Shells and Sand Dollars

Another random day of decorating last week I created some ocean-related cookies.

I made some additional electric colors to go along with my pink and electric green from the quilts.....and created some bright shapes. Today's shells and sand dollars are on the boring side.....but stay tuned!

These shells did not turn out as I had originally envisioned......but they're OK. They were too much work for the results, though.

I'm pretty happy with the sand dollars. I tried to recreate what I saw in real photos of them. But then it was hard to photograph the indentations, so I tried every angle. 


Much more sea cookies coming......

Thanks Kenni. It is really quite a simple cookie. Outline your "holes" on the sand dollar first. Then fill in the rest of the cookie with white. When the icing starts crusting, use something to make indentions in the shape of a real sand dollar's inner design.

BTW, a sand dollar is kind of a greenish or grayish (I forgot the exact color) when alive and they are fuzzy. Years ago we found a bunch of them alive on a sand bar at the beach.
