WATCH OUT FOR THE… SHARKNADO!!

(If you have no idea what I’m talking about, check this out)

A sequel is already planned for this hilariously awful franchise, entitled, “Sharknado 2: The Second One.” But, I was kinda hoping for another shark-related natural disaster. Like…

Hurrishark!

Sharknami!

Sharkquake!

…Norsharker?

Ok, maybe not that last one.

Sharknado Cookies by notyourmommascookie.com

I KNEW I had to make Sharknado cookies to celebrate the end of Shark Week. I mean, seriously. This is irrelevant pop culture at it’s finest – it draws me in like a moth to a flame. Or a shark getting sucked into a tornado. Same ‘dif.

Shark Week: Sharknado Cookies
 
Author:
Ingredients
  • Hand-cut sugar cookies shaped like tornadoes
  • Mini shark template for transfers (and a screen protector)
  • Royal icing, tinted white and gray
  • Black food coloring
  • Red food coloring
  • Small paintbrush (for food use only)
Instructions
  1. Create mini shark royal icing transfers (see my tutorial here). To achieve my gray, I used a small amount of black food coloring and a pinch of navy blue.
  2. Outline and flood tornado cookies with white icing. Let dry.
  3. Paint tornado onto cookies with black food coloring (you can also pipe these instead, if you prefer). Allow to dry.
  4. Attach mini sharks to tornado with royal icing.

hahahaha! these are hilarious! I finally tuned in yesterday for 2 very gruesome hours. Then I asked if we could change our Hawaiian vacation to a lake….they have a shark called a cookie cutter shark, only 20″ long….if I get bit it would be this one, total irony!

The acting is SO bad, but it is worth it for the hilariously awful moments :)

The one time I really wish we had cable: shark week. I should make cookies like this to help me get over my sadness on missing out on all the shark fun! Thank you for sharing. These are just adorable.

I’ve thought of giving up cable any times because of the cost, but I just don’t think we could handle it ;) You have my respect, for sure!
