Every time I go to the dentist, my dental hygienist and I talk about my cookie decorating escapades. And many times in the past couple of years, I've promised her that I would make cookies for the dentist and entire staff to enjoy. I'm FINALLY getting around to fulfilling that promise.
Tooth cookies were the obvious choice as the focal point to the collection. But believe it or not, after looking through all my cookie cutters (and trust me, I have TONS!), I did not own a tooth cookie cutter! I came to the conclusion that a tall heart cutter and a small oval cutter could make my dental cookie dreams come true. :)
Outline and flood the top tier of the each tooth cookie with white glaze.
Allow it to dry for about 30 minutes and then outline and flood the rest of the cookie, overlapping the first layer to create the tooth crown at the top. (see photo below)
Allow the cookies to dry overnight.
Combine super pearl dust with vodka (or a clear extract, ex. almond) and paint it over the entire tooth surface.
Pearly whites are ready for "dental care". :)
