Cookie decorating with Hellie the Hovercraft Elephant

Shopping List:

  • Icing Pens - I use Dr Oetker which I can buy from my local supermarket. But any will do; from cake shops, pastisserias, etc.
  • Cookies
  • Lollies, sweets, chocolates for decorating


  • This kids' activity couldn't be easier!
  • Give your kids cookies
  • Icing pens
  • And a bowl of sweets
  • And let them decorate as they please! Their imagination is their only limit. And you can enjoy the results in a lovely teddy bear tea party at the end.
I used these cookies in my book Hellie the Hovercraft Elephant. I decorated Estrella cookies with a layer of icing and used chocolate smarties and marshmallows to make happy faces. Kids love seeing the sweet treats in a book and pretend to eat them. It's really fun to see their imaginations working overtime.
