Cookie Cutters

There are no cookie cutters available for this class. Instead you will be using the templates provided to cut your shapes. Simply print the template sheet provided (at 100% scale) and cut around the outline of each shape. You can then place the cut-out paper on your dough and use a penblade or sharp paring knife for hand-cutting the shapes.

Don’t be surprised at the size of these cookies. They are meant to be very large! Working with larger cookies and thus larger text is a great starting point when learning to write with royal icing.
