We had a cookie decorating class where really cool spider web cookies were made!

We mixed up royal icing in two consistencies. Use stiff royal icing with a number two tip to pipe an outline around the cookie.

Thin the royal icing and use a bottle to flood the area inside the outline.

While the icing is still wet, pipe a spiral on top of the cookie using a number 2 tip.

Use a toothpick to pull through the icing to create the spider web.

Practice piping a spider a couple of times.

Spider is made with thick royal icing in a pastry bag with a number 2 tip.

When you are feeling great about your spiders, pipe one directly on the spider web.

You can even make spider webs in cool colors!
