I must admit...character cookies give me anxiety.
Probably because everyone knows exactly what they're suppose to look like.
You can't have 'oopsies' or 'uhohs'. People will know. And they'll point and laugh and whisper behind your back.....ok..maybe not that extreme, but you get my point.
Orders for character cookies were one of the main reasons I was so happy to receive a KopyKake for Christmas. (The main reason was to pipe lettering better and more consistently).
I give people who don't own KopyKake's and who make beautiful character cookies lots and lots and lots of credit.
For these Diego cookies, I knew I wanted something a little different. I didn't want to just do Diego's face or a complete image of the baby Jaguar.
I piped both of the characters onto the cookies first....then I added Diego's white background. I decided to leave Jaguar's background blank...but it still needed a little something. I let them sit for a day..and stared at them until I figured out little dots around the edge would be the perfect finishing touch.
A sorority sister of mine asked me to make these for her son who's turning 3.
Happy 3rd Birthday, Maddox!!! Enjoy your Go Diego Go Birthday party!!!!
And I hope you love your cookies!
