Frankenstein and Monster Cookie Tutorials

Let's be honest. I made a lot of different square cookies. And I, personally, adore those little guys. And I have a tutorial for every single one of them. But you don't love me enough to read one eternally long post detailing each cookie. Not all in one sitting at least. So I broke it up into pieces. But in a good way. Not in a China vase falling off the top shelf kind of way.

Oh, and for all of you that don't know this -- I use just ONE consistency of icing. It's roughly 12-15 second icing. But do what you want. If you like your cookies with a piped outline and a flooded middle, then go right ahead and do that. Just outline each area first and fill in. You know, just like you always do. 


This guy is seriously my favorite. But don't tell the other cookies I said that. First -- make a square cookie. I'm just going to assume you can do that all by yourself. Pipe a jagged line across the top of the cookie and fill in the rest of the square. Let it dry for an hour (or 6 if you have super humidity issues.)

And then forget to take a picture of the next part because you're just so excited about finishing it. And ruin your tutorial. And let the world hate you. Then hide in your closet eating ice cream with your children. And then come back and fill in the jagged part with black icing for hair.

Just real quick -- I did this two different ways. They both have nearly the same outcome. And I'm probably insane for caring.... See the guy on the left? I piped that black icing real quick and moved on. Seriously, I don't even know if you can tell, but the guy on the right has slightly more jagged hair. I like it pointy. So after piping THAT black icing, I went back with a toothpick and gently pulled each lock to more of a point over the top of the green icing. insane with me if you want. Or be efficient. It's totally up to you.

Then pipe on some big ol' white dots for the eyeballs. Let it sit for about 2 minutes and then add the black dots on the eyes. Pipe a tiny green dot for the nose. Then you can either pipe on the mouth and the stitches or use a black food marker. And then love him forever.


Umm, this one is real easy. You're gonna love it. Probably. As long as you're into that whole making-easy-and-cute-monster-cookies thing.

First, cover a square cookie with purple icing. I used Americolor's electric purple in case you were wondering. And, I just have to say that this cookie really is square. My camera is actually magic. It somehow manages to turn squares into trapezoids. Every time. Seriously. I'm not kidding. This is not just some excuse for a poorly cut out cookie.  I can tell you don't believe me. That's cool. I don't mind. Just be sure to let your cookie dry for an hour or so.

Add 3 white dots for eyes. I found it easiest to put the middle dot on first and then the outside ones. It helped with centering. (And clearly, I could use some help with that!)  Then pipe a half circle in green for the mouth, pulling up just a bit on the sides. Let those two dry for about 2 minutes and then add the tiny green dot for the eyeballs and little white dots for the teeth. Again, I'm obsessed with toothpicks and used one to pull the teeth into more of a point. But, little round teeth are cute, too.
