Graduation season is coming to a close and the thermometer says that summer is right around the corner. What does graduation and summertime have in common?
The Wilton graduation cookie cutters! With a little creative thinking, these cookie cutters can be pool-ready in no time!
See how the frog is really the graduation cap- upside down?
Let me show you how to make this cutie pool frog!
After baking, turn that cap upside down. Pipe the swimming mask with piping consistency icing.
Let it dry for a bit.
Use a 20-second green to pipe the frog skin. Quickly add a few yellow spots.
Grab some 20-second white and fill in the mask. While it's still wet, add in a little blue to give it that "glass" reflective look. Drop in some black for eyes now too!
Pretend there are eyes in the pic :) Let dry for a bit.
Grab some thick black icing. Add some of the facial details- like the nostrils and happy smile.
Once the mouth has dried a bit, pipe the snorkel tube with a thicker icing. Mine was a little too thin, but it was already in the decorator bag. And I was feeling lazy.
After the snorkel tube has crusted, add in a few small details to the tube to finish it off. I think he's ready to jump in!
Our pool frog needs a towel to dry off! Use that diploma cutter to make a wrapped up beach towel.
Add in a few other summertime cookies and you are ready for that first pool party of the season!
You'll be sure to make a splash!
