So I decided to make a ham to represent them because Hamm is their last name. I made them out of Color Flow icing since I like it best for premade candy that I am going to put on a cookie.
I just put a drawing under my parchment paper and trace and fill around it. I did use a tiny bone from some Halloween decoration confetti instead of making my own. Let them dry at this stage overnight and then added dark brown piping. Not necessary but I just did.
I never use waxed paper to make these on because it sticks to the icing. ALWAYS use parchment. It releases as soon as the icing is dry.
There is a banner across the oval that says "SURVIVOR" on it. So in order to make sure all my letters were the right size and to make the decorating go that much faster, I premade the letters with the dark brown piping.
Super easy and so much better than trying to get it perfect on the cookie.
I let those dry and then put each letter in individual sections of a silicone icecube mold. (as in all the S's go into one section etc.) I use an angled tweezer to place them on the wet icing of each cookie.
First I drew lines on the cookies so I'd know where each section went.
I made 21. 4 different outline colors.
