heroes in a half shell

i love that so many toys and characters from the 80s are totally cool again. my little pony? teenage mutant ninja turtles? strawberry shortcake? it's like i'm 10 again. 

i did TMNT-themed cookies for my friend mommybelle last year, but they were simpler - pizzas to represent the turtles' favorite food. this time, when i was asked for cookies with a turtles theme, i went all out.

not wanting to buy a special cutter, i went on a hunt through my stash and came up with these:


those peeps ears would be perfect to create the turtles' masks. here's what the cut dough looked like:


after perusing some other ideas via google images, i got my black icing out and started the outline. 


with the bean's help, i achieved the perfect green for the face and started filling it in. 


the rest of it was super easy after that. i filled in the masks using the TMNT's four different colors and their eyes, added a few more details, and voila:


they looked great all wrapped up and tied with matching ribbons. 


turtle ninjas. so funny!
