How to make polka dot pumpkin decorated sugar cookies: 

Step 1.

With a medium consistency orange icing and a #3 tip, outline and fill the center segment of the pumpkin. While the icing is still wet, drop dots of medium consistency white icing on the surface of the orange icing. Let dry for 30 minutes, or until the surface of the icing has crusted.

Step 2. 

Outline and fill the outside segments of the pumpkin with the same medium consistency orange icing. Add dots of white icing while the orange icing is still wet. Let dry for an hour. 

Step 3. 

With a THICK consistency brown icing, pipe 3 dots of icing and drag the tip to connect them into a leaf shape. Pipe a stem and a vine on the pumpkin with medium consistency brown icing and a #3 tip. Let dry for 30 minutes.

Step 4. 

With the THICK consistency brown icing and a #1.5 tip, add detail lines on the stem, vine, and leaf.
