Hello hello! It’s getting quite pumpkiny over here… Not only in oh-so-delicious pumpkin spice cookie flavour, but in design as well. I’ve been decorating cookies for over 10 years now and I still find these one of my favorite autumn, or any time really, cookies to decorate. The technique is simple and easily mastered with just a few cookie basics, really!
If you’re new to cookie decorating, I promise, these are doable. Yes, practice does help with piping, but with the right recipes and icing consistency, you’re well on your way to a satisfying decorating (and eating!) experience. Experienced decorators, I’d love to see what your cookie creations look like, please feel free to tag me on social media somewhere so I can see!
Here’s what you’ll need if you’d like to make these:
The pumpkin cookie cutter can be found in How Sweet is That? ‘s shop here.
What you’ll need:
- Piping or Decorating Tips – PME #1, PME #43, Leaf Tip #65
- Piping Bags
- Gel paste colors
- Scribe Tool or Toothpicks
This video on outlining and flooding is a good place to start if you’re new to decorating cookies with royal icing. These cookie decorating basics YouTube videos may also be helpful to get you started.
Besides the video tutorial on YoutTube which I’ve shared here, I’ve also shared a few how-to videos on Instagram, which you can see here.
A few quick notes… The deeper shade of orange was made by adding a bit of red to orange gel coloring.
