Spooky Rose Cookies with Creepy Fondant Spiders

Have you made rose swirl cookies yet? Have you made them with creepy fondant spiders? Spiders freak me out because they can crawl on anything at any time and I think they should crawl onto your cookies this Halloween.

Let’s think outside of the box for a minute. When I think of spiders, I think spider webs, but keep in mind you don’t have to make spider web cookies every time you want to make some creepy spiders. Instead, you can make rose cookies and it will probably be more spooky than spider webs.

Supplies for Spooky Rose Cookies with Creepy Fondant Spiders:

Round Cookies any size
Thick Orange Royal Icing – I added a drop of brown to Wilton Orange
Piping bag and a #1M
Fondant Spiders
Optional

  • Cookie Pop Sticks
  • Thick White Icing
  • If you don’t want to use royal icing, you can make them with buttercream frosting. Just be careful because buttercream doesn’t dry hard like royal icing so if you stack them, they could get damaged.

This time I want to show you how to make them on a stick and I made a video you will find towards the end of this post so you can see it in action.

Just remember when making rose swirl cookies you need to remember 2 things.

  1. Your icing consistency is very important. The royal icing needs to be thick!
  2. The decorating bag needs to be at 90° angle while you are making the roses.

That is all there is to making these spooky rose cookies.

Begin by finding the center of the cookie. Hold the bag at a 90° and start piping in a circular motion. Simple Spooky Rose Cookies with Creepy Fondant Spiders | The Bearfoot BakerContinue the circular motion until you reach the edge of the cookie.

Pipe some thick icing in the center of the back of the cookie. Place a cookie stick pop in the icing and let it dry completely.

You can use a baking rack to help hold the cookie stick in place so they dry nice and straight.

See how simple and fast these cookies are to make!
