Math Cookies! and Learning Something New
These Math cookies on Pinterest from Nina Pacella were so cute(!) I had to make them! These cookies are cute for Math Day Mar. 4!) or for any day really -- and for any geek or mathematician! They can also help people learn something new.
Fun facts about math and Math Day at the bottom of the post. :)
I made sugar cookies and non-Royal Icing that I have made before.
Something new I used for these cookies was an edible marker. That helped me with fine details like drawing the plane and writing.
I let the background frosting set overnight before I painted and drew on the details.
We are good at this! They are so cute & geeky! I don't know which one is my favorite. I love the tangerine (sin / cos = tan) - haha! Geek! :) I also love the Snakes on a plane! Acute angle is just cute.
As I mentioned above, these cookies are cute for Math Day or for any day really -- and for any geek or mathematician any day! Some of the cookie design jokes are actually some pretty advanced concepts in math, so making them can encourage people to look up what they mean and learn something new too. :)
Give it a try! We are good at this!
