Two posts in a week is a little bit strange for me, but I was so excited about this project that came to play over the weekend. After Cookie Camp, I was so inspired by the talent that I had the urge to create something out of the ordinary.
About a year ago, I bought these candy boxes from Papermart. I had plans to do something with them, but they ended up being to small. So I was stuck with 50 candy boxes and they sat in my closet until this weekend.
I was inspired by two very talented cookie artists, Lilaloa and Karen’s Cookies. Lilaloa’s Halloween Cookies and Karen’s Cookie Halloween Cookies, became my inspiration for this idea. You don’t necessarily have to have specific shaped cookie cutters to decorate cookies.
My FIRST design was based on the famous candy…Candy Corn!
During this time of the year, I can’t get enough of candy corn! So I thought this was a cute idea.
My SECOND idea was simple, but so darn cute!
And here’s how they look inside the box.
My LAST design was actually my first design when I came up with this cookie in a box idea. I think this is my favorite pumpkin cookie I’ve ever decorated.
The placement of the cookies end up being a nice surprise. You think you’re getting a box of orange cookies that say “Happy Halloween” but it actually is a cookie puzzle!
Here’s the complete set.
Many thanks to Glorious Treats for great photography tips!!!
Hope you enjoyed this post as much as I liked designing the cookies!
Wishing you and your family a Happy Halloween!!!
