Dave is a 3rd grade teacher. After hearing his students talk about Phineas and Ferb so much, he decided to watch it himself. Well, we are hooked now! It is so funny! He just turned 24 last month and of course I had to make him some Phineas and Ferb themed cookies. What else would a 24 year old want? Lucky you, you get to learn how to make them too! Just a warning, this post is long!
This what they look like. If you aren’t familiar with these characters, these cookies might be a little on the hideous side, but I LOVE them!
This is what you will need:
Sugar cookie mix (or if you are more of a go getter, do home made), shredded coconut, food coloring, frosting, wafer cookies, black gel frosting, Sour Patch Kids, square and triangle cookie cutters, and frosting eyeballs.
I have to direct you to Karen’s Cookies to get these adorable frosting eyes. They made the cookies look so good! I got the bigger ones, they are only roughly $3 for about 80 of them! I also got the cookie cutters there. They are great!
I had to make quite a few cookies so I baked them and here is where you go from there…
Dump your frosting in a bowl and add food coloring to start creating your teal color for Perry the Platypus. Now this will show how much I really do like the show, in their Christmas album, there is a song that describes Perry as “A Lovely Shade of Teal”. So I had to find a great shade for that. I used the regular food coloring colors, along with the neon ones and came up with this after a while.
I would say that looks like a pretty “lovely shade of teal” myself!
Now frost all of your square/rectangle cookies in the teal color. Now you are creating a Perry!
My favorite part of these cookies are Perry’s tail. I took the yellow/orange wafer cookies and broke them in half. Then put them on the end of Perry.
Now for Perry’s mouth. All I did was put an orange Sour Patch Kid across from his tail and up just slightly to create a Perry mouth.
It is time for Perry to grow some feet! Cut yellow Sour patch kids in half and add them to the bottom of Perry to give him some feet.
Now you can use your super cute frosting eyeballs that you got from Karen’s Cookies and he comes to life!
Now it is Phineas’ turn!
Add food coloring to more frosting to create a nice flesh color.
Frost all of your triangles.
Put some shredded coconut in a bowl and mix it with some orange food coloring. This is going to be his hair!
Add a little bit of coconut to the corner of each triangle. Phineas is starting to come to life!
Add two more of your eyeballs to your cookies just barely down the edge from his hair. This part I had to use a picture of him to be sure I got the angles right. Just think of the top edge as the bridge of his nose.
Now take your black gel and give him a smile! All you have to do is add a little bent line at the bottom!
You are done! All of your kiddos (or husbands) will love them!
