Ferret Project #6: Ferret Cookies
You can use any roll out cookie recipe. I prefer a Scotch shortbread recipe, as it makes a stiff cookie that holds up well. Using any size ferret cookie cutter, roll out your dough, cut and transfer cookies to a baking sheet.
After cookies have baked and are cool, ice with melted chocolate. After the base coat of icing is hard, add other colors for making a sable, and add eyes and noses.
Ferret Project #7: Ferret Cinnamon Rolls
This treat uses a pre-made roll of cinnamon rolls from the grocery store. It is a quick and yummy project that is a great for children to do. In addition to the rolls, you need a baking sheet, rolling pin, ferret cookie cutter and a raisin or chocolate chip for the eyes.
Place all the cinnamon rolls close together and roll out a little. Place on the baking sheet and bake according to directions on package. After removing from oven and cooling for a few minutes, ice with the icing that comes in the package and add the raisin or chocolate chip eye.
Ferret Project #8: Ferret Fruit Cupcakes
This is another easy project for kids. Print or draw the size and shape of the desired ferret and place the pattern onto a fruit roll and cut out. Place the ferret on top of the iced cupcake. The frosting holds the ferret onto the cupcake.
