How to Make Cameo Cookies From a Mold

I don't know about you guys, but I just can't make myself turn on my oven right now. It's like my oven is telepathic.

Under The Sea Creatures -- Cookies and Cards

You guys know this is my favorite day of the month! I get to peruse my cousin's fantastic paper creation blog and then recreate one of them in sugar form. I actually made these awhile and I have been SAVING them for some reason that even I don't comprehend. And also I may have forgotten I had them for awhile.
