I made some Bubble Guppie cookies for fellow blogger Jennifer a few months back, and ever since the Bubble Guppie orders have poured in! They are so fun to make, and I love to see that people enjoy them!
I won't lie, these are extremely time consuming. I snapped a couple of pictures to show you the process.
I bake the cookies the night before and ice them all blue. I let them dry overnight to make sure I have a solid, dry surface to work on the next day.
I use a template I printed off of the computer, and draw the basic outline of each character onto the cookies with an edible marker.
Next a take black icing (piping consistency) and use a #1 tip to outline each character. I have tried a #2 tip and the line just seemed too bulky in my opinion.
I then fill each cookie and let it dry for an hour before I add all of the finish details.
I wish I had taken a pic of the cookie before I added the final details, but basically the eyebrows, lashes, noses, accent marks etc.
The finished product!
I use edible markers for each characters mouth because the area is so small. This is the very last thing I do after the cookies have dried again overnight. You NEVER want to write on a cookie that has not dried overnight. It isn't pretty if you rush the process.
Keep the character orders coming!!!
