Flood the bottom of the boat with red icing. Fill the outer stripes on the sails with navy icing, and pipe a tiny little flag on top of the mast with some red icing. Use a toothpick to make it pointy if that's important to you.
3. Fill in the middle stripe. It’s a small space, so it would be a good idea if the icing was at least 15 counts thick so it doesn't fall in the middle and leave some weird crack in the icing. Flood the sails with white icing. Take a nice long break. Maybe have a popsicle or something. Take this time to wonder why they don't make popsicles like they use to. Let me know if you figure it out.
4. Add a red star to the top of the sail. If you want to, you could just add a circle of icing and then pull it in 5 directions to make it look like a star. That's what I did.
1. Outline the bottom of the boat with black icing. Pipe two lines of brown icing right next to each other for the mast. Add two lines at the bottom of the mast to make the boom. (Seriously, I bet you didn't realize you were in for a sailing terminology lesson today with words like "yardarms" and "booms" being thrown at you.) Outline the sails with the thick black icing again.
2. Fill in the bottom of the boat with light blue, flood consistency icing.
3. Flood the top of the boat. Fill the sails with white at the same time.
4. You can just be done right here, or you could add some little dots and dashes to the hull of the boat. (I tricked you. You thought we were done with that whole "learning" stuff didn't you?)
Feel free to share your sailboat cookies on The Cookie Cutter Company's Facebook page. If you would like to see more of my design ideas, then check out my blogs over at LilaLoa, or check out my Facebook page.
