Sunny Glasses (Pictorial)

It's about time I did a pictorial for you.

I wanted to make some sunglasses......but the only cutter I could find for them is really small. SO.....I decided to improvise and make my own.

First I took a rectangle.............and used my mini diamond shape cutter to start carving out the bottom of the sunglasses.


After carving a little from the outside corners, I smoothed out the bottom edges (one of right).

Once baked.....outline your eyeglasses with the color of your choice.

 And fill it in....

Add black to the inside, and white "reflection" lines.

Moving onto the sun cookies......I'll admit that it is very hard for me to make a really nice circle on a cookie. So I used my circle cookie cutters for some help.

Place your circle cutter on top of the cookie.....

And then add some dots of icing on the inside to give you reference marks to make your circle.

 Then connect the dots to make your outline.....

and fill 'er in. :)


And there you have it..........some sunny glasses. ;)

Stay cool!

I LOVE that sunshine.  the stitiching, the squiggly lines and the face make him look different in a way I really like =)  I've never seen a sun look sweet, and sunny!  Good to have you back

I love the glasses!  What a great idea to get a good circle (I thought I was the only one who had trouble with that-I really like straight edges).  I'm going to try that next time!

I was just thinking that I need a sun cookie cutter for water-themed cookies for my son's new job. I didn't even think of using one of my flower cookie cutters! Fantastic idea! I love the tutorial. Your sunglasses are adorable!

Beautiful cookies!  As an aside, when I am trying to put a circle in the middle of a cookie like that, I often will semi cut the cookie with the round cutter, and then after they bake, your guide is already imprinted in the cookie.  Works for me!
