Puffy Pumpkin Cookies from SugarBelle
Hi, I’m Callye from The Sweet Adventures of SugarBelle,
and I LOVE decorating sugar cookies.
The thing that makes decorated cookies so fun is that everyone loves them. They get ooohs and awes whenever they appear. You just have to know a few little tricks and tips, and you can take amazing,
Take pumpkins for example.
Flat is cute, but puffy pumpkins are adorable.

For tips on coloring and preparing royal icing, click here.
To begin, outline the pumpkin in sections using orange fitted with a #2 tip. I like to begin in the middle and work out. This helps to keep the sections uniform. If you need a little help with outlining and flooding, click here.
Next, fill in alternating sections of the pumpkins. Let them dry for and hour or so.
Next come back and fill the remaining sections. The separation between the wet and dry icing will create the nice dimensional look of a real pumpkin.
Use green piping icing to add a stem, also using a #2 tip.
Fill in the stem and let dry compltely, about 8 hours or overnight.
When the cookies are dry you’ll be left with adorable and perfectly plump pumpkins. If you’d like, you can use a #1 tip to add little vines around the stem, but I like them simple too.
I hope you will use this tip to add dimension and interest to all your cookie projects. In the meantime, I’m always working on some kind of cookie project. I hope you will come visit me and share in my adventures on my blog, The Sweet Adventures of SugarBelle!
