Call me a nerd, but these cookies give me a chuckle. Believe it or not, they were inspired by kid’s clothing.
To make shark mouth cookies gently squish a simple egg cutter to create a slightly pointier tip. A larger cutter is best because it’s still a good size with an inch or so trimmed off the base.
- Gray piping and flood icing
- Black 20-second icing
- White piping icing
Before decorating I traced around a small paper template with a fine-tipped marker to make uniform mouths.
When the base is dry add teeth and nostrils. To make sharp pointy teeth make a small dot on the line where the two colors meet and drag the tip down through the icing while releasing pressure. I used a #2 tip for teeth and #1.5 for nostrils.
To make bitten shorts and surfboards use a scalloped-type cutter to take a “bite” out of the cookie before baking. For a more in-depth tutorial, check out how to make bitten surfboard cookies from Not Your Momma’s Cookie.
