The Lorax!


So, I thought I would try to make Lorax cookies.  I have to be honest with you.  I have neither read the book, nore seen the movie...  Oh, what the heck!  He is SO CUTE!  

I decided to trace pictures onto a parchment papera so I can place this on to cookies.  Okay, this was much harder than I thought...  At least I know there is always first time for everything!   At least I know each time I create something, I learn new things.  It's just so fun learning and creating at same time.  I'd love to try to make the Lorax cookies again!  To do so, I need to change some of the steps I made! 


 Here I am, tracing the Lorax and the Unless sign.  I have to let you know, I would NOT use parchment paper for this technique.  Once icing is on a piece of parchment paper, it starts to get wrinkled from the moisture in icing!!!  Thin plastic sheets would be the best for this use.  Plus, you get to use these sheets again.  Ugh!  When I saw papers get wrinkled, you have no idea I was so sad!



Okay, so, I got this idea of using cotton candy for his great mustache from
Sweetopia Just like what she says on this blog. You MUST eat cookies with cotton candy right after you make them!  Because once cotton candy sucks all the moisture, it shrinks and becomes really hard!!

Okay, so, the story is...  I was going to give these cookies to two tiny girl friends.  Unfortunately, I was only able to give cookies to one of them that day.  I saw the other one next weekend, so I saved some for her.  She was so happy and told me how good it is.  I was worried about cotton candy being ugly looking.  Well, what 10 yrs old kid cares when something sweet and awesome is given?    haha all the stress I had for nothing.

P.S.  This technique is fun.  Results are totally awesome.  BUT!!  You will have a cookie with THICK icing.  The girl's dad thought I was turning her into a stray monkey hahaha
