Monkey Cookie Tutorial

Finally - the monkey cookie tutorial is here!

Here's what they will look like when you are all done! 

First, I outlined the ears. I was able to get a better curve with my royal icing by doing it this way. Personal preference of course. =o) 

Outline the rest of the cookie! 

Flood your cookie! And then give it a couple of hours to dry! 

Create a monkey face and then trace the face onto the royal icing with edible food markers! Let the marker dry for a little while before you pipe over it! 

Here's what it looks like after you have traced the face onto the royal icing! 

Pipe the monkey face on and let it dry for a couple of hours. Then go ahead and pipe the color of eyes on. 

Pipe the nose and the mouth on! And then I would wait for quite some time to pipe the black part of the eye and then to follow up with the white part of the eye. I would literally wait at least 8 - 10 hours for the black and white. The royal icing will bleed terrible with those colors. 

And you're done! 

 Thanks for looking!!
