Pumpkin Top Cookie (Tutorial)




To make Pumpkin Top Cookies you will need:

  • Circle or Oval Cookies (Any size 3" or above)
  • Circle Cookies (about 1" circles)
  • Leaf Cookie (optional)
  • Brown 10-Second Glaze
  • Orange 10-Second Glaze
  • Green 10-Second Glaze (optional)
  • Americolor Gels (Brown, Gold, Orange, White)
  • Paintbrush 
  • Almond Extract
 You'll need one or two circle or oval cookies for your pumpkin top.
For the stem you'll need 2-3 round cookies.
Optional: One leaf cookie

"Glue" the two or three small circles  together with brown glaze for the stem.
Outline the top cookie with brown glaze and then flood all the sides of the "stem".
After 15-20 min, go back and flood the top of the stem.
Allow it to dry overnight.

If stacking two cookies for the pumpkin, glue them together with orange glaze first.
Outline the segments on the pumpkin top with a #4 round tip.
Allow to dry for at least 30 minutes before flooding ever other segment.


Once the first set of segments have dried 30+ min,  flood the remaining segments.
Allow to dry overnight.

Optional: If you are adding a leaf to the pumpkin top, outline the leaf and flood the sides of the cookie.
After 30 min, flood the top of the leaf. Dry overnight.

Use Americolor gels ( Brown, Gold, Orange, White) to
create some colors to shade the pumpkin and stem.
(Use the almond extract to thin the gels.)


Glue the stem onto the top of the pumpkin with brown glaze.

 

Optional: Glue the leaf onto the top of the pumpkin.

The "paint" will make the pumpkin tacky for a while, so I let mine dry over another night.
