Vampire Teeth Cookies – 13 Days of Halloween Cookie Decorating
It’s Day 8 of our 13 Days of Halloween cookie decorating tutorials. The number eight is my favorite number, so I thought it would be fun to do a popular Halloween dessert – vampire teeth cookies.
These vampire teeth cookies pair perfectly with my vampire bite cookies that I did a tutorial for last year.
To decorate these vampire fang cookies yourself, I have included both a video and step-by-step photo series tutorial. You will see me using a palette knife to smooth the buttercream frosting. This technique has become one of my favorite ways to smooth buttercream for cookies.
These vampire teeth sugar cookies would also be perfect for a vampire themed party or Twilight themed party. I haven’t ever read the Twilight series, but I know there is a huge fan base!

Part 1: Gathering the Supplies for the Vampire Teeth Cookies
To make these decorated buttercream vampire cookies for your Halloween party, you will want to gather:
- 3 Icing bags
- Wilton #1, #2, and #5 tip sizes – buy these individually at a bake supply store or purchase this kit
- Vampire teeth cookie cutter – I used the one in this set which includes cookie cutters used for my other Halloween decorating tutorials as well
- Wilton black and Wilton red gel food dyes, I’ve found the best price at Walmart
- Palette knife
- Ingredients for a crusting buttercream, find my crusting buttercream icing recipe here
- Ingredients for sugar cookie dough, find my no spread sugar cookies recipe here
Part 2: Baking the Cookies and Setting up The Icing Bags
- Roll, cut out, and bake your sugar cookies according to the recipe. You will be able to make about 24 sugar cookies with the cookie cutter & recipes linked above.
- Make your buttercream icing and take out one cup of frosting and mix in the red food dye. Then, add that to an icing bag with the tip #2 in it.
- Remove another cup of frosting, mix in the black gel food dye, and add that frosting to an icing bag with the tip #1 in it.
- Add the white frosting to an icing bag with the tip #5 in it until the frosting is to the max fill line.
