CUPCAKE COOKIE CUTTER
There are several cupcake cookie cutters on the market. This design is adaptable to any of the cupcake shapes.
ROYAL ICING COLORS AND CONSISTENCIES :
Purple, Yellow, White, Orange, Black – 15 second consistency
DECORATING STEPS :
Outline and flood bottom of the cupcake cookie with purple royal icing (15sec). Use a needle to distribute the icing evenly. Immediately, while purple icing is wet use black royal icing and pipe a polka dot pattern into the purple icing. Start at the very top. Pipe the 1st line across the top and continue your way down.
While icing is wet sprinkle Silver Star Sprinkles on purple icing. Let icing crust well before adding candy corn layer.
CANDY CORN LAYER
With yellow icing (15 sec) pipe the 1st layer of cupcake swirl. It’s okay to slightly overlap the purple layer. Use a needle tool distribute and shape the icing while wet. Let crust.
After, pipe a middle layer with orange icing (15sec), let crust. And lastly pipe white layer (15sec). Let Dry. And that’s it.
That’s how you can make super simple and cute candy corn cookies or Halloween. And if you still need a little help figuring out how to decorate these cookies be sure to watch my step by step video tutorial, too.
