Halloween cookies by Bobbie Noto

The longer the spider legs the creepier they appears!

Halloween is probably my second favorite holiday. I love seeing the little kiddos’ costumes and

watching their eyes dance as they inspect their stash!

I was asked to create 30- 35 cookies for an elementary class’ Halloween party, I thought these spooky spider and web cookies would be just scary enough!

The techniques used for this project:
Flooding
Filigree
Wet on wet
Pressure piping
Royal icing transfers

Supplies Needed For This Project:

Grey is a fairly easy colour to achieve use a black colour paste

The more or less black added to the Royal icing will determine the shade of grey
