Bat Cookies on a Stick

I did a guest post today for my friend Callye aka Sweet Sugar Belle. She was nice enough to let me show how I put cookies on a stick and cover them with the cute little paper straws.I know you don’t know this about me but I am a messy decorator! I have never once made a set of cookies on a stick without getting icing everywhere! I always get it on the stick! Every single time! I am so happy these cute little paper straws are available so I can hide my messiness!

Supplies:
Bat Cookie Cutter
15 Second Icing for the following colors:

  • Light Gray Icing
  • Dark Gray Icing
  • White Icing
  • Black Icing
  • Small Black Sprinkles (Optional for eyes)
  • Airbrush Gun

I chose to make these bats gray because I didn’t want to worry about the black icing tasting bad. To make them black, we are going to use an airbrush gun. I got mine at Karen’s Cookies and I love it. If you don’t have one, you can blend the black and gray icing together to get this effect.

  1. With the dark gray icing, outline the body of the bat by making jagged lines.
  2. Flood it in immediately.
  3. While the icing is still wet, use the light gray to add the inside of the ears.
  4. Bats don’t have bones in their wings but, use the light gray icing to outline the creepy non bone wing things!
  5. Let this dry for about 20 minutes.

Grab your airbrush gun and add a drop of the black color. You have to use airbrush colors that are made specifically for airbrushing. You can find them here.

  1. Set the airbrush machine on low.
  2. Hold the gun close to your cookie and ever so gently pull the trigger until you get a fine stream of black color.
  3. Outline the edge of the body with the black. Keep moving the brush. If you stop, you will get an ugly spot!
  4. Then, hold the gun farther away from the body and give it a very fine gentle spray.

Next, add the eyes with the white icing. You can add a black icing dot or you can add Wiltons Mixed Halloween Sprinkles.
Then, with the dark gray icing, flood every other section of the wings. Let it dry for about 20 minutes then flood the center sections.
Then, hold the airbrush gun close to your bat wings and spray the top and side edges like you did the body of the bat. Don’t directly spray the bottom of the wings so it will give a nice shade effect.

See the nice shading? This is why I love the airbrush gun.

  1. With the black icing and a small tip, make a line for the mouth.
  2. Next, with the white icing and a small tip, make fangs.
  3. With the dark gray icing, go over the the creepy non bone wing things again to give it a nice neat finished look.
  4. Let it dry.
