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.

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
