It's available in a number of sizes but for this tutorial I'll be decorating the REGULAR size.
Templates to Help Decorate Bass Fish Cookies Easily
To help with the decorating process, I made a PDF template available for the new Father's Day cookie designs, including this fishing cookie cutter set.
You can download these cookie templates HERE.
If you have a Kopykake or Pico projector, just print it out (or pull it up on your mobile device) and you are good to go. For those without a projector, follow the suggested steps below by tracing the design onto the cookie with an edible food marker.
How to Decorate Bass Fish Cookies
For the colors used for these bass fish cookies, you will need the following suggested colors:
- Dark Green royal icing (I mixed Americolor Laurel, Americolor Electric Green, and a touch of Americolor Warm Brown.)
- Light Green icing (I mixed the dark green icing above with fresh white icing.)
- Dark Brown icing (I mixed Americolor Chocolate Brown with Americolor Super Black.)
- Tan icing (I mixed Americolor Gold with Americolor Electric Green and a touch of Chocolate Brown.)
- Red icing (I used Americolor Tulip Red.)
- White icing (I used Americolor Bright White.)
- Black icing (I used Americolor Super Black.)
Begin by filling in the white empty space. (This is optional. Feel free to leave it bare.) Let this icing set.
Next, fill in the body of the fish cookie. I first started with the darker green sections, then I immediately flooded the light green section. Shake the cookie to smooth the surface together.
Once the body section had time to dry, fill in the fin sections. Use light green on the exterior of the body and dark green for the center fin.
Finish the cookie by outlining the smile and the body, add the eye as well. For a final touch, draw on the fin lines with this green food pen.

Cookie Packaging Ideas
Here's the complete 4-piece fishing set including a bass fish cookie, a fishing vest cookie, a fishing pole cookie, and a fish tackle box cookie. For cookie packaging idea, I happy with this box I found pictured below.
For the REGULAR size cookie set, like I used in this post, a 4-piece set would fit nicely in this 8"x8"x1.5" cookie box from BRP Box Shop. The lid is attached to the bottom of the box, which I find convenient.
Giving a personalized Father's Day gift to that special person in your life is great way to show dad how much you appreciate him this Father's Day.
