Baby Triceratops Cookies

I have a whole bin full of dinosaur cookie cutters but not one that I absolutely love.  So, when it came time to make triceratops cookies, I had to get a little creative.How to Decorate Triceratops Cookies

Baby Dinosaur CookieI’ve never used this cutter for comets or shooting stars, but I LOVE it as a triceratops.

This cutter is included in the Wilton 101 Cookie Cutter Set, but if you don’t already own it, you can pick one up here.

Triceratops Cookie CutterTo make these cookies you will need:

For uniform cookies, use a food color marker to sketch the face before flooding.  It should resemble an upside-down acorn.

  1. Use a small tip and pipe lines to indicate a snout, nostrils, and a mouth.
  2. Use white piping icing to pipe three horns on the triceratops’s face.
  3. Add eyes
  4. Pipe legs and toenails

Triceratops CookieWhile we’re on the subject, I decided to throw in a picture of this guy.  When I first began my cookie decorating adventure, this cutter frustrated me to no end.  So, here’s a simply decorated example for reference sake.

    Callye, you are on a ROLL, girl! These are so adorable and I love the very limited color palette. Makes them super easy to pull off and the cuteness of the design gives them lots of cute personality!
