Robot, Sprocket, and Gear Cookies

When I was a little girl, I always wished I had a robot.  You know, like Rosie from the Jetsons. She’d call me Miss C, clean my room, and do help me with my homework, especially math.  And if I was lucky, she might even come with a magic dinner maker too.

I thought by 2012 personal robots would be a reality, but since it doesn’t look like that’s happening anytime soon, I had to realize my dream in cookie form.

The main focus of this platter is robots, of course, but today I want to talk about the sprocket and gears.  I love these cookies because they are the perfect combination of cute and simple.

After cutting out various flower cookies, use a circle cookie to clip the petals.

Once that’s done, use a small round fondant cutter, icing tip, or straw to cut out the center.

Bake them, then outline and flood.  If you want to get super fancy, add a little sanding sugar to the edges.  If you aren’t sure how to so this, I have a helpful how-to right here.  If you need custom-colored sanding sugar learn how to make it here.

Don’t worry, I didn’t forget about the robots.  You can find a full list of the cutters I used to make them by clicking HERE.

PS-Did you know that in Texas even the robots wear cowboy hats?

These would also make great Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Cookies, especially if you’re not up to attempting Mickey’s face.

Hopefully I’ll have a robot of my own in a few years.  In the meantime, I guess cookies will have to do.

Happy Baking!

    Oh I do adore robots. In fact I’m just in the middle of making som Robot Cakepops. I made my own cogs and sprockets cookies from some of the cutters I had sitting around and I’m feeling really silly at the moment cause what you did it totally simpler. You are totally a genius with cookie cutter re-purposing.
