I love how you decorated the bucket too! I’ve never tried fondant on cookies. I used royal icing on my halloween cookies last year. I think I’ll try the fondant next time I make a cookie basket.

It is one of my most used tools in my tool box :-)

I was recently stretched outside my comfort zone and did some spiders and bats… but they were cute I think!!

What it looks to me like they’re made of makes no sense (because I am nonsensical a lot of the time ). And also because I’m one of those people who needs VERY clear directions. Your Easter e-book was prefect for me =-)~

Missi: I have made the baskets myself ;-)You are welcome to use the idea.

Christy: I use corn syrup on the cookies and then the fondant. With these baskets I will store the cookies in air thight boxes and then place the cookies in the basket on the day.

Jenie: As you can prevent the fondant from drying out over time I would not store them for longer than 3 weeks, 4 weeeks the maximum. It is always good to let them semi dry for a couple of hours or over the night under a clean towel, before packing them carefully in airthight containers. This is to prevent the fondant iced cookie from getting marks ect.

I would be interested to know how you adhered the fondant. Are you going to enclose them in a bag? If not, how will you keep them from drying out?

I’d like to make them for a Halloween Party we’re having with a group of kids. Thanks!

I love your blog and was hoping you’d show us a picture of some pumpkin shaped cookies. I have a pumpkin cutter and now have the inspiration I need to give it a try. Many thanks for being such a generous person with your skills :)

I do pumpkins, ghosts, bats, tombstones etc. But my favorites are bloody monster hands. So fun.

The basket and the pumpkins looks great. I would definitely be happy to receive such gift for halloween. I also like the “Bat” cookie cutter and the cutter shaped like a cat that arches its back can be used. Happy “cookie-caking”
