Halloween Spider Cookies

I’ve made Halloween Spider Cookies in the past (you can see my favorite and creepiest set here), but this is the first time I’ve created a video for this technique! I combined my wet-on-wet roses with these creepy cookies for a little added elegance to make a hauntingly beautiful set.

Here’s what you’ll need to make these Halloween Spider Cookies:

Instructions:

1) Begin by icing a plaque-shape cookie with pale ivory flood consistency royal icing and a decorating tip number 3.

2) Use a scribe tool to evenly distribute the icing.

3) Pipe a spider web with gray flood consistency royal icing and a decorating tip 1.

4) Use the scribe tool to help shape the icing.

5) Allow the icing to dry completely, which will take 6-12 hours depending on humidity.

6) Pipe a spider with dark gray medium consistency royal icing and a decorating tip 1.

7) Add borders with the gray icing and then allow the icing to dry at least 1 hour.

8) Mix black pearl dust with alcohol or any flavor extract (read this post for more info on painting on royal icing). Keep the bronze pearl dust dry.

9) Paint the body of the spider, concentrating the color on the edges.

10) Dust the edges of the cookie with the dry bronze pearl dust.

11) To make the roses, ice a small round cookie with pale ivory flood consistency royal icing and a decorating tip 3.

12) Pipe gray dots with flood consistency icing and a decorating tip 1.

13) Add a small amount of black flood consistency icing.

14) Swirl the colors together with the scribe tool.

15) To make the leaves, pipe two dots of flood consistency icing on each rose.

16) Add a small dot of black icing.

17) Use the scribe tool to drag the icing into a leaf shape.

18) Pipe small dots with black flood consistency icing.

19) Allow the icing to dry completely.

20) Pipe a border with dark gray medium consistency royal icing and a decorating tip 1.

21) Dust the edges with the dry bronze pearl dust.

Happy Halloween!
