Halloween decorated sugar cookies -- mummy unicorns, spiders, ghosts, pumpkins and potions

Have you ever wondered if maybe auto-correct was actually invented as a culture-wide gas lighting experiment? I mean...think about it. You can type an entire text message with 100% accuracy and it comes out looking like my 3 year old is placing an order for 712.3 left footed socks from someone in Antarctica... in Dutch. How does that even make sense?! Maybe it started as some misguided college practical joke to impress a girl that got wildly out of hand until the original creator simply had to own it while still going to bed every night wondering -- "WHAT HAVE I DONE?!"

I always thought that it was supposed to have "learning" technology. For example...if I type the word "adorable" (hypothetically) 900 should be more likely to pop up than "atrocious" -- a word I have literally never typed on my phone. (I am SOOOOO sorry to whoever I left that comment for on Instagram last week. Your cookies were ADORABLE. I meant to say ADORABLE.) And every time I type the word "to" it comes up as "Rio".....because THAT makes sense.

Lately the word "cookies" has been coming up as "follies" and "unicorn" autocorrects to "UNICORN". (Because I clearly do NOT joke around about unicorns.) So these cookies are now Mummy UNICORN Follies. Want to make some Halloween follies with me?

How To Make Cute Mummy Unicorn Decorated Sugar Cookies For Halloween

Step 1. 

Use a wide flat brush to paint green colored icing across the eye area of the unicorn. Outline and fill the horn area with a medium consistency gray icing. Let dry for at least 15 minutes.

Step 2. 

Outline and fill the the main body area of the unicorn cookie with a medium consistency white icing. Add detail lines to the horn with the gray icing and a #1.5 tip. Let dry for an hour.

Step 3. 

Add the remaining back legs of the unicorn with a medium consistency white icing. Pipe the tail and two locks of the mane with a medium consistency black icing. Let dry for at least 15 minutes.

Step 4.

Pipe a dot of white icing in the eye area of the cookie. Immediately add a drop of purple icing and a drop of black icing. Pipe the tiniest amount of white icing where the black icing and purple icing meet. Paint the unicorn horn with silver airbrush coloring.

Step 5.

Add detail lines to the unicorn hair with the black icing and a #1.5 tip. Use a black food color marker to create the look of mummy bandages.
