Sheep-shaped Cookies

Sheep-shaped cookies, Winter 2004. Made with ginger-bread cookie recipe. This was the first food design be realized. There was a lot of excitement to see and taste the result. In a way this eagerness added to the slotted design of the cookies. The concept of this form was drawn from quick architectural mockup techniques to visualize a 3-dimensional shape. Side and front profiles were drawn and cookie cutters were crafted.

The thickness of each cookie varies by the ratio of the ingredients. A varying slot cutter was made to allow for different thickness of the rise of the cookie.

Here’s the process:
First tested the overall aesthetic using cardboard.

After a consistant thickness of doug has been flatten the shapes are cut out.

A secondary cut creates the joining slot.
