Coca-Cola Polar Bear Cookie Tutorial

     I love the series of commercials that Coca-Cola plays at the holiday season every year of polar bears getting ready for Christmas.  They are so cute I had to make them into cookies!   I had decided that I wasn't going to post Christmas cookies before Thanksgiving and these don't count!   I'm sure the polar bears are up there drinking Coke year round.

To make these cookies you will need:
  • the sitting bear cookie cutter from the Wilton Baby Theme Cookie Cutter Set
  • white royal icing in a stiff piping consistency, a 15-20 count consistency, and a thinner flood consistency. 
  • black and red 15-20 count royal icing.
  • I made royal icing transfers for the Coca-Cola bottle and the red ball but cola flavored gummy candies are just the right size too!

  • For steps 1 and 2 outline the head and body of the polar bear with piping icing and flood.
  • When the base has dried for several hours add the ears and muzzle in 20 count royal icing and let the cookies dry overnight.  
  • Use a dot of icing to attach a dried Cola bottle icing transfer or gummi candy to the belly of the bear.  Outline the head, body, arms and feet in a sloppy jagged line with the stiff royal icing to create a "furry" edge. You can use a toothpick to pull some of the lines into little points here and there to add to the texture.
  • Finish the cookies by adding face details in black royal icing and add the pads to the feet in 20 count icing.  
My initial idea was to dust the pads of the feet with pink petal dust once they were dry but I wasn't sure I liked the effect so I didn't add it to all the cookies.  Which do you like better the pink feet or the white?

 I used the same general process as above to make the bear faces.  I cut the faces using a standing bear cookie cutter from the Wilton 101 Cookie Cutter Set. I then either trimmed the head with a round cookie cutter for some of the bear faces or hand cut the scarf for the others.
