100 Animal Cookies: A Super Cute Menagerie to Decorate Step-by-Step
When that one perfect mom shows up at the church cookie exchange with cookies that look like they came from some Martha Stewart Super Cute Cookie Kitchen, you no longer have to be jealous. Now you can make cookies every bit as cute as anything that perfect mom can come up with. All you need is a few cookie cutters and this terrific new cook book.
Lisa Snyder has put together an excellent guide to becoming the super cookie mom of your neighborhood. She starts with three basic cookie recipes and one for royal icing. She then outlines equipment needed, a variety of techniques, and transfers and animal patterns. She groups the cookies by Farm & Pets, Garden Critters, Woodland Creatures, Ocean & Ice Animals, Safari, Desert, & Jungle Animals, and Prehistoric Animals. Each cookie has supplies, directions, tips and tricks, and close-up photographs of the finished cookie. The variety of patterns is stunning and each and every design is absolutely adorable. This well-written, well-designed book can move anyone from a rank amateur into the big leagues of cookie making.
