Santa cutters? To make mermaids? Yup! Let's just say that it's my own little "Christmas in July" party. I love being able to re-purpose cutters! I realize that it's a gift that I have that not everybody has. Other people can sing and dance and reach the the top shelf of their kitchen cabinet without a stool. Me? I can make a mermaid from a Santa cutter. #winning
So which Santa cutters did I use for these cuties?
This Santa cutter is my current favorite to make Santa cookies. It came in a set with some other Wilton holiday cutters.
This cutter is Wilton's Santa comfort grip cutter. Find it here.
I try to stick to my *average* sized cookie (say 3.25"-3.5") when I complete my orders. It's ingrained in me, through my attempts at keeping things even-steven between my boys. Otherwise known as my attempt at World Peace.
Sometimes, I still purchase mini cutters or extra big cutters because you just never know when you'll need them. Lo and behold, an oversized Santa makes a great mermaid too! Find this cutter here.
So don't neglect those "out of season" cutters. You might just find a shape that will work perfectly for your design!
