HOW TO MAKE SPOOKY HALLOWEEN MUMMY COOKIES

COOKIE CUTTER

For today’s spooky Halloween cookie project I used a Candy Corn cookie cutter turned upside down. But if you rather make not so scary candy corn cookies you’ll definitely love these Cute Halloween Cookies.

SCARY MONSTER ROYAL ICING EYES

Monster eyes are made as Royal Icing Transfers. I prepared them couple of days before. And you can also make them months in advance.

ROYAL ICING COLORS AND CONSISTENCY :

  • White, Red, Electric Green, Dark Green, Black – 25 second consistency

DECORATING STEPS :

Prepare royal icing and color it with gel food colors. To make electric green you can either use readily available electric green gel color or use yellow food color and a touch of leaf green.

Place a piece of wax paper on top of the template. Secure it with a masking tape. Then pipe sclera with white royal icing (25sec). Then onto the white pipe a red circle (25sec). Immediately marble icing using a needle tool.

Then pipe iris round with electric green (25sec) and then pipe a dark green dot (25sec) in the center of electric green.

After use a needle tool to shape and pull dark green icing into the electric green. Finish by piping a large black pupil (25sec) into the center of dark green.

Flatten the black icing with a needle tool using up and down sewing needle motion. Then attach a white dot of icing onto the edge of black to make the reflection.

Let the eyes dry overnight. Then peel off the baking wax paper. Store royal icing eyes in an airtight container until ready to use. Keep them away from direct sunlight and moisture. Royal icing transfers keep for months.

ROYAL ICING COLORS AND CONSISTENCY:

  • Red, Black – 10 second consistency
  • White – 20 second consistency

DECORATING STEPS :

Trace the outlines on a cookie with a card stock template and an edible marker. Then spread a thin layer of red royal icing (10sec) onto the eye and mouth opening. Dampen the food only paint brush and smooth the icing.

Then immediately pipe 2 dots with black icing (10sec) onto the red and into the corners. Blend the black into the red to shade the edges. Wipe the brush into a paper towel as you keep blending the icing. Let the icing dry.

Now attach the eyes onto the eye section. Use just a dot of white icing to adhere eyes onto the cookie. Secure eyes onto the cookie using a gentle back and forth motion.

Then start piping mummy bandages with white icing (20sec). Flood bandages in sections. Don’t flood neighboring sections at the same time or icing will blend together. Allow sections to crust for 20 minutes. Then continue flooding rest of the bandages. Let the icing dry before continuing with the next step.

APPLY DRY PETAL DUST

To give spooky mummy cookies more dramatic final look I used dry gray petal dust. With dry food only paint brush apply small amounts of dry petal dust onto the bandage seams. Spread the dust along the seams with a paint brush.
