Shark Mouth Cookies
Call me a nerd, but these cookies give me a chuckle. Believe it or not, they were inspired by kid’s clothing.
Not only is he cute…this camera-shy little boy is great cookie inspiration.
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.
To decorate these cookies you will need:
- 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.
To begin outline and fill the top section of the cookie with gray icing.
Let the gray set for a bit, then fill the mouth with gray 20-second icing.
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.
These silly cookies are giggle-worthy and easy to make.
Great job! I love those & we were just saying that Jaws would be a great movie for the 4th! Those cookies would be great for the movie!
So much fun! And clever! 🙂
Sharks always did scare me. I used to be afraid of them even in swimming pools. (I had a crazy imagination as a kid.) But these are sharks I can handle. So fun and cute! Happy 4th, Callye!
Like always these are perfect and super fun.
If we were teenagers in the same class we would get in trouble for giggling because they make me giggle as well! Love these cute shark cookies!
PS- You little guy is so handsome!!

Abother adorable set… I love them all.. Your colors are so pretty too… 🙂
I have recently gotten into cookie decorating after making some horrid cookies for teacher appreciation week. I have bought a few books, but I have to say your blog and tutorials are by far the most clear, most helpful and most inspiring! I hope a book deal comes your way so I can add it to my collection! The shark cookies are so cute! Ps. I have a gum ball machine cookie cutter on order!
Oh, my goodness, there is no end to your creativity and imagination!! These cookies are great!
Callye… These are so fantastic!!! They are just perfectly done and so cute!
I just saw the DVD at Walmart in the $5. bin, I saw this movie as a child and was convicted jaws would get me while on the toilet lol (not a joke). Love your cookies flawless as always, they would be lots of fun for a pool party.
I love these! And the surf boards are so cute!!
Hi Callye! I’ve following you for a while now and I do really like how you work. You are an inspiration for me and I do try to get amazing results as you do. I’ve just started a blog (www.cook-ies.com) so I can share too!
Thanx a lot for all the tips!
