“Whale” You Be My Valentine?

These little whale cookies might be one of my all-time favorites.

Whale Cookie

I got the idea for this set from one of my favorite corny Valentine’s Day jokes.

Whale You

Hardy har har.  Get it?

For the cookie I used a balloon cutter and added a wonky flower to some to create a spout.

Next, fill the dark blue area with flood icing.

Once the top portion is flooded, place a dot of lighter blue flood icing onto the base layer and use tweezers to drop in a black sugar pearl.  Remember, you have to work quickly!

Give the dark blue icing a bit of time to set, then flood the lighter area and let dry.

Finish up by using light blue icing to add the final details.

    Will you please tell me how you made the dark blue color? I always use Americolor but I don’t have one that looks like this blue that you used. Did you mix two colors to make it? Thanks in advance for you reply.

      I mix navy with a touch of black. Hope that helps!

        There’s a recipe on the page to make navy blue, I can’t find it at the moment but it was something like:
        1 little drop of black
        3 violet
        3 royal blue

    HI there

    Thank you for all the pointers, i just did my first trial today, and my cookie decorations came out quite nice. Is it possible for you to put a step-by-step guide to decorating a dolphin as you show the whale in this post? My dolphins look fat.

    Thank you again.
    Kind regards

A friend was heading out-of-town to her fathers boat, named the “Lady Lynn“, for a weekend getaway.  Anchors, life preservers, and birthday cupcakes completed the platter.  We added in some whale cookies in hopes that they get to see some of these majestic creatures up in the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.  The Whales were inspired by one of our favorite cookie makers Sweet Sugar Belle. You can check out how to make them at on her blog here. […]
