What you need to recreate this dinosaur set of cookies

What little boy doesn’t love dinosaurs.  This is a very popular set of cookies, perfect for any birthday or special occasion.
When we create a set of decorated cookies at the Biscuit Studio, we often get asked what we used, colours, stencils, cutters etc   In this post we’ll be sharing all the products that are needed to recreate this dinosaur set. Each item used has a link to that specific product.

Lets start at the biscuit base

Firstly I use our non – stick rolling pin and guides (the yellow ones are the perfect height) to get an evenly rolled out piece of dough.  I place the cut out biscuits on our new ‘no bubbles mat’ this mat helps achieve a smooth, bubble free biscuit. . Also read through our blog post ‘getting the perfect base‘. if you are battling to get a perfect biscuit base. Purchase our biscuit & royal icing recipe online too

What cutters you’ll need, I’ve added extra cutters from this theme
Stegosaurus cookie cutter
Brontosaurus cookie cutter
Egg cookie cutter
Wood planks cookie cutter
Dino footprint cookie cutter

To create the ‘broken egg’ I cut the egg biscuit in half before baking with stegosaurus cutter, as per the image below

What gel colours I used
Avocado green gel 

Super black gel
Bright white gel
Ivory gel
Royal blue gel (use a tiny bit, add avo green & ivory gel to get a softer blue)
