I tried to keep many of the designs for this project simple so that I could complete them quickly and move on to the next cookie. Silhouettes using a dark shape and outline of something visible against a lighter background, is a simple way to create dynamic cookies. Some of my favorite silhouette cookies that I made are these recent flamingos and these Halloween cameos.
To create these cookies, I used the second largest cookie cutter from this set of cutters. I piped and flooded the cookie with white icing. I used a cut out from my Silhouette America library and I used this design. I've use many designs from Silhouette America in the past and they work great. I cut out the design and then traced just the head portion of the cut out on the cookie with food coloring marker. I piped and flooded over my tracing with purple icing. Then the final touch was piping a border around the cookie with yellow icing. When the yellow icing was dry, I painted it gold.
