How to Make a Frankenstein Cookie Set
One of my favorite type of cookie design is a 2-piece puzzle cookie set. These sets break up a single design into two separate cookies, making it easier to decorate. Also, I think they make adorable gift options as well!
This new Halloween cookie set is a like 2-for-1 deal. You have the option of making a sitting Frankenstein design, or with a switch of the head, create a sitting mummy design. Both options use the same cookie cutter body.
For this tutorial, I'll be showing how to decorate this cute Frankenstein monster set.
Sitting Frankenstein Cookie Cutter Set
Just added to the shop for the upcoming Halloween season is this Frankenstein & Mummy Cookie Cutter Set.
The cookie cutters are available in Regular and Large sizes. However, for this tutorial, I'll be decorating the LARGE size.
Templates for the Sitting Monsters Cookie Set
To help with the decorating process, I made a PDF template available for this new Halloween monster cookie 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 Frankenstein and Mummy cookies, you will need the following suggested colors:
- White flood royal icing (I used Americolor Bright White.)
- Brown icing ( I mixed Americolor Orange with Americolor Electric Green, and a touch of Warm Brown.)
- Green icing (I mixed two parts Americolor Egg Yellow and One part Americolor Mint, with a touch of Ivory.)
- Black icing (I used Americolor Super Black.)
- Gray icing (I mixed a touch of black icing above with fresh white icing.)
- Purple icing (I mixed Rainbow Dust Progel Purple with a touch of Wilton Rose.)
- Light Blue icing (I mixed Americolor Wedgewood with a touch of Super Black.)
For the head cookie, begin by first filling in the face area with green icing. Let that icing set.
Then fill in the top hair section with black icing.
Next, fill in the gray bolts, the green ears, and add a nose, and two eyebrows. Then finish by adding the eyes, the chin line, and the ear line details. (I used this food marker for the ears.)
For the body cookie, start by filling in sections that don't touch each other. Move on to other sections after the icing had time to set.
I laid out the sequenced order I did as an example.
The last step is to add an outline around the shoes and the bottom of the shirt, as shown.
The steps above are summarized in this time-lapsed video.
These sitting Frankenstein cookies come in two size options: LARGE and REGULAR.
In the next few photos, you can see all the LARGE options nestled in this BRP cookie box (7" x 4 3/8" x 1.25").
Here's the mummy cookie option. It utilizes the same body cookie cutter. Just switch out the head cutter to complete this design. (This is also the LARGE size option.)
