What Does the Fox Say?! {fox cookies using a butterfly cutter}

I'm sure everyone has heard the funny/slightly annoying song 'What does the fox say'.. my two year old LOVES it and asks for it every time we get in the car! He is constantly singing it and dancing around the house. I confess, I like it too. So I had to make some fox cookies.

To make these you will need:
* a butterfly cookie cutter
* orange 20-second icing (check out this tutorial here)
* black 20-second icing
* white 20-second icing
* ivory 20-second icing
* fine tipped paintbrush

Once you've cut the bottom of the butterfly off with the top of the butterfly cutter, press the little jagged edge at the bottom until it's smooth

Using your 20-second orange icing, make the outline to the face. Wait for 15 minutes, then fill in the ears and rest of the fox's face. 

Add a black nose and eyes once the cookie is dry (give it at least 6 hours). I used brush embroidery around the face. Out of pure laziness I didn't make a thicker icing to do the brush embroidery and it would've been much cuter if I would have! Oh well, lesson learned :). 

The last step is to pain on little black eyelashes and you are done!

There you have it! Happy fall ya'll.
