To make your own dinosaurs:
Mix up a batch of sugar cookie dough and royal icing.
Make a template(with heavy paper) of your dinosaur, unless you are using a cookie cutter.
Roll out cookie dough and place your template on the dough.
Cut out the dinosaur(s) with a sharp, small knife and place on baking sheets.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 15-18 minutes depending on the thickness and your oven.
Let cookies cool.
Divide royal icing up and add food coloring. I used AmeriColor soft gel pastes: Electric Green, Electric Orange, and Super Black.
Outline the dinosaur head in green with the #3 tip.
Outline the scales(?) in orange.
After about 20 minutes fill the dinosaur head in with the green icing and the scales with the orange.
After the green has dried completely, add the black smile and nostrils.
Add a small dab of royal icing to store-bought icing eyes and place them on the dinosaur. (I purchased the eyes from Coppergifts, but had to use a black food marker to make the pupils bigger.)
Have fun and make your own dinosaurs extinct!
