hi...have to make cookies based on egyptian theme..can anyone give me some ideas..i was thinking of doing mummy shaped ones, and also pyramids but have no clue about making the pyramids one..any ideas and tips on how to go about it???? thanks...
You could do the pharros (sp??) head with all of the gold and various colors, a cat, the coffin type tombs. I don't think there's cutters for most of those but you could look for templates. I think it would be fun to decorate the faces with all of their eye-makup. Good luck!
how about an ankh (you can google a pic of it)?
edible gold paint to decorate with?
maybe for the pyramids, you could do them 3D - make 4 triangles and glue them together with RI like a gingerbread house?
there probably aren't many cutters for eqyptian shapes, but you could stick with simple squares or circles and just decorate them like they're a picture in a frame. GeminiRJ has done some like that recetly and they look great and it saves having to buy alot of different cutters.
thanku so much everyone for ur kind help...i think making square cookies and then deorating wth RI is good idea...though i'm very bad at drawing facial features...so i'll stick to other motifs!!! Ursala ur cookies are amazing ... wish i can make queens like those...but they must be time comsuming??? wud luv to make 3d pyramids too but then again, so time and effort involved and mine r ordered for charity and i have to make then for less than 40$'s for like 75 cookies!!! wish me luck!
Ooh I love the eye
