How I Made the Cutest Army Man Cookie using My Sweet Sugarbelle Shape Shifters

When I began my cookie hobby I was strictly someone who saw a cookie cutter and only saw the one image it was made to be.  Example, I have a fish cutter, all I saw was a fish.  I was very much only focused on the cutter and how it was initially created.  Over time, and several dozen cookies later I’m a changed woman!  I learned to “shape shift” from none other than Sweet Sugarbelle.  She is the creator of the Sweet Sugarbelle Shape Shifters cookie cutters.  Each of her cookie cutters can be shifted into 2 or more designs simply using a single cookie cutter or merging multiple cutters together.  It’s truly amazing what she has created and helped me to start thinking outside the box when it comes to my cookie creations.

This week I had an Army birthday party cookie set.  I was a little intimidated when I first took it but began getting more and more excited about the challenge.


I used this little guy when I cut out my dough.

Once my cookies were baked it was time to get started icing.. my favorite!  I started by adding a head, ears, hands, and little pants.

I let them dry overnight.  This is such an important thing I’ve learned as I have done more and more cookies.  My icing needs time to dry between the layers which is part of the reason most home cookiers cannot promise a cookie set without a week’s notice.  There is just a lot of time that goes into these beautiful works of art.

Okay, about 8 hours later I came back to these cuties and needed to add his hat, shirt, shoes, and face.

Look at how handsome he’s coming along!  Now the last step was to add more camouflage to his shirt and I was calling him complete!


Eat your heart out!  I really don’t know if I could be any more proud of these sweet cookies.  I cannot wait for my sweet customer to see these with her completed set.

Be on the lookout for the other cookies that went with this set in my weekly cookie recap post going up soon!

Let me know what you think!
