The elephant cookies for Sally's baby shower were the simple favors we gave out. I used SugarBelles Sugar cookie recipe and I also used her royal icing recipe
To make these cookies look like they had 3D ears I first made the ears on parchment paper and let them dry completely.
I cleaned up the edges once they dried but you can be more precise and not have to do this. Once they dried I carefully peeled them off the parchment and started on the next step....flooding the elephants.
Outline and fill each elephant with the icing color of your choice and while wet place an ear in the icing and the eye (which is a black pearl sprinkle)
Let dry for at least 24 hours before wrapping in a cellophane bag.
