I had to make 300 heart-shaped wedding cookies yesterday and ended up with 15 extra (I baked extra in case of breakage and amazingly didn't break any). So, I was left with these 15 heart cookies and it's not Valentine's Day. I was trying to figure out how to decorate them for sale in the bakery. I know about the wedding bride and groom you can make out of hearts, but I didn't need those. I ended up just swirling some purple and white royal icing on them and putting them out. But, it got me many other things can you do with a heart shape? Or, for that matter, how many cookie cutters do we all have that can double as another shape? I made turkeys out of oak leaves in the fall, and I have a cornucopia that I can use as a Red Wings symbol. I also have a snail that looks like a whale if you decorate it differently.

Anyone else care to help stretch out cookie cutters out and make them more useful?

You can also use the heart cutter to make a female's bust with a bikini top or a female's bottom, but I have never done them. I have seen them on CC.

I have a sombrero cutter that I use as a bull.

you can make dragon heads out of heard(on old wilton yearbook)the heart goes sideways, there's a mouth and nostrils and leaf tip spines-i made them for a bake sale. i have some extra hearts and use not typical vday colours like bright purple and teal...circles (i guess that's kinda obvious lol)oh i just remembered seeing bikini tops and bottoms out of heart (heart up with bikini top is the chest, point down and the bikini bottom is the bum hehe)

I've made corn from the hand cutter--squeeze three middle fingers together for cob, pinky and thumb are green stalk(sorry, no pic).
Santa going down the chimney uses tombstone cutter (rounded top removed) and legs from gingerbread man cutter.
