How to Decorate a Koala Cookie

Posted by Anne Narber on Thursday, January 18, 2018

There is an amazing NEW cutter set that just released. It has 17 animal cutters designed by some of the world's best decorators!! And the best part? Both Sweet Elite and Flour Box Bakery are donating 100% of the net profit to Tender Hands Inc., a charity based in India that helps train under-privileged women in the baking industry to find meaningful work and earn a living wage. Learn more about Tender Hands (or donate) - click here!

So here are the amazing cookies that were created from this new cutter set. You can find it in our shop - click here to view and buy!

And here are the cutters...

I designed the Koala Cutter <3 I had so much fun making these cute cookies!!!

Watch the video and learn how to make them! **Note, I use a KopyKake projector to help guide the outlines. You could also use a Pico Projector (it's smaller/compact, brighter and cheaper - but requires a little tech saaviness). Or, if you don't have a projector, you can cute the template out in paper and trace the image with a yellow. This cookie could also be freehand, but I decided to use the projector to make the cookies as consistent from cookie to cookie.

DOWNLOAD THE KOALA SKETCH to use with your projector.

These are the Chefmaster colors I used in this set: The koala fur is sky blue PLUS a teeny tiny dot of black. Then I used super black and bright white for the details. The little flower is deep pink (only a tiny dot to keep it pastel). See the full collection of liqua-gel colors - click here.

I used the foodoodler ultra thin black marker for the eyelashes.
