A couple of weeks ago, a friend approached me about making some elephant cookies for a baby shower; she wanted some cute, whimsical elephants. Almost instantly I remembered this elephant on the cover of the book! It was used on a cake as a fondant decoration, and as a cookie. There was even a template included in the book.

I simply traced the template (adjusting it to the size I wanted) and transferred it to cardstock.  I then used the template, along with a small, sharp knife, and cut out the elephants from the sugar cookie dough. I made 30 elephants.

The colors for the shower were gray and cream. For the black details I used an AmeriColor food marker after the royal icing was completely dry.
I packaged each cookie in a cellophane bag, tied with twine.
When my friend picked them up she was super happy with the elephants.
Simply Perfect Party Cakes for Kids includes a dozen cakes (and some cupcakes and cookies) with detailed instructions and gorgeous photos.  I think next up for me will be the “Surf’s Up” cake or the Dessert Treat cookies.
There is definitely something to please everyone.
Simply Perfect Cakes is simply perfect!
