Oh Snap - Camera Cookie Tutorial

Who else out there still madly loves their camera? In the era of phone cameras, I see less Nikons and Canons around, but I still adore my Nikon camera and use it when I can. Not to mention that cameras are gorgeous pieces of technology! I thought it would be fun to create some sweet camera cookies for National Camera Day. These would also be the sweetest thank you gift for the amazing photographer in your life.

These camera cookies are a snap to make! You can make them with a square or rectangle cookie cutter. I stacked a few mini hearts in the lens for some of my cookies - I love that layered look! Have you ever layered a cookie for added dimension?


  • square or rectangle cookie
  • flood royal icing in: white, aqua blue and grey

  • Flood a white lens in the center of your camera.
  • Flood the bottom half of camera in aqua blue.
  • Flood a thick white stripe above the aqua blue.
  • Flood the top part of the camera in grey. Do not flood all the way to the top, you need room to ice a few dials.
All of these steps were done wet-on-wet, there is outline piping and it can cover any mishaps. If you don't like to wet-on-wet, you can dry before moving on to the next step.

  • Pipe a small white rectangle in the grey icing while it's still wet, this will allow it to flow together.
  • Pipe two small "dials" on the top of the camera on either side.
  • Pipe an outline of the camera and lens reflection in grey icing.
  • Add an iced mini heat to the lens if desired. I think it makes it super cute!!

Want to see a quick fun video on how I created mine? Just click the movie above! You'll see it's quick, low stress and so cute. You can change these up easy with some decorative touches or changing the colors up a bit. I think they are a perfect thank you gift for a special photographer in your life.
