Happy Halloween! I've been working on my royal icing skills...here's my latest creation. Purple ghost cookies! I've found that rolling out the cookies a little thicker is the way to go. Sometimes when they are too thin, the cookies don't break apart as easy when you remove them from the cookie sheets (one of my ghosts only had one arm...oops!). I also think that thicker cookies hold up a little better to the icing - which you have to layer on pretty thick to get a matte finish on the cookies.
LESSON LEARNED: Holidays are a good excuse to use themed cookie cutters!
