Crusting-When the royal icing begins to harden on the surface while the royal icing under the surface is wet.
- Bake a batch of sugar cookies and make a batch of royal icing.
- Cut out the skull cookies and bake them according to the recipe directions.
- Cover the royal icing with plastic wrap and place it in an airtight container until your ready to use it.
- You only need one consistency of royal icing to make these scary Halloween Sugar Cookies. Outline and flood with the 15-second icing. You just need to let the outline dry before you begin to flood the cookies.
- Be sure to let the cookies cool completely before you begin to decorate.
- Outline with 15-second icing and let it dry for about ten minutes.
- Here is where things can get a little scary. The cookie is so large the icing can begin to form a crust on the surface before you can get it flooded. The cookie cutter is 5.87″ x 1″ x 7.68″ so think of how you want to flood it. I suggest you start on one side (I chose the right side), work your way to the other side, down in the mouth area, and then move up to the top of the cookie. If you divide the cookie into three areas (only in your mind) and work in the same area, you’ll be able to manage the crusting issue. You can see more in the video.
- Flood the rest of the cookie and place it in front of a fan to dry. Letting the fan dry the royal icing will make it dry with a shine. If you’re looking for a matt finish just let it dry without a fan.

You can make these scary Halloween skull sugar cookies a lot scarier if you add more detail. I may add some airbrushing around the edges or I may eat it!
