This Salem Broom Co cookie set pays homage to one of my favorite Halloween movies when I was a kid (and still a favorite of mine today). Can you guess which one? The vacuum clue might be a good giveaway.

To help decorate this set, I utilized this Salem Broom Co stencil. It's fairly easy to use and speeds up the decorating process. I'll show you how below.

Salem Broom Co Stencil and Cutters

Just added to the shop for the upcoming Halloween Season is this new Salem Broom Co stencil. It's paired with the Rectangle Cookie Cutter.

For the broom plaques, this new ticket plaque was used to complete the set. When assembled together, the set will fit perfectly in this BRP long cookie box (12″ x 5″ x 1.5″).

Templates for the Salem Broom Co 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 Decorating Process

For these broom cookies, you will need the following suggested colors:

Step 1

Begin by flooding the entire cookie with white icing. Let this icing layer dry.

Once the white icing is completely dry, it's time to add the sign details. I used this Salem Broom Co stencil in my shop, along with the Stencil Genie.

Swipe purple stiff icing over the stencil and scrape off the excess.

Step 2

Next, add a black frame border along the edge of the cookie to complete the sign.

Step 3

For the broom cookies, begin by flooding the base with white icing. Let this icing set.

Next, fill in the broom in parts. Start with the handle and the straw band, as shown.

Step 4

Finish the broom by adding the straw detail. Then add the purple thin decorative border.

Lastly, add a thicker black border along the edge of the cookie.

Video Tutorial

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

Here's the completed set of all 4 pieces together.

I made another broom cookie, as well as a vacuum cookie. Feel free to make all three cookies as different brooms. It would look like a broom store display.
