Octopus Cookie Cutter

These sea friends were so much fun to decorate...and we have videos of each design. Yippee!!
This is a medium cookie. For a single batch of dough, you can make about 18-20 of these cookies. I should note that I roll my cookies to 1/4" thick using the Dough EZ Rolling Mat System. The thickness of your cookies will impact your yield.
Prepping the Royal Icing
For a single batch of dough, I typically use a single batch of icing. Since I'm using a KitchenAid mixer, I made a double batch of icing and split it in half (reserving half for another project).
This cookie has 4 icing colors. I used Bright White, Violet, Deep Pink, and Diamond Black. l don't measure exactly...I estimate. For a more detailed look at icing planning, CLICK HERE to read this helpful blog post.
For a royal icing recipe and video CLICK HERE - this recipe can be doubled in a KitchenAid Mixer.
I used these cutters to create the cookies. They are available right here in the online shop.
I would be so flattered if you recreated these cookies! Be sure to tag @theflourboxshop or use hashtag #theflourbox so I can see what you create!
