You Butter My Toast

 TKT's Toast-aly Punny Cutters

If you follow us on our social media accounts, you've probably heard of Cookie Cutter Kingdom. They make all of our custom 3D printed cutters (my father in law helps us out when I need something in a megarush). We found each other right when we were both starting out. I'm the loyal type and they are too so we formed a partnership and we've been together ever since. Over the last three years, we'd talked many times about doing a Tiny Kitchen Treats cookie cutter set, but like so many other girl bosses who are also moms, my days are long, but never long enough. 

With our Brit + Co cookie class release, came the requests for our custom cutters. While you can absolutely print out the templates and hand cut cookies, it's time consuming and laborious. My student's requests were the push I needed to finally start on designing our first ever cookie cutter set.

I knew I wanted to do one of the cookies from the class, but I also wanted to tie it into a theme and make sure there weren't other cutters like them out there. And so I give you the cutest set of cookies I've ever seen. I know mother's always say that about their children, but have you ever seen anything so adorable? 


Anyhow, I also wanted to include a guide to making them so you guys can follow along. Let me know if you have any questions in the comment section below.

Happy Decorating!


  • Custom TKT Cutters* Toaster with toast, knife, butter stick on dish (optional 3” toast cutter)
  • 11 Piping Bags*  I like CCK tipless, because they are high quality and will not burst, but in a pinch you CAN use Ziploc bags and of course you can use piping bags with couplers or tipples with tips- use what you are comfortable with/what you’ve got!)
  • Wilton Gel Food Coloring: teal, ivory, brown, black, pink, electric pink, yellow, white, grey
  • Silver luster dust (please make sure you are using EDIBLE stuff!)
  • Knife or offset spatula
  • Small brush (used for food only)
  • A small fan (or a big one)
  • Spray Bottle
  • Bowls & spoons
  • Coffee mug, cup or glass

*Available at

Butter Knife

1.     Outline knife sections in grey piping.

2.     Fill every other section with grey flood.


3.     Place under fan and wait at least 10 minutes so that a crust forms. We need that for     dimension!

4.     Now fill in remaining sections, place under fan again and set aside.

5.     Allow to dry 6-7 hours*

6.     Mix vodka and luster dust and paint on. The key here is a couple of light coats instead of one very heavy one.

7.     Now add your “butter” with your yellow piping icing. Then, using a knife or offset spatula, shmear (that’s a word, right?) it around like you would on real butter.


Butter Stick & Dish

1.     Using your white flood and yellow flood, outline all the sides of your lil butter stick and dish.

2.     Ice every other side, alternating sections that don’t touch and waiting 10-15 minutes in between


3.     Once complete, set aside and allow your cookie to dry for at least 4-5 hours.

4.     With your black icing, pipe on eyes by adding black dots and immediately adding a tiny white glimmer.

5.     Pipe a tiny mouth and a tiny cheek on each side with your pink  pipingicing.

Toaster & Toast

1.     With your teal icing, flood toaster “body” leaving a thin strip on bottom naked.


2.     Then, using your brown piping, outline your toast’s “crust”


3.     Set aside for 10-15 minutes.

4.     Flood your toast with light ivory icing.


5.     Lay down a strip of grey piping at the bottom and add two “tracks” for your toaster sliders (I have no idea what this is called, but the picture says it all!)

6.     Add knobs. I did silver then changed my mind to black, but do whatever makes you happy J

7.     Allow to dry for 10-15 minutes, paint all silver details.

8.     Fill your tracks with black icing.

9.     Set aside to dry 18-24 hours

10.  Once your toast and toaster are nice and dry, add your toaster’s face and pipe on your message.


TKT Tips and Reminders

Be sure to place your cookies under a fan when indicated, since small pools of icing tend to crater under the weight of the crust that forms. The fan helps the entire bit dry quickly, giving it a more solid interior that can resist the weight of your crust.

If you have a steady hand and good eye, you can wait less time before adding details. Just beware that icing that isn’t dry all the way through is more delicate!

Drying times can always be speed up with your handy dandy fan.

Bright Ideas

Change the message to suit your punny needs, ex: You’re the Butter to My Jam and then add butter to one toast cookie and jam to the other!

Want your butter to look like its melting? Add a” butter halo” by using a wet on wet technique and adding yellow flood right after you flood your toast cookie. Don’t want a melty pad of butter on your toast? Shmear it on just like you did to your knife


Snowy NYC Nights


Have you ever had an idea rattling inside your head, just waiting to be brought to life? Well, it happens to me a lot. Finding the time to execute those ideas is challenging, but I stole an hour away from my orders to cookie the city I love the most by putting it into a magical snow globe cookie. What I like about this custom cookie is that it can be any city, scene, or monument. They can be passed around for Secret Santa, given as a Chanukah gift, used as Christmas tree ornaments ( cut a small hole into the top before baking), and, of course, eaten!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  •  Rolling Pin (guides will help keep your dough an even thickness. 
  • Your Favorite Cookie Dough Recipe
  •  CookieCutterKingdom’s Snow Globe Cookie Cutter (I prefer 4” since we are doing a detailed  cookie)
  • Royal Blue AmeriColor Gel Food Coloring
  • Black Americolor Gel Food Coloring
  • Piping Bags/Piping Bottles
  • Decorating Tips 1 & 2
  • Optional: Silver Luster Dust and a little bit of Vodka (for decorating…and maybe a little for drinking)

Start by rolling out your cookie dough to 3/8” thick and use your snow globe cookie cutter to make a nice, clean cut by pressing it down and giving it a little side to side wiggle.  

While your cookies are cooling, make grey and white royal icing. Piping consistency for the grey and 15 second for both. Piping icing is the consistency of a smooth soft serve ice cream and holds a soft peak. 15 second icing refers to the length of time it takes a line, cut into the icing with a spoon, to disappear.

Begin decorating by outlining the globe with your grey piping consistency royal icing. I like to put anything for outlining or writing into a piping bag- either tipless or the regular- depending on whether I think I’ll need to use the same icing for different uses or not. In this case, I didn’t so I used my handy dandy tipless bags.

Then, using the same color, but this time as 15 second icing, pipe the snow globe’s base. Let it dry for a good 10 minutes or until you see that the outer layer has dried enough so that you can add the top and bottom of the base and get that nice dimension. I use my handy dandy icing bottles for this kind of stuff because I find that it’s less messy (Decorating tip size 2/3 will do the job).

Using silver luster dust mixed with vodka , paint the base and outline of the snow globe. Make sure to use vodka and not water. Why? Well, because the vodka evaporates quickly (due to its alcoholic content) so your sugar doesn’t melt. Water is dry royal icing’s arch nemesis and will eat through your nice smooth finish (this can also happen with vodka, so be sure not to use too much), but who could blame it. I mean, your biggest challenge here is going to be not eating this cookie while you make it.

Fill the snow globe with white royal icing (decorating tip size 2 or 3). I used 15 second here as well. I find that anything thinner encourages overflow and air bubbles.

Let this dry as long as possible, preferably overnight, but 6-9 hours will do. This way, you don’t have to sweat bullets while you’re painting. I’ve done it with the icing not dry all the way through so it’s possible, but it’s really suboptimal since a slight bit of too much liquid or pressure could break your icing. **If this happens, don’t worry- take a knife or a small spatula and scrape it off and start again.

Dilute royal blue gel food coloring (I like to use AmeriColor) with vodka and get your Bob Ross on. This can be a light blue sky, like at dusk, or a deep midnight blue. I found that the deeper blue provided for more contrast with the **SPOILER ALERT** glitter and snowflakes.

Now paint on your sky line with black gel food coloring mixed with vodka. This is where you can kind of do your own thing and paint something from your hometown or favorite city.

Using the same 15 second royal icing, but with Ateco tip 1 or 2 (1 is better since it will allow for easier control/smaller detail), dot snow onto your skyline. The secret here is to make the snow random and in different sizes.

Now sit back and enjoy your little work of art.  Remember that you too can whip up your own bright idea and make it your own. Happy treat making!
