Monkey Baby Shower – part 1

Posted by on Sep 20, 2009 in Baby, Cookies, My Cakes |

These cookies were made for my sister’s baby shower this weekend.  She calls her baby her little monkey 🙂  So we did monkey things for the shower.

I am doing cookies for a baby shower and the theme is monkeys/jungle and I was wondering if you could tell me how you did the monkey on the front of your onesies. Did you use royal icing? Color flow? How did you get the base brown so dark?

The show is this weekend so any help would be greatly appreciated!

Yes I used royal icing for those – a medium/thick consistency. Whenever I do brown icing (royal or buttercream), I add in sifted cocoa powder to start with. Then I use brown food colorant to darken it up. Remember that icing colors will darken as they set so sometimes its good to color the icing the day before and let it sit overnight. Then see if it is as dark as you want it to be. If not, add more color.
