For cookiers all over the world, I think that Halloween is a favorite time for decorating unique and creepy cookies. LOL. I hope you find this time of year to be lots of fun as I do .

I can't believe that I originally left out giving credit to Cookie Connection's own Julia Usher for the use of her wonderfully creative Halloween stencils.  @Julia M. Usher I'm convinced that using Julia's beautiful stencils adds a level of professionalism to anyone's decorated cookies! Thank you Julia...you do SO much for all of us ❤️❤️❤️.

I've tried to come up with a unique approach to decorating the central cookie. I have long admired Lorena Rodriguez and her magnificently decorated fondant cookies @Lorena Rodriguez. Lorena's work always has great attention to detail which is the hallmark of well made cookie design/s. In my humble opinion, Lorena has taken her decorated cookies to the next level of creativity and beauty with fondant.

Since I've not worked with fondant extensively, this particular cookie ended up being more challenging to make. In spite of a few sketches, I still struggled with the finished design. I'm still not crazy about it but feel like this was a great learning experience for me. Next time will be easier, I hope .

The "pirate" dress inspiration comes from an actual Halloween costume. I made quite a few modifications to the design but think that the overall feel of it turned out ok.

Happy Halloween decorating y'all

I absolutely LOVE your incredible, creative stencils that continue to bring a level of professionalism to my own cookie decorating that I otherwise wouldn't have. Thank you my dear cookie friend ❤️❤️

Oh, thanks so much. But I wasn't angling for any mention of my products with my remarks; I just wanted you to know that I appreciated what you did with them.

Giving credit where it is due is something that has become VERY important to me. I'm so glad you mentioned my use of your stencils.
