Cookie Decorating is a necessary part of any holiday celebrating and Pinterest must agree. There have been so many cute ideas for Halloween cookie decorating all over Pinterest. Check out
our Halloween Board to see a few we have pinned.
We loved the ones that used gingerbread men in unique ways. Like the mummy and vampires! There were so many ideas like Frankenstein and skull bones.
However, when I visited the grocery store to stock up on Halloween Colored icing I didn’t want to spend the money for all of the pre-colored frosting tubes. I also didn’t feel like filling 5 tubes of self-colored icing. So…I bought chocolate and vanilla and was able to make a lot of creative decorations including ghosts, cats, pumpkin faces and so on. Plus, if it came down to it and I really wanted to add additional colors I could just use the vanilla and food coloring to mix up whatever I wanted. This worked out well for me.
We used Peanut Butter Cookie Mix and found the dough was too soft to properly cut out our shapes and move onto the baking pan. Cassie had previously seen a Pinterest pin on how to make frozen cookies ready for the oven. The concept from that pin gave her the idea to flatten our dough onto the baking pan, stick it in the freezer for an hour and then cut it out.
It worked wonderfully and we had perfectly shaped cookies!
The kids of course loved eating the heads off their mummies and vampires and frankly so did I!
