Watch the video to see how I created these keyboard and mouse cookies!

Supplies:

  • Roll out cookie recipe (use your favorite or get mine in the tutorial shop)

  • Knife to cut the cookies (print out a picture of the keyboard and mouse and use the images as templates)

  • Flood consistency royal icing for the base layer

  • Medium consistency royal icing for the details

  • 12” decorating bags

  • Tipless decorating bag

  • Couplers

  • Scribe tool

  • Concentrated food coloring

  • Silver pearl dust

  • White matte dust

  • Round brush and fine tip brush

  • Paint palette or small dish

  • Alcohol or flavored extract for painting with food coloring (Alcohol or flavored extracts are used for painting on royal icing because they evaporate very quickly, which means that the liquid won’t dissolve the icing as you are applying the paint. The stronger the alcohol, the better!)
