Of my eight grandchildren, five are boys, and though I love all the frilly hearts and lace that arrive with Valentine's Day, I thought the boys might like these robots more:)
The design is courtesy of Bridget (Bake at 350) by way of her book, Decorating Cookies. I am really enjoying the book which is quite user-friendly. This is the second cookie I've made from it and I LOVE how they turned out! Here's the first cookie, if you're interested.
He's a rather cute and cuddly robot, don't ya think? And as it states up above, he's programmed for love.
Since the robots are made up of squares and rectangles mostly, it was easy to put them onto the cookies...I made a template on a piece of paper (according to the size of my rectangle cutter), cut it out, placed it on each sugar cookie and traced around it with an Americolor edible marker. I was then able to easily outline/fill the cookies with royal icing.
I had so much fun watching these robots take shape, and I hope my little guys love them as much as I do!
Perhaps your own little (or big) Valentines will enjoy them too!
