How to Make Father's Day Pop Tart Cookies

If you know a dad that loves a fun pun or is full of dad jokes, I have a few new designs I think he'd love. One of them is this Pop Tart Toaster cookie set.

This cookie cutter set includes a pop tart pairing of a larger "dad" pop tart attached to a smaller "kid" tart, and a separate toaster design. The toaster is large enough to place a punny message for dads, Iike "You're the best, POP!"

I'll show how you can decorate both these cookie designs in the steps down below.

Pop Tart & Toaster Cookie Cutters

Just added to the shop is this new collection of Father's Day cookie cutters, including this Pop Tart Toaster cookie set.

For size references, I decorated both the REGULAR and the LARGE size cookie cutters. You can see both of these sizes in the picture at the end of this post to compare.

Template for the Pop Tart & Toaster Cookies

To help with the decorating process, I made a PDF template of all the new Father's Day cookie designs, including this pop tart & toast cookie set.

Click the link below for the downloadable template PDF file.

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 cutting out the template and tracing the design onto the cookie with an edible food marker.

The Decorating Process

For the colors used for these pop tart and toaster cookies, you will need the following suggested colors:

Pop Tart Cookies

Step 1

Begin by first applying a thin layer of tan icing. Let this icing set for about an hour.

Then add the pink and white "frosting" sections on top, as shown.

Step 2

Once the icing is dry, begin adding the face details. Add the black eyes of the kid tart and the the face of the dad tart. Only add one side of the mustache first.

Then, once the mustache had time to set (about 15 minutes), add the other side. Add the sprinkles detail and outline the pop tarts for dimension.

Toaster Cookies

Step 1

Begin by first filling in the light teal area of the toaster, then quickly add the darker teal area, as shown.

(Alternatively, you could just fill the toaster area with just the light teal icing and skip the dark color. It would look just as nice.)

Step 2

Once the icing is dry, draw in the "groove" with a food marker. Then add the black feet and the gray lever.

Lastly, outline the toaster body and add the pun message. I used a projector to help guide me on the letter outlines.
