Let's make some pumpkin cookies!!!
Poke any big air bubbles with a toothpick and set aside to dry for a bit.
(Y'know...long enough to fold some laundry...watch a little tv....eat a huge piece of cake and take a nap...whatever floats your boat)
When the first bit has dried, fill in the rest!
Fill these enough to cover your line that divides your sections.
So...that's it really!
You could stop there and move on to the stem....or....
You can make them SPARKLY!!
If you choose to add sparkles,
let your first sections dry a bit longer-I wait a few hours.
You'll need to be able to pick up your cookie and handle it without crushing your icing.
I used orange sanding sugar, but white would be pretty too.
Place your cookie on a paper plate or paper towel. You'll want
something to catch the extra sugar and help get it back into your bowl when you're done.
Fill your empty sections with icing and wait about a minute or so.
Grab a spoon, fill it with sugar, and sprinkle over the wet icing.
Or....dump it on, pour it on....whatever.
Just cover all the wet parts.
Carefully pick up your cookie and let the extra sugar fall onto the plate.
Now we just need a stem!
Pipe the outline with a number 2 and fill with flood icing.
Use whatever color you'd like....black, brown, green...
Leaves are made with piping icing and a number 68 leaf tip.
For large pumpkins like these I like 3 leaves.
First one side,
Then the other.
Middle leaf last so that it lies on top.
You can do it!
I know you can!
You don't have to stick with orange either....
