Who is excited about going and seeing the new Lego Batman movie this weekend? I loved all the Batman movies that had Christian Bale as Batman, but I won't call myself a huge Batman fan. It's nice that the Lego Batman is more kid-friendly. Cartoon movies aren't my thing but this Batman movie looks like it could be really funny. I'm not sure I will see it in theaters, but might watch it when it comes out on streaming.
I made these Batman cookies over a year ago during Christmas time. I was already posting so many Christmas cookies I thought adding Batman cookies would be weird.
If there is one color I dislike using the most is black. It stains everthing it touches and discolors people's mouths. It's hard to avoid when asked to make Batman logos. I knew right away I wanted to airbrush the bat on. I know it's still using black, but a thin layer of airbrush is better then an icing bat. I used my Shilloute Portrait to create a stencil with acetate. I had to hand-cut the cookies to get the correct oval shape. Once the cookies were baked, I took a measurement of the cookies so I knew what size to make my bat stencil. After that, the cookies were pretty simple. I piped and flooded with yellow icing. Once dried, I airbrushed on the bat and outlined the cookies with black icing.
