Pussy Hat Feminist Sugar Cookies Tutorial

I may not be able to knit, but I can make a pretty darn cute facsimile of a knit hat out of cookie and royal icing (recipe here)!

I didn't have a cookie cutter shaped like a pussy hat, but I improvised by making a template out of paper.  Pink paper, of course.

I just cut around the template with a sharp paring knife.  The edges are a little rougher than you'd get with a cookie cutter, but rough edges never hurt anyone.

Use a small, round icing tip to pipe the knitted texture on a cookie already covered in a base coat of royal icing.

Thin out some food coloring with Everclear (preferable) or vodka, and paint the color on.  Doesn't it look like a knit cap made with gorgeous varieagated yarn?

To see how I made the pussy-hat-wearing-cat cookies, head to page three.
