The Cow Jumped over the Moon


Remember the “Hey Diddle Diddle” cookies we started the other day here?  We worked on the Cat and the Fiddle then.  Now it’s time to add some more characters, because everyone needs some friends, right? Poor little kitty needs a few.

Today, let’s work on the next part of the rhyme– “The Cow Jumped over the Moon.”

What are we waiting for?  Let’s do this!

I decided to go with another silhouette, because I was trying to match the Cat cookies from yesterday. To begin with, you need to sketch out your design. 

Then, just like with the Cat cookies, we need to start with several large white circle cookies.

Outline and flood your cookies in white, and then let them dry for about 30 minutes before you begin the next part.
Just like yesterday, we are going to use the “ole nail trick.”  Put your flower nail on the cookie and outline with royal blue.  You don’t need to worry about the bottom of the cookie, since that will be covered with the black icing.  You want the darkest parts of color to be on the edges of the cookie.  It might help to start coloring the edge and work inward, instead of around the nail, first.
This will make you a nice, full moon.
Cover the moon, again, and make sure that the blue is dry before you do.  Add a twinge of black to the edges to make the sky really night-like and ombre.  We will add stars later.
When your cookie has dried 24 hours, go ahead and pipe on some silhouette details– I did some pine trees and a cow.  Use a small tip (I used #1) to add some stars to your night sky.
And there you have it!  The cow jumping over the moon! 🙂  So which do you like better– the cat or the cow?

 

Either way, you did it!  And I’m just so proud of you!
