Servings: 12 cookies


  • Baking Sheet
  • Wax Paper
  • Electric Mixer
  • Spatula


  • 12 Sugar Cookies pre-made
  • 6 ounces White Fondant
  • Cornstarch for rolling
  • 1/2 stick Butter softened
  • 1 cup Confectioner's Sugar
  • 4 tbsp Milk
  • Black Decorating Frosting
  • 24 Candy Googly Eyes


  • Ensure that your cookies are cool before decorating. Start by prepping your fondant “bandages.” Line a baking sheet with wax paper and set aside.
  • Lightly dust a clean working surface with cornstarch. Also, add some on your rolling pin.
  • Roll out your fondant so that it’s about 1/4 of an inch thick. Cut into long strips and set carefully on your lined baking sheet.
  • Time for the buttercream: using an electric mixer, beat butter, confectioners’ sugar, and milk on medium speed. Gradually increase to high until smooth. Your buttercream is ready once it forms semi-stiff peaks.
  • Using an offset spatula, spread buttercream on each cookie.
  • At the top of your cookie, around where you’d place your mummy’s eyes, spread a small dollop of black decorating icing. Top it with your candy googly eyes.
  • This is where the fun starts: start spreading your fondant strips on random parts of your cookies. Trim where necessary.

If you find your buttercream too runny, you can add more icing sugar, 1 tbsp at a time. If it’s too thick, add 1 tbsp of milk at a time.
