Halloween cookies

Here are the Halloween cookies that we will be enjoying today. “Dead” fingers, green witches finger and then the Halloween cookies decorated with royal icing. I got inspired by the recipe from Martha Stewart for the “dead” and witches fingers.

I gave both a light dusting with some cocoa powder. I think that I like the white ones the best.

My Halloween cookies turned out just as I planed. I want to share a great tip with you. When decorating cookies then let them dry underneath a work lamp. It works really good and you can pipe the final details on the cookie the same day, of course depending on what time you start flooding your cookies.

I will jump on my broomstick and fly out into the night. Happy Halloween everyone!

Happy Caking!

    Hi Lousie! Oh I love this website already, Im so glad I found it. I live in the Philippines and could not find modelling tools that I could use with fondant…can I buy clay modelling tools from craft stores instead? Would you recommend this? Thanks in advance for entertaining my question.

    I love the green fingers! They’re the perfect shade of green – not too green. So cute! I just love Hallween. It’s one of favourite times for baking because you can get really creative. Love your cookies!
