Gingerbread Skeletons and Mummies

When I saw these adorable gingerbread cookies that Rosie of Rosie Bakes a 'Peace' of Cake made, I knew instantly this is what I wanted to bake with my kids for Halloween. I just couldn't resist, they are so cute!

My husband suggested another monster to bake, like mummies. So we played around with royal icing and this is what we came up with. You like the glowing red eyes?My boys liked cutting up these monsters. We all got really involved in the process, I didn't get a chance to take pictures! These cookies were given to their schoolmates and teachers today (and a few munched by us) who all thought they were adorable. They were such a big hit we're planning to make more for Friday.
