3D SPACE SHUTTLE COOKIES3dp_ten3dpthings_shuttle

Space Shuttle 3D Cookie Cutter by animus

Found on: Thingiverse
Cost: Free

NASA may have discontinued their space shuttle program, but for many of us space nerds the shuttle will forever be the symbol of the space program. This set of two cookie cutters is designed so after baking both parts snuggly fit together and create a 3D space shuttle that can be launched directly into your mouth.

POO EMOJI COOKIES3dp_ten3dpthings_pooemoji

Poo Emoji Cookie Cutter by CrimsonManeCreations

Found on: Etsy
Cost: $7.34

Okay, so maybe the idea of eating something in the shape of poo isn’t the most appetizing, but it’s hard to ignore the fact that the poo emoji is kind of adorable. And if you’re really grossed out, then you can always make these and give them to people that you don’t like with a sweet note attached telling them to eat poo. Are you being nice and making clever baked goods, or just being passive agressive? Only you’ll know!


3D Dino Cookie Cutters – TRex by raccoonandcookie

Found on: CGTrader
Cost: $3.00

Has anyone else ever wondered if the people who live in the Jurassic Park world have ever tried cooking up some dino patties and making themselves a T-Rex burger? I’ve tried alligator and it tasted like dry chicken. Would a dinosaur taste like chicken, or because they are all genetically grown clones would they taste like chemicals? So it’s just me who thinks about this stuff, huh? Well I’m sure that we can at least all agree that a T-Rex shaped cookie would be delicious thanks to this 3D printed cookie cutter.


Escher Cookie Cutter by bpijls

Found on: Thingiverse
Cost: Free

I’m sure everyone has seen the amazing artwork of MC Escher, but if not then you really should look up some of his incredible art. While he explored lots of media in his long career, he is incredibly well known for his drawings of geometrically shaped animals that would fit together exactly when reorientated. These bird-shaped cookies are from one of the most famous examples of these drawings, and as hard as it must have been for Escher to draw them, it would be that incredibly easy for me to fit them all together in my stomach.

PENIS-SHAPED COOKIES3dp_ten3dpthings_penis

3D Printed Penis Cookie Cutters – Set of 3 by NBNLingerieBoutique

Found on: Etsy
Cost: $9.99

Obviously I don’t need to explain the proper use of these penis-shaped cookie cutters. Clearly they were invented so you can passive aggressively give them to the same person that you gave your Poo Emoji cookies to. Are you coming on to them? Are you just making a joke? Or are you telling them to eat a bag of… uhm, cookies? Once again, only you’ll know.

MUSTACHE COOKIES FOR MOVEMBER3dp_ten3dpthings_mustache

Mustache Cookie Cutters by dhulihan

Found on: Thingiverse
Cost: Free

Are people still doing Movember? It was all the rage for the last few years–the gist is, men grow out the facial hair that they typically shave in order to raise awareness for prostate cancer. It’s a good cause that helps men learn about a serious health risk that they need to take seriously, but is also an excuse to not shave for a month. (Unless you’re cool like me and never shave.) And if you find yourself follically challenged then you can just bake a bunch of mustache-shaped cookies and hand them out to other dudes while reminding them to get their bits checked out by a doctor.

THE FINGER-SHAPED COOKIES3dp_ten3dpthings_thefinger

Middle Finger Cookie Cutter by anonymous101

Found on: Shapeways
Cost: $19.99 and up (Depending on material)

Wow, the third cookie that I found that would be useful as a passive aggressive insult to the person that you bake them for. I may have anger issues mixed with the inability to be upfront with my feelings. Stop psychoanalyzing me! I’ll bake you some pastries if you don’t stop it!

And I just realized that these would also make great companion cookies for the Movember cookies above, and would really sell the ‘get your prostate checked’ message.

PUZZLE PIECE COOKIES3dp_ten3dpthings_puzzle

Puzzle Piece Cookie Cutters Set by The3DPrintStore

Found on: Etsy
Cost: $6.50+

No, I didn’t pick these cookies because I think it would be good to give them to people who confuse you, I said stop psychoanalyzing me. But that would seriously be a good reason to give them to someone. Also, I would imagine it would be fun to put all of the cookies together in a pattern and draw a big picture on them. And the picture could be of a middle finger or something. Or a cat maybe. I dunno, use your best judgement.

THE WALKING DEAD COOKIE CUTTERS3dp_ten3dpthings_zombies

Zombie Gingerbread Men Cookie Cutters by Jim Rodda

Found on: 3DShare
Cost: Free

Okay, stop it, everyone loves zombies and it seems like everyone is watching The Walking Dead, so this would not be confused for a threat at all. The set of two cookie cutters includes a walker cookie cutter and a fleeing victim cookie cutter.

PIRATE SKULL AND CROSSBONES COOKIES3dp_ten3dpthings_jollyroger

Jolly Roger Cookie Cutter by Daniel Norée

Found on: MyMiniFactory
Cost: Free (Or $5.00 if you want them printed for you)

Arrrrrr, these are the perfect cookies for Talk Like a Pirate Day, or for the release party of the next Pirates of the Caribbean movie that you’re planning on throwing. Or, yes, as a threat I guess, but that isn’t what I was thinking when I found this I swear. Also, it’s really weird that I keep talking about baking cookies for people that I don’t like.

Oh man, I do need therapy don’t I?
