Easy Royal Icing Spiderman Cookies Recipe.
Do you love Spiderman? In honor of the release of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse on Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital Download*, I have whipped up some adorable and super easy Spider-Man Cookies. Let’s dig into these cookies and talk about why we love this movie! Be sure to check out our other DVD reviews.
I’m super excited to talk about this new Spider-Man title. The awesome comic book style is so enjoyable to watch and the story is witty and fun. My kids and I have had a blast watching it together and then of course playing Spider-Man…I mean isn’t that what moms are supposed to do!!!! Spider-Man has always been one of my favorite superheroes and this story is no exception. Here is some info on the spec of the film:
SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE arrives filled with engaging bonus materials that are fun for the whole family and give fans even more of the unique comic book style action that they loved in theaters with over 90 minutes of bonus content. In his very own original short, Spider-Ham: Caught In a Ham, fan favorite Spider-Ham defeats his greatest foe, delivers sidesplitting puns, and get sucked into another dimension! It actually can get weirder! Don’t miss the thrilling Alternate Universe Mode where fans can view the film in an entirely new way to discover alternate scenes, plotlines, characters, and more with the filmmakers as their guide. Also included is The Spider-Verse Super-Fan Easter Egg Challenge, where fans are challenged to find every single Easter Egg hidden within the Spider-Verse (and there are a lot of them!). Explore the character design in the visually stunning film including specific looks at the now-iconic Spider-Ham character as well as the classic villains who inhabit the Spider-Verse. Additional special features include a celebration of the diversity in the film and the idea that anyone can wear the mask in a feature called We Are Spider-Man, a featurette called Spider-Verse: A New Dimension, where fans can hear from the artists and filmmakers who pushed the boundaries of the comic book artform to create a visual experience unlike anything done in animation before, a showcase of all the amazing fan favorite characters featured in the Spider-Verse and the actors who bring them to life, and a touching tribute to comic legends Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, who originally created the Spider-Man character. Other bonus materials include two lyric videos featuring “Sunflower” by Post Malone and Swae Lee and “Familia” by Nicki Minaj and Anuel AA (feat. Bantu).
So to celebrate this fun movie, I decided to do some baking. (Let’s be clear…I don’t really need that many excuses to bake!!). We made some yummy Spider-Man inspired Spider cookies!!
These cookies are fun and simple to make. You do need some basic cookie decorating tools, however, and a little experience with royal icing.
Spider-Man Sugar Cookies Recipe:
- Piping bag, Icing tip 1/2, coupler, and clip. I recommend this piping tip set. It’s reasonably priced and includes everything you need.
- Royal Icing. You can buy that mix or here is a great royal icing recipe to use!!
- Sugar Cookies. Make them or buy them…it’s up to you:) Sometimes starting with store bought cookies speeds the process up!
- Round cookie cutter (skip if buying already made cookies)
- Parchment paper
- Gel Food coloring
Prepare the cookie dough per the recipe. Once the cookies are ready to cut, roll the dough out to 1/4 inch thick. I find that thicker cookies actually bake the best and are the most tasty. Cut the dough into the desired size of cookies. Place them on parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Bake per recipe. Be careful not to over-bake the cookies…pull them out of the oven BEFORE they start to brown. Allow the cookies to cool and transfer to parchment covered counter or rack. Do not decorate until cookies are completely cool. I prefer to bake the cookies the day before I decorate them.
Prepare the royal icing. You want to make both red and black (or gray…I used gray!) icing. The red icing should be 15 second icing that is easy to pipe for a border and fill in the cookie. The black should be piping consistency. Put the coupler and tip or just tip into the piping bag and fill with icing.
Tip: I put my icing onto plastic wrap and twist the wrap up until I have a tail to push through the bottom of the piping bag. I then cut the tail and attach the tip to my coupler. This saves time and mess!!
Outline the cookies with red icing. Fill the center of the cookie with red and using a toothpick, rub out any imperfections in the icing. Allow the icing to dry. Once dried, using the black frosting, make two X’s (like slicing a pizza). Starting in the center, draw curved lines with icing from line to line making a spiderweb design. Allow to dry.
Your delicious cookies are now ready to eat! My Spidey-senses are telling me you are going to rock at decorating these cookies! Enjoy your baking and also enjoy your Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse movie!!
