{Video} Easy Ghost Cookies

Share it!   

Happy Monday! Preferring boo-tiful to spooky, today I’m sharing a video on how to making these easy ghost cookies.

If you’re pressed for time but still want to make some custom sweets, these guys are perfect. You can find all the recipes and tools I used below the video.

Recipes

Use a recipe of your choice as your cookie base (I used my sugar cookie recipe) and cut out the ghost shapes with this cookie cutter.

You can find my favorite royal icing recipe here. The consistency of icing is key for easy decorating. Click here to see a YouTube video on finding the right icing thickness. Here are more videos on outlining and flooding etc., if you need some tips on those basics. To decorate, you’ll also need the following items:

      Hi Dawn,
      I used it to grease the transparency sheets for the royal icing transfers.

    Sweetest little ghosts I’ve ever seen. You do such perfect work. Marian, I use Americolour gel colouring but cannot get my black a real deep black. It comes out grey. Any suggestions?

      Hi Marilyn,
      Absolutely! I have a post on it here; http://sweetopia.net/2011/05/how-to-color-royal-icing-black/ In essence, I unfortunately have to use a lot of coloring to get it to the shade I want, which often leaves a bit of a bitter taste. I try to avoid using too much black for that reason. Hope that helps!

      You can always add some melted chocolate. I tried it on my grandsons birthday cake for tractor tires. Good luck.

    ‘Marian, fell in love with the monogrammed cookies and then you monogrammed the ghosts.What a great idea, Tried to download the Lavanderia script after paying $5.00. Kind of an odd site. Did I do something wrong? How did you download.? I even left a message for the owner and haven’t heard back. Would appreciate how you did it, Thanks so much.
