I consider my house to be the home of the Brady Bunch in cat form. When my significant other and I combined our households into one, we ended up with two of everything including 2 pairs (pair?) of cats. It took them a few months to get used to each other, but now they can all at least stand to be in the same room. Sometimes they can even share a couch.
I made these cat cookies as a gift for a friend who took care of the fur babies while we were away. Clockwise from left: Eddie, Kraemer, Tubby, Missy.For products used in this and other tutorials, visit my recommended products page. My cookie and royal icing recipe are available in my tutorial shop.I started out by making a sketch. I tried to capture the characteristics that make each cat unique. (Clockwise from left) Eddie has a teddy bear face, Kraemer has a skinny head and a mane, Tubby has a peanut butter face, and Missy is calico with raccoon eyes.
I’ve had this cat cutter for a long time and I cannot remember where in the world in came from. I thought maybe it was from a Wilton assorted set of cutters, but I couldn’t find it on their site. I did, however, find a similar shape at Cheap Cookie Cutters!
I ended up trimming off what I think is supposed to be the end of the tail so that I could make their tails wrap around the front. This cookie was made using my Orange Vanilla Spice recipe, which is available in my tutorial shop.
This is my cat color palette.
Orange: Americolor tulip red + Wilton lemon yellow (I don’t own any orange color!)
Green: Wilton juniper green from the garden tone set
Pink: Wilton pink + orange (The 3 pinks here are the same, just different shades)
- Kraemer gray: Americolor black + tiny bit of Wilton brown
I iced these cookies using the wet on wet royal icing technique. I started out by filling in the white areas with flood consistency royal icing and a tip 2 and then filled in the colors also using a tip 2 and flood consistency icing.
Blue: Wilton sky blue
Eddie gray: Americolor black
I allowed the icing to dry overnight and then piped the details using a tip 1 and used a scribe tool to help shape the icing. I filled in the pupils with a FooDoodler edible ink marker.
