If you're looking for an adorable cookie platter for Halloween, I have just the platter design for you.

This new cat & witch hat cookie platter pays homage to one of my favorite Halloween movies, Hocus Pocus. The design includes a cute black cat, a classic pointed witch hat, and utilizes the iconic song quote from the movie, "I put a spell on you".

Here's how you can recreate this witch-themed platter design that will surely be perfect for your upcoming Halloween celebration.

Cat & Witch Platter Cookie Cutters

The cookie cutters used for this tutorial are the witch hat, cat face, and a center circle cutter.

You can purchase cookie cutters together as a set of three, or as a 2-piece without the circle cutter.

(This is the same circle cutter used in all my platter sets, like this Snowflake set, Spiral Platter, and Floral Wreath, etc.)

There are two sizes available. When arranged as a platter, as shown in the example picture, the platter measures:

LARGE- 12 inches in diameter.

SMALL- 9 inches in diameter.

For this tutorial, I'll be decorating the large size.

Templates for the Cat & Witch Hat Cookie Platter

To help with the decorating process, I made a PDF template available this Halloween platter set.

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 Decorating Process

For the colors used for these cat and witch hat cookies, you will need the following suggested colors:

Step 1

For the witch hat cookie, fill in the top and rim sections with dark purple icing.

Let that icing set, then fill in the remaining hat band section with burnt orange icing.

Step 2

Next, add the square part of the buckle in gold icing.

Lastly, outline the edges of the hat and add the center buckle detail, as shown.

Step 3

For the cat cookie, begin by filling the face around the eyes, and the body section, as shown.

Once that icing had time to set, fill in the paws, ears, and the collar sections.

Step 4

Next, fill in the eyes with black icing and immediately add the white accent dots. Add the moon charm on the collar, the pink nose, and the tail.

Lastly, outline around the paws, the head, and the ears, as shown.

Step 5

For the center circle cookie, I flooded the cookie with burnt icing and let it dry completely. Then I airbrushed this witch stencil pattern on top with cooper airbrush color.

Once the cooper airbrush color had time to dry, I stenciled "I Put a Spell on You" on top with white icing. (Stencil coming soon!)

The steps above are summarized in this time-lapsed video I put together below.

Here's the final Halloween cookie platter all assembled. To create this entire platter requires 11 cookies-- 5 Halloween cats, 5 witch hats, and 1 center circle cookie.

This is the large, 12" version. For the tray it's on, I like to use the 12" pizza pans from Dollar Tree. They are cheap and sturdy for transporting around.
