I had to admit the skull intimidated me. I only baked one. I started icing it, looking at a drawing on Google, and got this far and decided he was perfect, just as he is!
My cats didn't make it into the collage. They turned out ok. I dropped eyeballs (that I made last week with white and black royal icing) into the wet black icing and they turned out cute.
I give total credit to Sweet Sugar Belle for the inspiration (and instruction) for these Frankies!! I totally copied her. She is a cookie Goddess!! Go check out her blog! You'll be lost for hours! (Never mind. If you do you'll see that hers are so much cuter than mine.) ;)
Doesn't it look like the bats are flying around your head?!
Here are most of the cookies together. These will be for the bake sale table.
I love the Haunted sign! I bought the cookie cutter from Plastics in Print on Etsy. The only cookie cutter I could ever find of that shape (what the heck do you call that shape, anyway??!) was a copper cookie cutter that costs around $16! I don't think so! Then another awesome cookie decorating blogger posted pictures of a cookie of this shape, and I asked her where she bought her cutter, and she told me about PIP! Woot for helping fellow bloggers out!
This is what the final cookie basket for the silent auction looks like. How much would you bid?
I think they turned out so dang cute that I might have to keep the cookies and donate cash!! ;)
