Mermaid Art Wafer Paper Cookies



I have been meaning to make vintage mermaid cookies for a long, long time, but only got around to it last week. These images are from mermaid book illustrations, postcards, and even an advertising card, all dating from the first two decades of the 20th century.

I made these with Sugarbelle's Sugar Cookie Dough, using a Rectangular Cookie Cutter (2.375" x 3.5"), which the nice folks at CheapCookieCutters.com made for me upon request last year. I piped and flooded the cookies with white Royal Icing and, when it was hard, wafer-papered them and piped a border for them with a #16 star tip.








The wafer papers are available at my shop.
