It is time to Fall in love with cookies!!
I am so excited about the changing season. Fall is a sign of the upcoming holidays and family festivities. I love this time of the year, Trick-or-Treating, apple picking, going to the pumpkin patch and visits to the farm, not to mention all the holiday baking ahead of us.
For this month’s cookie tutorial I have angry ghost, pumpkins and a few sparkly bats to get you ready for Halloween cookie decorating.
Let’s gather our supplies:
To make these cookies you will need the following:
Making the Angry Ghost Cookies
These guys are certainly in a pretty bad mood. It is all about the eye expression!
Begin by outlining and flooding the ghost with white icing. Let them dry completely.
Now, using your food safe black marker to draw the eyes. In the picture below, you can see that I draw the eyes based on a template I found online. I wanted something a little dramatic, but funny, silly and other expressions would be fun to make too.
Follow the same instructions as above for this cookie as well.
Making the Mummy Cookies
These little guys sure look very tidy in their cloth strips.
Begin by attaching the eyes with a dot of royal icing.
To make the mummy’s cloth strips: Using the basket wave tip, make various strips across the cookies surrounding the eyes.
Let the strips set a bit and then make more until the cookies are almost completely cover in strips.
Let the cookies dry completely and dust a little gold dust to add an antique old look.
Making the Bat Cookies
Using a small offset spatula cover the cookie with royal icing. I didn’t have any black icing so I used some brown that I had on hand.
Sprinkle the cookie with black sanding sugar, let it set for a few seconds and then shake the excess off.
Making the Pumpkin Cookies
I thought you might want to see a giant spider!! Nope, it is not real, thank goodness!
Divide the pumpkin into three sections and begin by outlining the pumpkin segments as shown below.
Fill alternating sections with orange icing letting the icing set a bit between each section to create dimensions.
Add polka dots and set the cookie aside to dry completely.
Once the cookies are completely dry, position the stencil over the cookie and spray the gold dust.
Remove the stencil carefully and let the cookie dry.
To finish the cookie, use a tip #2 to add a few vines and details
