Step 4: Flood the pumpkin slice with orange flood icing.

Option to add airbrush plaid as I did here in the picture using Cookie Countess airbrush stencil

Step 2:  Use Blue piping icing to letter on the cookie.  I used the fill-in method here meaning on the downward strokes I did an outline then fill in the middle with blue flood icing

Now you have a beautiful sugar cookie platter that looks just like a perfect pumpkin pie, but you can bag up the cookies to let everyone take them home and enjoy them, or make them into a beautiful centerpiece that is great as a hostess gift for whoever is serving up Thanksgiving dinner this year!
