Halloween is almost here and I can’t wait to raid…I mean CHECK my kid’s candy stash. In the meantime, I made my own Halloween candy, cookie-style.
I’d originally planned to use a skull cutter for this design, but after sketching, I realized my jack o’ lantern stencil was too big for the cutter I had in mind. Instead I went with a candy corn.
Before decorating I traced around the bottom of the cutter with a food safe marker to map out the design. This is a great way to create uniform cookies without using a projector.
- Orange piping and flood icing
- Yellow flood icing
- Black piping icing
- White 20-second icing
- Neon quins
Begin by outlining and filling the cookie as pictured below.
When the base is completely dry, use a stencil to carefully add the face. This particular stencil is a discontinued Wilton product, so, if you need jack o’ lantern stencils, find them here, here, or here, cut your own, or just freehand the design.
- Use black icing to pipe a handle with a #3 tip and let dry.
- Cover a small area at the top of the bucket with white 20-second icing.
- Immediately sprinkle neon quins over the wet white icing. If necessary, fill in any blank spots with extra quins
- Use orange piping icing to add an accent line to bucket.
