The colors for the leaves came out better than I anticipated. I was especially happy with the rusty red maple leaf. I was going for the color palette of the plate below, and it came pretty darn close. I used variations of orange, brown, burgundy and copper for these cookies.
I still can't figure out how to make the broom look like a broom. It keeps coming out looking like a spatula. The green has some yellow added to it to make it more electric green.
And the mini cookies were more fun than I thought. A little cookie and icing goes a long way when making miniature cookies like this. They are perfect size for little hands, and make sharing a breeze. The Halloween candy bowl is full of chocolate fun size bars, so I think we are ready for trick-or-treaters now.
Hope your week goes well, and don't forget to Fall Back an hour on Sunday, November 3rd.
