Attention crafters and zombie fans...
Gingerbread man cookie cutter is not just for Christmas anymore!
Must admit I am a fan of the AMC show The Walking Dead.
The first episode of this season had as close of a "happy ending" as that show may ever get. Most of the favorite characters are united and out of immediate danger (for now). Whew!
Since this season's opener was SO terrific, I have a hard time deciding if I'll keep watching, but it'll be hard to resist. To celebrate the show, I just had to make some fun treats for my mother-in-law. She's a big fan as well and I love that we have this fan-dom in common.
The key to zombie gray-green icing is this food coloring combo:
one drop red, one drop blue, one drop green.
A little bit more green gives a fresher "dead" look, like I added to these little cookies...
Red gel food coloring can be added on top of the icing, using a toothpick to paint on a face or little gory details. I made a few more gray, decaying zombies and zombie parts and added them to the bag as well, but kept the "fresher" zombies peering out the semi transparent bag.
Silly me, it's hard to post photos of some of my most icky zombies, even though they are just cookies, but...eeek! This one I decided is approved for all audiences though..
This is a good month to work on these kind of treats since they would be great for Halloween too!
Happy crafting everyone!
