Creative Pumpkins

This month's theme for the Cake Central Cookie Club is "non-Halloween cookies you can make using Halloween cutters." I decided to make a wedding cookie shaped like Cinderella's pumpkin carriage.

The tricky part was getting the wheels to stay on. I used thick glace icing to attach the wheels to the carriage and some folded up napkins to hold them in place until the icing dried.

The cookie is decorated with glace icing, fondant, sugar pearls, and gold luster dust. I used my parents' initials for the monogram. I wish I hadn't added the luster dust...I think it looked prettier without it. Sometimes simpler is better.

I made this cookie for my sister's birthday, using her initials piped down the center.

Pumpkin Cut Out Cookies


  1. Love it as usual! Love how you decided to add some luster dust--totally gave it an awesome twist! See! What an elegant pumpkin that is!

  2. Who knew a pumpkin could be so beautiful?!

  3. How beautiful! They look like something out of a Cinderella story...

  4. Super cute. I have only done cookies once and they were so much work...for now I'll stick to cupcakes and cakes.

  5. Thank you, Cristy! You're right, cookies are definitely time consuming, but a lot of fun for me! :o)
