Fall is finally here and that means it is the start of the baking season.
I am a baker and I make sweets all year long, but the cold weather and lazy weekends at home make this one of my favorite times of the year to bake.
For this month’s tutorial I made some fun Cookie Monsters using Halloween theme cookie cutters.
To make these cookies you will need the following cookie cutters:
You will also need:
Orange, purple, red, black and white royal icing
Black food writer
Sugar eyes that you can get at any craft store
Couplers, disposable piping bags and tip #2
Begin by tracing the shape of the cookie cutters on a blank paper and sketching the design you would like.
Anything from big eyes, ears, mouths and sharp teeth will make some fun monsters.
For this little guy, just outline and flood the cookie with purple royal icing.
Once the icing is completely set, pipe two dots for the eyes, a few orange dots for the arms and a big red line with a few teeth for the mouth.
Use the black marker to detail the eyes.
This ghost costume cookie cutter is great for making different decorated cookies. Turn it upside down or to the side and you can totally get creative and come up with fun cookie designs.
For these cookies, outline and flood with icing leaving room in the middle to fill a black big mouth.
While the icing is still wet, attach the sugar eyes.
Let the cookie set and then fill the mouth with black icing.
Pipe a few dots to mark the face and make a small black horn.
Set the cookie on the side to dry completely, then
make the teeth.
I use a spider cookie cutter for this silly tiny monster. Three eyes and a ferocious mouth is all you need.
A coffin shape purple cookie is the base to make this orange long neck monster.
Just outline and fill the cookie with purple icing. Let the cookie dry and then pipe and fill a big semi-circle for the head, a long neck and three small legs to form the monster.
Make small black dot details on the body and attach one eye.
Now you are good to go.
This is a fun cookie monster set that you can place on your Halloween table for the kids to snack.
Wrap them in a cello bag and you will have a nice teacher treat.
