Stackable Witch Cookie Cutter Set
In the shop for the upcoming Halloween season is this stackable witch cookie cutter set. This set comes in 4 pieces, each a different part of the Halloween witch body design.
For this tutorial, I decorated the LARGE size. When assembled together, the LARGE set will fit inside in this BRP long cookie box (12″ x 5″ x 1.5″).
Templates for the Stackable Witch Cookies
To help with the decorating process, I made a PDF template available for this year's Halloween cookie designs as a guideline.
You can download these cookie templates HERE.
If you have a Kopykake or Pico projector, just print it out (or pull it up on your mobile device) and you are good to go. For those without a projector, follow the suggested steps below by tracing the design onto the cookie with an edible food marker.
The Cookie Decorating Process
For this witch cookie set, you will need the following suggested colors:
- Black royal icing. (I used Americolor Super Black.)
- Purple icing. (I used Rainbow Dust Purple with a touch of black.)
- Orange icing. (I used Americolor Orange with a touch of black.)
- Green icing. (I mixed Americolor Forest Green and Americolor Ivory with a touch of black.)
- Yellow icing. (I used Americolor Egg Yellow.)
- White icing. (I used Americolor Bright White.)
For the hat cookie, begin by filling in the top and bottom black sections of the hat first. Let that icing set.
Then fill in the purple hat band in the middle. Let this icing dry for abour an hour.
Next, add the yellow square buckle detail over the purple band, as shown. Let that icing set for about 15 minutes.
Then add that small, center buckle detail.
For the head cookie, begin by filling in the face area first with green icing. Let that icing set.
Then add the orange side hair sections.
Next, fill in the top hair section.
Then add the ears, nose, and face details, as shown.
For the dress or body cookie, begin by filling in the top shirt section with purple icing and the large lower dress section with black icing. Let this icing set.
Next, fill in the arm sections with green icing and the chest overalls section with black icing.
Fill in the remaining puffy sleeves sections with purple icing.
Lastly, add the apron detail on top of the black dress icing, as shown.
For the legs cookie, begin by filling in the stockings sections with purple icing. Let this icing dry completely before moving on.
(You'll notice I used a plastic blocker to prevent the striped detail getting onto the naked cookie. You can see a better illustration of this in the video below.)
Next, add the black shoe and white bloomer sections of one of the legs. Let that icing set.
Lastly, repeat this on the remaining leg.
Stackable Witch Cookie Video Tutorial
The steps above are summarized in this time-lapsed video I put together.
When all the 4 pieces are assembled together, the completed witch design should look like the one below.
This is the LARGE size set option. The overall witch dimensions are 10.85" tall and 4.0" wide. I used this BRP long cookie box (12″ x 5″ x 1.5″) for packaging and it fit perfectly.
For a size comparison, here's the smaller REGULAR set as well.
The REGULAR cookie set will fit in this BRP cookie box (9.5" x 6" x 1.5").
