Looking for jungle themed cookie cutters

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone. I'm making my cousins baby shower cake and want to make some cookies and take home gifts. I'm looking for possibly a lion, elephant and monkey. I found some online but they all seem to be the side view of the animals and i'd really like cookie cutters that are shaped like the animals faces.
Thanks in advance if you know where I might find any!

I haven't found any jungle animal face cutters except for a monkey. The ecrandal site has it I know for sure.

You really don't need specific animal cutters to do those faces though. For the monkey, take a large circle, and a very small circle cut in half (maybe like the big end of an icing tip). Lay out your big circle dough and on either side of it each half of the smaller circles for the monkey's ears.

For the elephant, I would use a heart cutter, and then with a knife just cut the bottom shape. I can't get pics to upload but here is a shape that might work with the heart:

For the lion, use some flower type of a cutter, like a sunflower. The outer petals would be the mane, and you could decorate the lion's face inside.

I've seen this Wilton set at Michael's with a lion, monkey and elephant face:

The price is right, too!

Also, I bought tons of animals from Sur La Table. They always have cutters for just $1! Fast shipping if you aren't local to a SLT store icon_smile.gif Only trouble is that is is sometimes hard to tell how big the cutters are. Some come and are huge (Grizzly bear!) and some are quite small (elephant). Rhino was super cute and about 3 1/2". Good luck!

Found the cookie cutters at Michaels today! They were 4.00 but so worth it.
