If you’ve ever struggled to make black frosting, here’s a hint.  Always start with chocolate frosting.   I’ve never successfully colored white frosting black, it always ends up gray.  Chocolate is totally the way to go.  I use McCormick’s Black Food Coloring.

Oh, and I apologize if you now have the Janet Jackson song “Black Cat” stuck in your head.  Or is that just me?

My daughter and I had fun decorating our cookies with some other candies as well.  I love using candy to decorate cookies.  Heck, I’m even writing a book about it!  (Smart Cookie – coming Fall 2014!).

Decorating Cookies With Candy

Witches Hat Cookies

Witches hat cookies made by setting chocolate ice cream cones (The Cone Guys Cones are the ones I use) onto the frosting and then placing SweetWorks Pearls around the base and finishing with a candy square for a buckle.

    Christi your treats are always so beautifully photographed! I really love the purple and green donuts (doughnuts) you shared. Do you remember what colors you used? I clicked on the McCormick link and the page is no longer available. Don’t know if that means the colors went bye bye too. Just love them. Great job!

      Tina, I don’t recall exactly but I used the McCormick Neon Colors a lot – probably more than the standard set, so most likely it’s from those. Thanks so much.
