Decorated Halloween sugar cookies - unicorn mummies, potion bottles, spiders, pumpkins and ghosts

I realized today that my definition of "adventure" has changed slightly since I became a parent. I used to be a cliff-jumping, rock-climbing, white water rafting guide that backpacked through Yellowstone for my honeymoon. (⇇ Not kidding. It was awesome...but not entirely advisable.)

This morning I went on a MID WEEK hike. I didn't even wait for Saturday you guys. I threw caution to the wind and just went for it. I even climbed across a boulder field where a rock actually shifted when I stepped on it. But the adventure did NOT END THERE my friends -- I ate not just one...but THREE apples from a wild apple tree. And then, I must have lost my head, because when I got home I put my daughter's very favoritest of all unicorns in the washing machine - 10 minutes before preschool ended. I AM LIVING ON THE EDGE!!!!

Thank goodness I have some of these unicorn cookies just in case things go horribly, horribly wrong at any point during the wash/dry cycle. Want to make some?

Step by step mummy unicorn decorated sugar cookie tutorial

How to make cute and easy mummy unicorn face decorated cookies for Halloween.

Step 1.

Use a wide, flat brush to paint green icing on the eye area of the unicorn cookie. 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 rest of the cookie with a medium consistency white icing. Leave a space in the center for the eyes. It does not even remotely need to be perfect. Add detail lines to the unicorn horn with the gray icing and a #1.5 tip. Let dry overnight, or for at least 6 hours.

Step 3. 

Use silver luster dust or silver airbrush spray to pain the unicorn horn silver. Use a black food color marker to add bandage details all over the place. Haphazard and random works pretty well here.

Step 4. 

Pipe a dot of white icing for an eye. Immediately add a dot of colored icing on top and then a dot of black icing. Finish with a very small dot of white icing where the color and black icing meet. Let dry for 5 minutes.

Step 5.

Repeat for the second eye. Some of my mummies had eyes that were the same size and some of them had one much larger eye. You can do what you want. I won't boss your cookies.
