Supplies Needed to Make Quarantine Hair Cookie Set:

- Variety of different people/faces cookie cutters
- Mini paisley cookie cutter
- Royal icing colors for eyes (white, black and iris colors of choice)
- Skin tone royal icing
- Hair color royal icing
Making Quarantine Hair:
Plan out cookie designs in pencil before committing to icing. Try out different colors and types of hair on cookies. You can practice by making hair swatch cookies using the paisley cutter. Now for the funny part, add roots in grey, black or even white.
Moving on to the face, pipe outline with pipe consistency and fill with flood icing. While icing is still wet, add royal icing eye transfer. Eyes should be in line with the top of the ears. Allow icing to set up for about 15 minutes.
Using the same skin tone icing, pipe eye lids above eyes. Pipe a dot for the nose and using a scribe or toothpick, pull the dot upwards towards the eyes.
Next, pipe elongated circles for ears on side of head in skin tone. Then pipe mouth with red. Allow cookies to dry overnight.
Now add some expression to the face by piping eyebrows above the eyes. Using an edible marker, CAREFULLY draw in lashes. Lastly, add a brush stroke of petal dust at the check.
