Spider Web Cookies

    Posted by  ·  October 14, 2010

    We had a cookie decorating class where really cool spider web cookies were made!

    We mixed up royal icing in two consistencies. Use stiff royal icing with a number two tip to pipe an outline around the cookie.

    Thin the royal icing and use a bottle to flood the area inside the outline.

    While the icing is still wet, pipe a spiral on top of the cookie using a number 2 tip.


    Use a toothpick to pull through the icing to create the spider web.

    Practice piping a spider a couple of times.

    Spider is made with thick royal icing in a pastry bag with a number 2 tip.

    When you are feeling great about your spiders, pipe one directly on the spider web.

    You can even make spider webs in cool colors!
