Every once in a while I’ll have a cookie moment like I did with these nerf gun cookies.
Someone will ask me to make cookies for their event and I enthusiastically agree. Then, not long after our conversation I will think to myself:
‘nerf gun cookies? Really? What was I thinking? I’ve probably picked up a nerf gun maybe twice in my life. What colour is a nerf gun? Do I even have a cookie cutter that resembles the shape of a nerf gun?’
Well, in case you have also had a similar conversation, this is how I made nerf gun cookies:
The answer to the cookie cutter question is no, I do not have a cookie cutter that even closely resembles a nerf gun. In the end I found an image on google that I liked, printed it and cut it out, then used that as a template to hand cut the dough.
4. Flood the bottom of the handle with black icing, and add details to the black icing that is already dry
5. Add grey detail to the handle and to the edges of the cookies
6. Add orange detail to the trigger, an orange blob on the front, and write ‘nerf’ in the top grey section
Then let the icing fully dry before handling.
