Time to bake some cookies! The polymer clay unicorn cookies for the doll Unicorn Café are super easy to make. All polymer clay used for these cookies is Sculpey III.
Below is the picture used for inspiration for our doll sized unicorn cookies.
1. Get started by softening tan clay with your hands. Using a rolling machine, roll out clay on thickest setting. On my machine this is setting 1. I brushed the surface of my clay with baby powder to prevent sticking. You can also use cornstarch if baby powder is unavailable.
I purchased by clay machine from A.C. Moore for $9 with a coupon.
Here is what the fondant cutters look like packaged. I got mine at Michaels.
2. Using a small round fondant cutter that was pictured above (mine is 7/8inch in diameter) cut out the center of your cookie. This is the smallest cutter in your set. Cut out a horn and two ears with an exacto knife to desired shape and size.
I have mini clay cutters from Michael’s that had a great horn and ear shape when cut down. *Tip – if using mini cutters have a few qtips on hand to help push clay out of cutter; do softly so you do not leave an indention in the clay. *Tip – coat mini cutters in baby powder or cornstarch to prevent sticking.
3. Attach the horn and ears to the main circle cookie base by very slightly overlapping edges and gently pushing together. Flip cookie over to make sure there aren’t any gaps on the back side. Then flip back to front side.
4. Use a small round tip tool and create a small circular depression in each ear.
5. Roll out white clay to create frosting. I used roller 5 on my machine. Use the scalloped side of you 7/8 inch fondant cutter. Lay on top of cookie. The clay will adhere together permanently once baked. After white frosting layer is in place, use a flat tool and make angled impressions in your horn.
6. Now to make the unicorn frosting hair! Hand roll out colors of choice into pointed narrow strips. Cut to desired length and arrange on cookie.
7. Arrange on cookie sheet and bake at 250° for 11 minutes. Let cool.
8. I used a Uniball gold pen to add gold color to the horn and ears. I lightly sketched out the eyes with a pencil and went over with a fine tip black sharpie marker. Once marker is completely dry you can lightly erase any visible pencil. I used pink craft chalk and a qtip and added a little blush to each unicorn cookie cheek.
This final tip is not necessary, but I did use PYM II sealant over the unicorn cookies when finished.
We love how the doll unicorn cookies turned out! For more information on the doll Unicorn Café see here: http://brandyshappyhome.com/the-doll-room/unicorn-cafe/
