Get started by baking witch and cat sugar cookies!
We’ll start with the witch hat first.
Mix the royal icing into a flood consistency and use violet gel coloring and mix a pastel purple color. You only need to use a little of the gel coloring – a little goes a long way! If you accidentally make it too dark and want to lighten it up, just add more flood consistency white icing.
Outline the hat and fill it in with the pastel purple royal icing.
Mix the royal icing into a flood consistency again, use pink gel coloring and mix a light pink color. Outline the bottom of the neck area and fill in to create a shirt collar.
Next, using flood consistency icing again, mix green gel coloring to make a mint green color. Outline the face and fill in.
Mix black royal icing and create a thick line at the base of the witch hat.
Once all the layers of royal icing are dry, go ahead and add some details to the thick black line on the hat using the edible marker. Be as creative as you want!
Add an eye, nostril, and smile to the face.
Using the original royal icing consistency, mix into a lavender color using the violet gel coloring.
Using the star tip, pipe some hair onto the witch. You can make the hair texture however you’d like, curly, straight, or wavy!
Allow the cookies to dry completely.
Now, onto the simple and cute pastel cat cookies!
Use any of the flood consistency, pastel icings, outline the cat, and fill in with the icing. Once completely dry, use the edible black tip marker to create a fun and smiley face!
Now you have a perfectly prepared coven of cookies with a side of colorful cats!
