Santa Gingerbread Cookies

It was six years ago that I debuted these Santa Gingerbread Cookies on this blog.  You can find it at Santa Baby and here is the picture from back then.  These cookies have evolved slightly with the holly on the hat.

To make the hats, I used the below picture to make the template

Halloween Cookies

Every year I try to come up with new ideas for all of my holiday cookies.  These cookies were made using my White Chocolate Roll Out Sugar Cookies  

For the skull and witch’s hat cookies I used  cookie cutters that I found in AC Moore.  The cat silhouettes were made using a plastic template that I made from these pictrures. Check out my Birdhouse Cookies to see how I make templates


I used the below picture as a decorating guide for the skulls

Pennywise the Clown Decorated Cookies

Pennywise the Clown Decorated Cookies.

I thought I’d try something different for my Halloween cookies this year.  Rather than do the normal witches, vampires, skeletons, pumpkins, etc; I wanted to do something a little different.  The creepy clowns.  I succeeded fairly well with Pennywise, from Stephen King’s Novel called It.  My Twisty the Clown cookies, from American Horror Story, turned into a diseaster so they didn’t make the video.  That’s too bad because Twisty is my favorite creepy clown.

I made the templates by downloading a picture of Pennywise from Google and traced the picture and all of the details onto a piece of acetate using an edible pen.  For more on how I make templates check out my Birdhouse Cookies and to learn how to transfer the details onto the cookie check out my Krav Maga Belt Testing Cookies where I show you how to do that.

What am I mixing in the video?  To make the teeth look rotted, I mixed together a few drops of vodka with brown gel paste color and painted it on the teeth with a small brush.

I made these using a basic rolled out sugar cookie.   Recipe here
