Steps for making coral cookies
Based on the artful form of the natural spike coral, this cookie lends an aquatic note to the Life’s a Beach Cookie set. With an aqua background, the white coral really pops. It’s a simple cookie to make but adds so much to the set.
Steps for making sea star cookies
Undoubtedly, sea stars are some of the most unusual creatures you can find in the tide pool. We could spend hours watching them move. These echinoderms come in many shapes, sizes, and colors. But it is the sea star’s texture and pattern that makes this alluring to create in cookie form.
Steps for making seashell cookies
No matter how far from the ocean you are, you can still hold a this type of seashell up to your ear and hear the roar of the waves rolling onto the shore. Can’t you imagine it now? The best shells for producing this sound are the large, spiral conch shells.
Steps for making sand dollar cookies
There is nothing more exciting than walking along the shore and finding a complete sand dollar. Without a doubt, it makes you feel like you found a million bucks. Although these sea creatures do not start out white, after the creature dies, its skeleton becomes bleached by the sun and the star design becomes more prominent.
Steps for making Life’s a Beach board cookies
Some things are just meant to be used as decorations. For example, who could resist the charm and beauty of driftwood? With this in mind, we had to use a driftwood background for our statement cookie to complete the Life’s a Beach Cookie set.
These cookies are so cute!
