Lorax Cookies

About two weeks before Ben’s Willy Wonka party, we were walking around Target looking for things I needed when Ben announced that he decided he wanted a Lorax party instead. Now, I had just sent out the invitations (golden tickets wrapped around Hershey bars), but I hadn’t bought anything else. So we walked around the store debating the pros and cons of Willy Wonka verses the Lorax as far as party-ability. In the end we finally agreed (and yes, I negotiated a deal with an almost three-year-old) that we would have a Wonka party and bring Lorax cupcakes into daycare.

I took some pictures along the way, because it was actually very easy to make this cookie topper. I used a mustache cutter from this set and a small oval cutter.

  1. Cut out your mustaches.
  2. Cut out two small ovals per cookie. Use the oval to cut notches into the mustache to fit the eyes- I did take a picture of this step, but it was blurry 😦
  3. Outline your mustache in yellow piping icing (I used an Ateco 1 tip)
  4. Flood the mustache.
  5. Pipe two white eyes, using a one step consistency (thick enough to hold its shape, but thin enough to settle flat, 10-20 second consistency). Let this dry overnight.
  6. Add details. Using the yellow, pipe lines on the mustache and eyebrows. Using the orange, pipe a nose (I actually was going to use orange jelly beans, but I didn’t have enough. I think it would be really cute to use jellybeans.) Color the eyes using black and blue food coloring markers.

I baked vanilla cupcakes, topped them with a swirl of orange colored vanilla icing, and topped each with a cookie. Ben was happy. I’m a sucker.
