1. Cut-out Snacks. 

Any food that’s firm enough to hold its shape can be cut. Fudge, brownies, cookies. You can do everything you wanted to do. Your only limit is your imagination.

2. Shaped omelets and pancakes.

Make sure to use stainless steel cookie cutters! These have always come out really well in our experience.

3. A Pie. 

I love to put cute little designs in the top crust of a pie. Sometimes, I’ll take the shapes I’ve cut and put them on top of another pie, like a pumpkin. The little designs give the pie something extra.

4. Cake decorating. 

You can use the cookie cutters to make impressions in a cake’s frosting or to make a stencil for sprinkling colored sugar or sprinkles. 

5. Make mini cakes.

Use a cookie cutter to make shapes out of a shallow cake. Or, even better, tightly wrap the sides and bottom of a stainless steel cookie cutter with foil and fill it with cake batter. Bake according to the recipe or package instructions, but check it frequently. The very small cake will cook very quickly. Frost as usual, or smooth a layer of icing, peanut butter, jelly, or chocolate ganache in between two cakes for a shaped whoopie pie.


6. Ice cream shapes. 

Fill cookie cutters with slightly softened ice cream and refreeze until it’s hard. You could cut out cookies or cake shapes and make ice cream sandwiches this way, too.

7. Sandwich shapes.

Whether you’re feeding a crowd of preschoolers or dinner party guests, everyone loves shaped food, right? Have you ever considered packing sandwiches shapes in school or work lunches? I am sure your kids gonna love it or even your spouses. 

8. Salads.

Use your cookie cutters to make the veggies in a garden salad fun shapes. You could cut all of the veggies in the salad into anything you liked, it could be animal shapes, numeral, royal signs shapes. I think even a picky kiddo would try that. You can do the same thing with a fruit salad. 

9. Toast and butter.

Use large cookie cutters to imprint buttered toast. If you’re so inclined, you can dust inside (or outside) the cookie cutter with powdered sugar, cinnamon, or even colored sugar or sprinkles. Slice pats of butter a little thinner than usual, and use mini cookie cutters to cut them into shapes.


10. Cupcake Toppers.

We all want to eat that cupcake that looks exciting. Even the old one would eat those. It is so refreshing to see a cupcake that has small designs on top of it, especially when your cupcake has an artistic topper.


These are the things that a cookie cutter can do! Try it now!
