Witch Hat Cookie Tutorial!

Do you have someone you'd love to give these cookies to?

Oh how they make me giggle!

These are inspired by a free printable 
(by now y'all know how I love printables!)
by Jenny at The NY Melrose Family

Wouldn't this be such a cute hostess gift!  
You could print it out, pop it in a frame, and add some cute witch hat cookies!

Wanna make some of your own?

Bake some hat shapes using your favorite sugar cookie dough.

You can find the recipe I use HERE

You'll also need piping and flood icing in black and at least one accent color,
I used orange, purple and electric green.
If you'd like your hats to sparkle, you'll want either clear or matching sanding sugar.

The cutter I used is from a wilton's a link:

With your black piping icing in a pastry bag fitted with a number 2 tip,
outline the brim and black stripes of your hat.

Make sure to curve the lines where the cone of your hat would meet the brim, and on your stripes.
That will make it look nice and round!

Fill in with black flood icing and let dry completely.

Then, with your accent color in a piping bag fitted with a number 2 tip,
connect the edges of the stripes.....

and fill them in with flood icing!

Now, you can leave them like this, or you can add sanding sugar and make them sparkle.
(If you add the sugar, make sure the black is really dry!)

While the flood icing is still wet, sprinkle on your sanding sugar.

Be sure to cover all the wet spots!

Just dump off the extra.

That's it!

Super cute with sparkles or without!

An easy hostess gift for Halloween!

Just make sure your hostess has a great sense of humor....
