So today I have a pretty big announcement for my humble little cookie blog. I am excited (and quite terrified) to tell you that I have started making my own line of cookie cutters. I've opened a little Etsy shop to sell them and here is my first set:
All the cutters are handmade by me in my home studio. They are stainless steel so they shouldn't tarnish or rust. I can make them pretty quickly but still these are "limited edition" in the sense that I can only make so many at a time. Hopefully these little fellows represent just the beginning of my line and there will be many fun things to come.
Anyhoo, let me show you the cutters;
This jaunty boy gnome is 5.5 inches tall, and while that may be a tad big I designed him especially to have this big ol' hat so you could easily adapt him into lots of other characters.
If you gently curl the unbaked dough you can give him a totally different look. Or trim the hat off entirely.
Here's the lady gnome cookie cutter to match. She's the same size and width of course so they can go together.
You can get so many fun little guys out of these cutters. When I was designing them I wanted a cutter that could easily work for all the fall holidays. To push your creativity don't think of one just as a "boy" and the other as a "girl". The short coat on the boy gnome is also a little girl's dress. The long dress on the girl can be a cloak or a coat for wizards and clowns!
I've also made a fun chubby owl cutter. After you cut the dough if you rotate the cutter and cut again you can make a cute little plaque. (For more information on cutting plaques, visit this post)
And a mushroom cutter to round out a woodland cookie platter! To say this is all a huge learning curve for me would be a massive understatement. I hapily welcome any feedback you can give me! I will be posting tutorials for using the cutters over the next week as well as a really good way of easily cutting a whole bunch of different hats so stay tuned!
Here are the links for my store;
