3D Cookie Mug...... Hot Chocolate Anyone? (Tutorial)






To make a 3DCookie Mug you will need:

  • 8-10 Circle Cookies (top cookie with circle cut out)
  • 1 Handle Cookie (see below)
  • Color-of-Choice 10-Second Glaze
  • White 10-Second Glaze
  • Brown 10-Second Glaze
  • Mini Marshmallows (optional) :)

On the day prior to building the cookie mug, make some steam curl glaze transfers.
Pipe white glaze on parchment paper with a #2 round tip in "steam like" patterns.
Allow to dry overnight.

 Cut and bake 8-10 circle cookies (I used a 2 -3/4" circle).
Be sure you cut a smaller circle out of the cookie that will go on the top of the mug.

For the handle, use a circle cookie with the center cut out and then cut it in half. 
You can widen the height of the handle by stretching it out a tad before baking.

"Glue" the mug circles together with glaze as shown.


 Cover mug and handle with glaze.
Allow to dry overnight.

If desired, you can paint a design on the side of the mug using color gel diluted with almond extract.

Glue the handle to the mug with glaze and place a small bowl or other object
under it to keep it in place while it dries.

 (Please excuse the poor quality photos from my cell phone for this last part of construction.)

Fill the small indentation at the top of the mug with brown glaze. 
With some type of rack or support system (and fancy scotch tape!),
 stand the steam curl glaze transfers up in the wet glaze until they dry and are secure.
You can also add some mini marshmallows for the hot chocolate effect. :)

Such a fun idea, Pam! On this chilly morning, I could use a big mug of cocoa...a cocoa cookie sounds even better ;)

Very fun! I love the "steam" and the way you left just a little space at the top. Clever! Kristina
