  • Your favorite sugar cookie dough
  • Royal icing (white and orange)
  • Black edible marker or icing
  • Cookie cutters in the shape of a cat’s head


  • Rolling pin
  • Baking sheets
  • Parchment paper
  • Piping bags
  • Fine piping tips


  1. Prepare the Dough:
    • Roll out your sugar cookie dough to an even thickness. Use your cat head-shaped cookie cutters to cut out shapes and transfer them to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  2. Bake the Cookies:
    • Follow your sugar cookie recipe for the temperature and time. Bake until the edges are just golden. Let them cool completely after baking.
  3. Decorate with Royal Icing:
    • Outline and fill the face area with white royal icing using a piping bag with a fine tip. Allow it to set slightly before adding any details.
  4. Add Details:
    • While the white icing is still tacky, add small triangles of orange icing for the ears.
    • Once the base layer is dry, use the black edible marker or icing to draw closed eyes, whiskers, and a cute nose.
  5. Finishing Touches:
    • Let the cookies dry completely to ensure the icing sets and the details won’t smudge.

Baker’s Tips:

  • Ensure your royal icing is the right consistency: not too runny so it holds its shape, but fluid enough to settle into a smooth surface.
  • If using an edible marker, make sure the icing is completely dry to prevent the tip from clogging.
  • Practice your designs on parchment paper before moving on to the cookies if you’re not confident with your piping skills.

Conclusion: These homemade cat cookies are a sweet addition to any gathering, or to brighten your day. With their cute expressions and customizable designs, they’re as fun to make as they are to eat. So grab your apron and bring these kitty cookies to life!
