So you are probably asking what do unicorns and helicopters have to do with each other? Well, nothing really. I just had a request come in for helicopters for a baby shower and didn't want to write a separate post for them.
Most of the time when you see a unicorn, it is all white. I think of this as the quintessential unicorn. The unicorn that I createdd today is pretty simple. The inspiration for these is a unicorn coin bank that I have. I used this cookie cutter. I piped and flooded the whole cookie white. When dry, I covered the whole unicorn with pearl lust dust. I piped some more white icing for the mane and covered it with white sanding sugar. I piped a black dot for the eye and added a tiny dot of white. The rest of the face was draw on with food coloring marker.
For the smaller helicopters I used the cutter from this set. I hand-cut the larger helicopters, but this a very similar cutter. I would recommend using chilled dough for cutting these out. The rotor blades are delicate and when the dough is warm, the cookie beaks apart. I had to piece many of the smaller helicopters back together. The smaller cutter left an impression in the cookie and that is what I followed to decorate the cookie. For the larger cookie, I first drew on the blades and window section with food coloring marker. I iced the cookie yellow and allowed it to dry. I came back and piped and flooded the window. While the blue icing was still wet, I added the white highlight line to the blue. Then with grey icing, I piped over the blades and I drew on and added the skids on the bottom. I also added a small grey "x" on the back of the tail. The final touches were adding some start sprinkles to the blades and tail, and adding "Gus" to the helicopter body,
