On Safari For Autism Awareness

Autism Awareness Cookies

I made these cookies to promote Autism Awareness as part of Sugar Art for Autism. I chose a children’s theme of Safari Zoo Animals. I used primary colors and puzzle cookies because primary colors and puzzles pieces are usually associated with Autism. I used different patterns for each of the animals to represent different textures. Children with Autism often choose foods based on their texture.

This was my Safari Sign cookie that says Autism Awareness as the name of the Safari. There are green elephants, yellow giraffes, blue elephants, and red lions on the sign.

I cut out the Safari animal shapes in cookie form and baked them. Then I colored fondant and rolled it out. I used pattern mats for make designs in the animals and the letters. I cut out the animal shapes and the letters. I cut some of the animals into puzzle shapes and left some whole to allow the texture to be seen more clearly.
