Witch Leg Cookies

Happy Halloween!

Do y'all ever feel like you are one person trying to do the job of fifteen people?

Well that's the story of my life. I try to do too many things at one time. It's as if I think I'm a super hero or something.....I did think I was Wonder Woman when I was little. Maybe it just stuck with me. 

I had all intentions of posting this tutorial before today, but it just didn't happen. Better late than never right?  

I just love witch legs. I think it's the striped tights, I'm not sure.  I think my four year old feels the same way because she is a witch every Halloween.  Always a different we can get new striped tights I'm sure. This year we wore purple, last year it was green. 

She told me she likes being a witch like her Iya (grandmother)......We tease that she is a witch all year round. It's our little joke with her grandmother and we all have fun with it......Iya too. 

To make these cookies you will need:

black royal icing
orange royal icing
green royal icing
colored non perils

outline cookie with black royal icing and a #2 tip
then with 20 second orange royal icing fill cookie leaving a gap before the black outline
let dry 

Next using 20 second green royal icing add legs
 add black stripes using a #1 tip and black icing. Do this while the green icing is still wet.
 Next add shoes 
 Then add the first row of the ruffle skirt 
 After first layer of ruffles are dry, add the second row.
 When the second row of ruffles are dry add the top row of ruffles.
 fill in the gap between the orange and the black outline with black royal icing
 while the black royal icing is still wet add the non perils
When the icing is dry, shake off the excess.
 allow cookie to dry overnight.

I hope everyone had a great Halloween. What did you or your kids dress up as? I went as an overworked mom of

Now it's time for me to go through my children's candy and make sure none of it is poisoned. To do this with great accuracy I must eat the candy.

HEY.....I gotta be sure it's safe. Right?
