Zombie Cookies

Zombies seem to be everywhere these days. Could it be because Halloween is in a couple days? Possibly, but it seems as though zombies dominate all areas of media throughout the year. My husband’s favorite show is Walking Dead. All four of my kids love zombie video games. I happen to have love zombie movies. One of my favorite all time movies is I Am Legend and I really enjoyed the latest zombie big pic, World War Z. On my retail website (Country Kitchen SweetArt) “zombie” is currently one of the top search terms. These cute, not scary, zombie cookies are perfect for celebrating the undead! They are baked using cookie cutters from FRED. Order them here, then decorated with run sugar.

Skeletons and Pumpkins- Bright Treats for a Halloween Party

The following Halloween projects are perfect for simple treats that kids can help make. Bright colors were chosen, but you can give the treats a spookier look by using black and white instead. This was one of a project that was cut from my book, Decorate Cakes, Cupcakes, and Cookies with Kids. My son, Simon and my mom decorating a skeleton face cake, skeleton face and pumpkin cookies, skeleton bone caramel pretzels, and pumpkin donuts.

My assitant Theresa and I made several treats for a vampire-themed Halloween. I also gotta admit that I am a Twilight fan and am so looking forward to the last movie, part one of Breaking Dawn!
