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:

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