Purrfectly Simple Halloween Cat Cookies




I've been lucky enough to virtually cross paths with such incredibly talented edible artists all over the world  this weeks "Write with Me" guest is no exception!! Join along in creating with these adorable decorated cookies!! Perfect as favors or treats!!

Hey sweet friends! I'm Michelle from Make Me Cake Me! I love simple cookie designs that are beginner-friendly and come together quickly. Last Christmas I did a Simple Design series with Easy trees, simple snowflakes, and cute cocoa mugs showing that you certainly don't need lots of royal icing bells and whistles to create a festive and impressive cookie! 

 Inspired by Bake at 350's Hello (polka dot) Kitties , these Halloween cat cookies keep the simple style going and will no doubt bring smiles to trick-or-treaters and costume party goers alike.





 By the by, I seem to have a thing for cats lately and orange cats in particular. I consider myself a dog person, but that may simply be because I'm allergic to cats. If I wasn't allergic, I'm fairly certain I'd have a cuddly orange cat at home. Better yet, she'd be a touch grouchy at times because as my friend Mike put it, "There's something charming about a bothered cat."

  

 Grab sugar cookies and your icing bag because it's time to decorate! 
  • Piping icing, Americolor Orange 
  • Flood icing, Americolor Orange 
  • 20 second icing, Americolor Bright White 
  • Piping icing, Americolor Super Black 

Starting with orange piping icing, outline the entire cat. After 15 minutes or so, flood the center and while the icing is still wet, drop in white dots using a number 2 tip. 



Wait at least a couple hours or better yet, overnight, before using black piping icing to add a bow to your cat's neck. That's it! A Halloween cat that's super cute and purrfect for beginners!



This cat cutter is from Wilton's 50-piece Animal Pals set and was also recently used by Sweetambs to create a more realistic cat cookie. Of course, other cat cutters will do the trick and I love the cutter that Bridget of Bake at 350 used to make her polka dot kitty cookies.
