These cookies were left over from my recent sugar cookie project. I also had a ton of black royal icing left over. Luckily, I needed a teat to take to Mandy's anyway. Spiderwebs are super easy with royal icing, all you need is a toothpick. Simply pipe and flood your background with whatever color you desire (I chose white and orange). Then take black flood icing and make three circles to look like a bull's eye. Then, starting from the inside, drag a toothpick through the black and background icing at regular intervals to the outside of the cookie. Allow to dry overnight. The spider bodies are a royal icing "blob" made with a Wilton #12 tip and the legs were piped with a Wilton #1 tip. If you can, give the spiders a few hours to dry a bit as well before taking them anywhere.
