This year I made the design of my Halloween decorated cookies way ahead of time. I love playing with my cookie cutters trying out different designs. I particularly enjoy adding new parts to my cookie designs. This way, I filled my notebook with varied designs for my Halloween cookies: witch cookies, vampire cookies and bat cookies. Of course, the classic designs for pumpkin, ghost and tomb cookies could not be missing!

I baked two different models of witch cookies that I frosted with varied icing colors. I dressed the witches differently (long dress, tight dress, mini skirt…).

You might wonder why my witches were not ugly. Well, I simply could not do it! I decided to fill that ugly gap with my vampire cookies. The Dracula’s had to be genuinely hideous and scary. And they certainly were!

What about the bat cookies? I don’t know if you can perceive all the cookie volume. It was worked with three different grey hues and painted in brown.  I know I should not say this, but I love how these cookies turned out!

The pumpkin and ghost cookies were easier to decorate. To give the ghost a special look I added some chains and shackles to the cookie.  The tomb cookies were made with the same cookie dough as the rest of cookies but died with brown. I wanted the cookie dough to contrast with the whiteness of the tombstones.

The only cookie design that I did not invent myself was that of the skulls. I had seen a video on the Internet from the wonderful sweetambs and wanted to decorate a few skulls. To be honest, those were the last cookies I decorated before getting to work with the cake. I am afraid I did them in a rush since I had to start covering the cake and had no more time available for cookie decorating.I decorated those cookies my way, though. I used the colors left in my pastry bags. I know that I could have iced them with more detail, but given the circumstance, they turned out quite well!
