Spookie Pumpkin Carriages in the 20+ Ways to Use a Pumpkin Cutter


The uber talented Callye from The Sweet Adventures of Sugarbelle asked me if I wanted to take part in her pumpkin cookie cutter challenge and I immediately said YES!!!!!  I was so excited and I’m not sure why; maybe it’s because I have two very vocal want to be princesses in my house but I automatically went to Cinderella’s carriage. However, it’s the wrong season, so I decided to spook it up a bit.  And just for fun I’m going to show you how I did it!

Make your favourite cookie dough and roll it out.  Use your pumpkin cutter and cut out a few.


Using a small circle cutter, or for me the open end of a large tip, make wheel holes and then wheels.

Using an edible market, sketch out your carriage.

Decorate and have fun!


Then there’s the placement for the photo shoot with my new purchases from Home Goods!
