Silly Orthodontist Cookies
Little known fact about myself, I am an old chick with braces. I probably didn’t really need braces…as a matter of fact, when I went in for my consult my orthodontist asked me if I’d had them before. But I’d always felt a little self conscious about my teeth, so when it came time for my son to have his, I went too.
Anywho, my orthodontist’s office is about the happiest place on Earth. I love it there. They have fun weekly themes like Western and 80’s week and an open work area that’s always lighthearted and fun. I’ve enjoyed the experience so much, I decided to say “thank you” cookie style. Silly braces cookies were perfect for the occasion.
I purchased my poofy lip cutter a few years ago at Dollar General. They don’t carry them anymore, but it’s easy to make your own by reshaping a regular lip cutter.
If you have a Kopykake skip a step and project the sketch directly onto the cookie. Either way works.
- White 20-second icing
- Gray piping icing
- Red piping and flood icing
Begin with the teeth. Use white 20-second icing to fill alternating spaces. Let them dry for a bit, then fill the remaining squares.
For that full poofy look, I prefer to flood the area around the teeth before moving to the outside border. To learn how to create an invisible outline, click here.
Everyone got a kick out of these silly smiles. You can use the same idea for other designs such as vampire teeth.
