We’ve made some creepy cat cookies for you to recreate at home this Halloween. Use them as Halloween party favours or as a little gift for your trick or treaters! All you need is a cat shaped cookie cutter, biscuit dough and black and orange icing! Here’s how to make them…
Bake Your Cookies
For our biscuits we always follow Biscuiteers easy vanilla biscuit recipe from their blog. Golden syrup and granulated sugar add give the biscuits a good flavour and texture, Biscuiteers use this recipe in their bakery every day! Create your cookie dough and cut out cat shapes using our black cat cookie cutter, then bake according to Biscuiteers recipe. You should be left with a batch of uniform, golden biscuits.
Outline your Biscuits
Next follow Biscuiteers recipe for line icing. We use the all in one method for our royal icing (royal icing sugar and water) that creates a toothpaste-like consistency which is what you need for line icing! Add a drop of black food colouring then pipe the outline above onto your sugar cookie and allow to dry. Make sure you use gel colour otherwise you’ll use a lot of food colouring and your icing will become runny! Be careful not to pipe too close to the edges to avoid drips.
Again, we use a recipe from Biscuiteers for our flood icing which produces a more runny consistency. Add your black food colouring and put your icing into a squeezy bottle. Squeeze the icing into the space but don’t add to much as it’ll flow over your line icing. It’s better to use a small amount of icing then tap the edges of your biscuit to cover it. Take extra care when flooding the legs and tail.
The Finishing Touches
Once your flood icing has dried use orange line icing to add your spooky finishing touches! Give your black cats an orange collar and creepy orange eyes!
