It's officially autumn here and fall cookies are in full swing in the Semi Sweet household. This usually means there's also an abundance of pumpkin-colored icing lying around.

One design I love making in the fall are foxes because they share the same burnt orange icing as pumpkin cookies. It's less prep work for two totally different designs.

For this tutorial, I'll be decorating the thin fox cookies from this new autumn woodland set. I broke down the decorating steps below.

Thin Fox Cookie Cutter

This thin fox cookie cutter is part of this new 4-piece autumn woodland set.

Each of these cookies are 4-inches tall and about 2.3-inches in width. As a collection, they fit perfectly in this BRP long cookie box (12" x 5" x 1.5"). You can purchase these cookie cutters as the 4-piece set, or each one individually.

Template for the Autumn Woodland Cookies

To help with the decorating process, I made a PDF template available for all the new autumn designs, including this new fox cookie, as a guideline.

You can download the all the 2021 Fall 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 fall pumpkin truck cookies, you will need the following suggested colors:

Step 1

Begin by filling in the lower face with white icing and the body section with orange icing. Let this icing set.

Then fill in the upper part of the head with orange, the scarf section with teal, and the tail with wet-on-wet orange and white icing.

Step 2

Next, finish the base layer by filling in the ear sections. Also add the small tail to the scarf, as shown.

Add the face details like the black eyes and nose. Then add the top, longer scarf tail. You can totally stop here and call it done. Or, you can move on to the next step.

Step 3

Now these steps are optional. Because I couldn't leave well enough alone, I decided to draw on eyebrows for personally.

I also outlined the head, tail, and scarf for definition. (Although, I don't know if it needed it.)

Video Tutorial

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

Here's the finished autumn fox cookies, along with the other designs in this set.

In this collection you can find the thin owl, mushroom pair, and the acorn and leaf cutters.

For gift packaging options, I love this BRP long cookie box (12" x 5" x 1.5"). All four cookies fit perfectly with wiggle room to seal them in heat-sealed cello bags.
