As a kid, one of the exciting aspects of going back to school is sporting your new gear. I loved having a fresh start with brand new school supplies and a new backpack to hold it all. That's why I think this new Teddy Bear Backpack design is so relatable.

This cute teddy bear is all geared up with its backpack, ready for school to start again.

This cookie design is available in a number of sizes, and is available as a two-piece or a single cookie design. For this tutorial, I'll be decorating the LARGE two-piece option. However, the same decorating steps apply to the single piece as well.

Just added to the shop for the upcoming Back-to-school season is this Teddy Bear Backpack design.

The cookie cutters are available in Regular and Large sizes.

Template for the Teddy Bear Backpack Cookie Set

To help with the decorating process, I made a PDF template of all of the new Back-to-school cookie cutters, including this teddy bear design.

You can download all the 2021 Back-to-School 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.

The Decorating Process

For the colors used for these teddy bear cookies, you will need the following suggested colors:

Step 1

For the head cookie, begin by flooding the main face section. Let this icing set for 15 minutes.

Then fill in the ear sections and add the tan snout.

Step 2

Next, finish the face off by adding the black eyes, nose, and tan eyebrows.

Draw on a smile with a food pen.

Step 3

For the body cookie, start by filling in the belly area. Add the brown left side and then quickly add the tan belly for a smooth surface.

Then add the feet area and first backpack section. Let this icing set up for 15 minutes.

Step 4

Next, add the arm detail, as shown. Also add the left backpack pocket.

Follow up by adding the shoulder strap and finish by adding the outline details, as shown.

Video Tutorial

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

When the two pieces are assembled together, the completed teddy bear should look like the one below.

For packaging ideas, this LARGE set would fit nicely in these 7 1/2″ x 5 3/8” boxes from ClearBags. (Shown below on the left)

For the REGULAR size, the teddy set will fit great in this BRP cookie box (7" x 4 3/8" x 1.25"). (Shown below on the right.)

As an alternative, if 2-piece puzzle cookies aren't your thing, I did make a smaller, single-piece version.

I paired it with this simple pencil cookie cutter design for messaging. All of these cookies are the LARGE size shown below.
