I recently had to take my very nearly teenaged son to an oral surgeon for a bit of a procedure. He's pretty much too cool for everything on the planet that doesn't involve games or his friends. I'm sure it comes as a huge shock to everyone that he was not even remotely excited to be there. The promise of a week of ice cream didn't even dent his disinterest.

You know what DID come as a shock to me though? They were READY FOR US. We were in the waiting room for 5 minutes. And when they called us back, everyone was there and ready to go. My son didn't even have a spare second to get nervous. I could NOT have been more grateful.

Parenting is hard enough. I's Monday morning and I've already picked up my youngest from school because she "has the cough."

 I'm not even joking. I walked into the school office and she literally jumped up into my arms and said, "Can I have cheesy chips?"

She's clearly very ill and needs all of my full love and attention today.

Luckily I already made and packaged up these gems for a thank you gift for OMS of Utah (If you are local - I seriously recommend them!!) because I have a looooong day of magnets and play dough and the very mysterious "crafting" ahead of me today!

step by step cookie decorating tutorial for a surgeon or dentist cookie

How to make surgeon or dentist decorated sugar cookies: 

Step 1. 

Turn the cutter upside down and use a food color marker to trace what is now the top curve of the cutter. This will give you a guide line for the next step.

Step 2.

Using the line you just drew, outline and fill the top half of the cookie with a medium consistency blue icing and a #3 tip. Outline and fill the bottom section of the cookie as well, leaving a small gap in the center for the face. Let dry for an hour.

Step 3.

Fill in the center section of the cookie with a medium consistency skin colored icing. Let dry for at least 6 hours.

Step 4.

Pipe two dots of black icing for the eyes. Immediately add two smaller dots of white icing to the top right edge of each eye. Add eyebrows with a black food color marker. Pipe the surgical mask details with the blue icing and a #1.5 tip.

See it all come together in this surgeon - dentist cookie decorating video tutorial.
