I had a milestone birthday yesterday and a party last night to celebrate. So, I made a bunch of these cookies to go on the snack table, because they call me T-rex.



I made them skeletal to get in on the old jokes.   Wink

Thank you!

Thanks!  The cutter came with a set of dinos and now I'll probably do them all this way.

you old fossil you!  haha  okay just kidding.  those are pretty awesome though and good for you that you can make fun of yourself

Not only was this funnier than if I'd decorated them "alive," it was faster and not so intensely sweet was if the whole surface were covered with royal icing.

Those are super cute!

Thank you!  They were fun to make.

I love this idea for dino cookies!!   Happy belated birthday!

Thanks!  Much faster: no dye, quick to pipe.  And thanks for the belated wishes!

i was just thinking they would be a lot less sweet, and perfect for hubby's next birthday... or moms, or Dads... And they'd all enjoy them more, since they wouldn't be covered in sweet sweet icing.  And you are welcome!

My little one is currently obsessed with "dino-RAWR" (he thinks its one word). I will have to file this idea away for his birthday.

Thanks!  I usually make shortbread to decorate, but misplaced my recipe somewhere, so made sugar cookies this time.  However, the shortbread is even less sweet.  More butter, though, and I think a bit too brittle for things like his tiny arms.

What's weird is that I never thought of icing the dino cutter cookies any other way!  Isn't it funny how everyone's mind works differently?

Natural history museum wedding?!  That sounds fantastic!  Did you post photos?  I'd love to see, if so.

All my friends would fall off their chairs laughing if they heard someone suggested I sell food.  I bake, but I DO NOT COOK and the idea of me selling even baked goods is kind of hysterical.  Thanks!  Also, in my state you have to have a certified kitchen by the health dept to sell human food and there's no way I could get that with 2 dogs and a cat.  Wink

Ha!  Thanks!  I think I want to be known for making sugar cookies.   Roll Eyes  Whenever I mail things to my nieces or nephews the return address says "Auntie T-rex" and when they mail to me it's addressed to T-rex.  Often the postal worker chuckles and asks me about that and I say, "Because I big and ferocious with little tiny arms" then I hold my arms against my ribs and wiggle them helplessly.  I didn't really ever thing about the irony of that until now; my arms and legs are of the long variety.  Love to see 'em if you make 'em!

Here are my contributions, my icing skills were clearly not up to par but I was distracted by a 3-year-old...


My T-Rex that apparently fossilized with it's last meal in it's stomach.


My hideously bad stegosaurus that looks more like a zombie than a skeleton because I wanted to use some store-bought icing left over from Halloween.


A Christmas tree cleverly disguised as a prehistoric fern for the stegos to eat.


Because I just couldn't stop myself once I had a theme going, the flaming comet that killed/zombified the dinosaurs.
