Stencil FIRST to easily create stunning pumpkins. The stencil is quick and will make your cookies look perfect each time. Add a pop of airbrush to bring the drama!

It's pretty neat (and easy to make these). The trick is just to stencil FIRST before flooding the cookie.

Be sure to match your cutter up to the stencil before you get started. 

See how the spider fits better on the 4" pumpkin (on the left). But, the Jack-o-Lantern face fits better on the 3" pumpkin cutter. 

Plus, silhouette stencils (like the spider, witch, faces) seem to work better. They have big solid areas to pipe around. 

Here's another look at this same concept with the Jack-o-lantern faces:

I hope you'll give this technique a try! If you do, tag or share photos...I'd love to see your twist on it!

Happy Decorating,
