Character cookies, like these South Park cookies, can require a lot of colors but are worth it! Getting the characters just right can be tough, but there are a number of strategies that can help, such as royal icing transfers, stippling, or even using a Copy Cake. These were done freehand with a Google image search and a few guide points.
And don’t worry about finding just the right cookie cutter for the job. Basic shapes like squares, rectangles, circles, and curly squares are a staple for cookies like these.
These were goodbye cookies for a coworker.
