Graduation Owl Cookie Cutter Set

Just added to the shop for the upcoming spring season is this graduation owl cookie cutter set. (It also comes as a single grad owl cookie cutter design, as well.)

These sets will fit in this BRP cookie box (7" x 4 3/8" x 1.25").

Template for the Grad Cap & Diploma Cookies

To help with the decorating process, I made a PDF template of all the designs of this year's graduation cookie collection, including these cookie designs.

Click the link below for the downloadable template PDF file.

This file is rather large in data size. Just a warning, it might take a moment before the file opens in your browser.

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.

The Cookie Decorating Process

For these graduation owl cookies, you will probably match your cookies with the school colors of your event. However, if you're wondering what colors I used, I listed them below:

Step 1

For the head cookie, begin by filling in the top of the grad cap in blue icing and the head section in brown icing. Let this icing set for about an hour.

Then add the middle of the grad cap, the lower beak, and the lower part of the tassel, as shown. For the eyes, I did a wet-on-wet technique. You can see my exact method for these eyes in the video at the end of the post.

Step 2

Finish by adding the top ball of the tassel and the upper portion of the beak.

Step 3

For the body, begin by filling in the shirt section, as shown. Let this icing set for about an hour.

Then add the brown hand and the yellow sash/ hood.

Step 4

For personalization, I added a name using a projector.

Graduation Owl Cookie Video Tutorial

The steps above are summarized in this time-lapsed video I put together below.

Here's the 2-piece graduation owl cookie set all assembled.

If you prefer a single cookie design instead of the 2-piece option above, we have this single grad owl cookie cutter as well.

This is the LARGE size owl and I paired it with a top view grad cap cookie.

With personalized options and adorable designs, these cookies are the perfect way to honor any graduate. But why stop there? Check out our cookie cutter shop for more graduation-themed cookie cutter ideas and let's make this season unforgettable together.
