Halloween Candy Bucket Cookies

Halloween Candy Bucket Cookies

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 … [Read more...]

Want to make beautiful, colorful cookies without mixing a single icing color?  Today The Cookie Countess shows us how! I love decorating  cookies.  I really, really do.  But I'm going to let you in on a little secret...I loathe coloring icing and dealing with bags.  Mixing colors, dodging of that splat of gel when you first open a new food color bottle, loading and cleaning bags, drying and sorting tips...drives me bonkers. This is one of … [Read more...]

Burnt Orange Royal Icing

Pumpkin Orange Royal Icing 3

It's autumn in Cookieland, which means an abundance of fall-colored icing.  At the top of the list...burnt orange. There are several ways to mix burnt orange icing, but since I'm a little sensitive to bitter colors (like red, purple, orange, black, burgundy, and pink) I bypass orange in favor of equal parts tulip red, egg yellow, and warm brown. If you aren't bothered by bitter colors, simplify things by using copper or mixing orange and … [Read more...]
