Everywhere I look I see glittery pumpkins. I have seen several, “How to Glitter a Pumpkin” tutorials and it made me want to run out and buy a big ole bucket of glitter and give my pumpkins some bling. I thought about it and had every intention of doing it until I opened my box of sprinkles. When I saw the orange Disco Dust sparkling before my eyes, I knew what I was going to make! Glittery Pumpkin Cookies! Yeah baby!
I know you have seen me use this Margarita cutter before and you will probably see me use it again. It makes a perfect cake stand and candlestick. I might think of some other way to use it before the holidays are over. Anyway, cut the glass and the pumpkin so the pumpkin will fit on top of the “candlestick.” Place them together and bake.
Then, while it is wet, cover with Disco Dust and let it dry for about 20 minutes.
Then, with your brown icing, outline and flood the base and the little ball (whatever it is called) at the narrow part of the candlestick and the stem. Let it dry for about 20 minutes. Continue adding little groove things until you get the candlestick complete. I have made 3 different kinds to show you that there is no right way or wrong way to do this. Make the candlestick the way you want it or mix it up like I did. The point is, have fun!
I love getting cookie inspiration from home decor. There are so many cute decorating ideas that can easily transformed into cute cookies. I think these pumpkins would look great white sitting on a black candlestick. If you make one, I would love for you to tag me on Facebook.
