  • 15-second consistency green and white royal icing
  • Piping-consistency black royal icing
  • Small round piping tip
  • Medium round piping tip
  • Disposable piping bags/li>
  • Black edible sugar pearls

Step-by-step directions

Step 1:

Outline and flood your circle cookie with the green royal icing.

(Not sure how to flood sugar cookies?

Step 2: 

While the green icing is still wet, pipe concentric white circles of royal icing. Before the icings dry, drag the cocktail stick through the circles of icing in multiple places, moving from the outer edge of the cookie inward.

Leave the cookie to crust over for an hour before moving to the next step. If you try to pipe the spider while the icing is still wet, you’ll end up with a black puddle that seeps into the other colors. Instead, you want your spider to sit on top of the icing.

Step 3:

With a bag of piping-consistency black royal icing with a small round piping tip, pipe the spider’s eight legs. Consider where your spider’s body will sit before piping.

Then, pipe the body and head between the legs using a larger round piping tip.

  • Disposable piping bags
  • Small plain round tip

Step-by-step directions

Step 1:

Outline and flood a half circle of black royal icing onto your cookie. 

Step 2:

With the same black royal icing and piping tip, add in the cauldron details. You need two small circles for the legs and two teardrop shapes at the ends of the top! Leave to crust over for an hour.

Step 3:

With the piping-consistency green and white royal icing, pipe a series of different sized pearls or bubbles on the upper half of the cookie. Don’t forget to add a few bubbles foaming down the side of the cauldron.

For an extra detail, you can sprinkle some edible glitter on top! Or, once the cookie has fully dried, paint a little green or white edible luster dusts on random bubbles.
