There are so many great ideas out there for Halloween cookies, its hard to decide what to do. I knew I would be bringing some cookies to a work pot-luck and also to a friend’s Halloween party so I was able to make more than usual and really have fun with them.
These eyeballs were pretty easy to do. I used a mustache cutter and a number 8 cutter. Layer on the circles and then fill with white around them once dry.
These spiders were a little bit of a fail. I used an octopus cutter, created the bodies, then added eyes and piped on legs. I think they ended up looking more like jellyfish but oh well. Still yummy of course!
These candy corn guys are one of my favorites. Based on the expressions you can make them happy, confused, or angry. This time I remembered to look at an actual candy corn and put the colors in the right order. In my mind it makes more sense for the colors to go from darkest to lightest but we know that’s not the case.
Of course you have to have pumpkins. These are pretty simple, but you can always add details to make them more elaborate if you want, such as a jack-o-lantern face or vines, etc.
Next up, I have some scary ghosts! These were fun and adding the extra piping details at the end really made them look special. Again with the expressions I like to make them look a little different and not all the same.
I was running out of energy on a late night of frosting when I got to these cats. So unfortunately they didn’t get a lot of detail. Or maybe its just because I’m not a cat person that these guys didn’t get much love. Still edible though right?!?
These were made with a mason jar cutter that I hadn’t used yet, so I decided to try a potion/spell jar with it. They turned out ok, I think if I was doing more of just them you could get some more detail with jar labels and such. Had to have some “Happy Halloween” ones in there. Plaque cutters are great for piping messages, and I love the mix of colors on these.
Lastly are the Frankenstein cookies. These are by far my favorite, I think they are so cute. These are done using a tutorial from The Sweet Adventures of Sugarbelle. I did these last year as well, and will probably keep on the list for each year. I did find my picture from last years and was able to tell my decorating has improved. 🙂
So those are my Halloween cookies for this year. Hope you enjoyed. Soon we’ll be moving on to Thanksgiving and Christmas. As my husband reminds me we only have 7 Sundays left before Christmas…aahh! I better start shopping soon!
Hope you all had a great Halloween – shine bright and stay sweet!
