|My attempt at Lego cookies.|
So I got hubby to print out a head to make a template and I used a take out container to trace it onto and there you go. Now after I baked mine I thought they looked all wonky and what not, so I think if I ever do them again I will just do a large rectangle. I must not have the cookie template cutting jean or something.

|Outlined and starting to flood.|

I flooded the little top and bottom sections first, then went back and filled in the rest. I use this stick to help move the flood icing around. I have read that royal icing really needs an hour or so between sections to stop them from running together. With the glaze I find 10 minutes is all you need as it starts to crust right away.
|I use a toothpick sort of thingy to pull the icing right out to the edge|
I left them to dry for two days, and then I put them into these cookie bags I got at the warehouse, but mine are clear and bigger. I tied them with curling ribbon and there you go. If I had thought of it sooner I might have made some tags or something, but you know, I always think of these things after the thought. I also keep all my shoe boxes because these cookies stand up well and it holds them in place. It is also a great reason to buy more shoes. ( as if you need a reason.)
|All wrapped and ready to go.|
