Day 302 {halloween cookies}

I made more halloween sugar cookies today and had more success keeping the frosting from running off this time.

My attempt at black frosting. I have determined it can't be done with regular good colouring. You need the actual Wilton stuff. Oh well. I worked with what I had.

My baking assistant and clean up crew:

That was it. Thanks for looking!

Hi Jenn
Another secret to making black icing (even with wilton stuff!) is to use chocolate first. It helps to make it "black" without having to use too much die. Keeps the staining down and taste factor is better.
Awesome pictures :) I read it almost everyday.
Thanks for the tip Amy! This is fantastic. I will have to try it out! Thanks for your kind comment. It's nice to know that there are people who find it worthwhile reading. :)

I have some Wilton colour pots.
I can lend them to you the next time you need food colouring.
The cookies were beautiful and delicious :)
