Baby shower octopus cookies by Bobbie Noto

Happy and fun octopus!

Last weekend I was asked to make the cookies for an under the sea baby shower.

The mother to be loves octopuses, the entire nursery is wonderfully painted with

ocean theme and several octopuses. I took some photos of the room and

then went back to my studio and began to design the cookies.

Normally, I prefer parchment cones, however because the entire cookie

is piped using a flood consistency, the disposable piping bags

are tighter around the nozzles. The icing will not leak from the bag!

Equipment:
• Piping nozzles
• -#0, PMe
• -#1, PME
• -#1.5, PME
