Transformer Cookies

My oldest son Bryan actually sculpted a more complicated Transformer with a metal spatula while the dough was still on the counter. Then we iced the cookies with icing. I was able to get such bright bold primary colors from icing dye made for professionals who decorate cakes for a living. You can buy the icing dye from craft supply stores that have a cake-decorating aisle.
