Black Cat Cookie Wedding Cake Topper

My brother and his wife love two things as much as they love each other: Autumn and black cats! I had the honor of creating this black cat cookie that sat atop a pumpkin cake at their fall-themed wedding a couple of weeks ago.

I made the topper with my Orange Vanilla Spice cookie recipe. The shape was cut by hand and iced with black royal icing that I colored with edible charcoal powder (my new favorite way to make black icing!). I added the cookie sticks using the technique shown in this blog post.

The yellow and red roses were piped with stiff consistency royal icing and a petal tip 101. You can learn more about piping roses and leaves in my book or in my video tutorial series, available in the tutorial shop. Once the roses were dry, I dusted them with Crystal Colors Autumn Blaze.

The pumpkin cake was made by Deisings Bakery in Kingston, New York.
