Scard-E Cat Cookies

I love to scare people but, I don’t like to be scared. I know, it is kinda mean to scare someone and not like them to get even with you. One of the worst scares I have had in my life was by a cat. A big ole bobcat! I wanted to make Scard-E Cat Cookies as a reminder to not sneak around by myself at night. I will tell you my story.

Scar-D-Cat Cookies

I was working really late one night at the camp office and I heard something outside. It was about 3 am and I thought it was someone from our staff but, when I went outside, I accidentally walked up on a bobcat! I scared it half to death and it scared me half to death! It jumped and ran one way and I jumped and ran the other way. I have NEVER been that scared before and hope I am never that scared again!

Supplies for Scared-E Cat Cookies:

Black 15 Second Icing
Wilton Pearlized Sprinkles
Gourmet Writer Food Black Pen
Circle Cookies Cut in Half for Feet

Scar-D-Cat Cookies thebearfootbaker.comI love making cat cookies that stand up and it is very simple to do. You make these Ant Cookies. Look around at your cookie cutters and see how many you can make stand. They really are cute on a dessert table standing beside some cute cupcakes.

  1. Use 2 circles cut in half for the feet.
  2. Do not decorate the circles first.
  3. Attach them to the cat’s feet with icing and let them dry overnight.
  4. Make sure they are even on the bottom so they will stand straight when they are dry.

Scar-D-Cat Cookies

  1. Lay the cat cookies flat but, use a couple of extra feet to slip under the top of the cat so the icing will dry flat and not run off your cookie.
  2. Outline and flood the feet.
  3. Outline and flood the cat.
  4. While the icing is wet, add the sprinkle eyes and let it dry overnight.

Now stand them up and look at the good job you did! The kids are going to love these and I really don’t think they will scare anyone but, it is a good reminder not to go walking in the mountains alone at 3 am! I am SO glad it wasn’t a bear because bear cookies would not work as well for Halloween.

Here are a few more things to make with the kids for Halloween:
Jack-O-Lantern Cupcakes
Dracula Cupcakes
Frankenstein and the Bride of Frankenstein Cupcakes
3-D Spider Cookies
Chocolate Covered Homemade Marshmallows

Happy Creating,



  1. Holy moly – a bobcat?! How scary! I’ve managed to avoid any encounters with scary animals, though I was chased by a rooster when I was little. Oh, and a swan too. I guess I have more problems with fowls than felines :)

    Oh, and these are awesome, of course :) I have a super soft spot for black cats and love seeing them on cookies!

  2. I sure hope you didn’t forget to pound on something in case it was a bear!! Made some black cats yesterday, only mine aren’t too scary – plus they’re laying down. Love that your cats are ready to pounce!!

  3. I’m right there with ya about scaring others but hate being scared yourself. Also, I love that these cookies stand up! Kids will surely get a kick out of that.

  4. OOH, these are so cool! The little half circles to make it stand is so smart!! I need to go look at my cutters now and see what I want to make stand! =)

  5. Oh my gosh! I think I would have died right then! How scary! Who knew such fright could bring on such inspiration!

    These are so cute! I love how you make your tutorials look so easy! Genius with those feet!!

  7. i just wanna tell you that i think you are really cool. everything you do is pretty much outstandingly (new word) creative!

  8. He’s definitely a scaredy cat! A bobcat..yikes! Too close for comfort! Once when I was on a bike ride on a country road at dusk a coyote ran right across the road in front of me…I rode faster than ever and never looked back!!!
