For these cookies, I used the ghost cookie cutter that is included in the Wilton 101-Piece Cookie Cutter set. I started with a sketch. I traced the outside of the ghost cookie cutter and then sketched the figure of the genie inside the cookie cutter outline. I then used an Artograph projector to illuminate my sketch onto the cookies. This worked fairly well, but, even with my sketch, I had to adjust the position of the genie's arms and tail on the cookies every so often.
I began by outlining the face and body of the genie in blue and then added the red sash, gold cuffs, eyes (black outline filled in with white), and mouth. Then I flooded the genie's hands, chest, and tail in blue. All that was left was to add a few remaining details - mainly the line on the genie's chest, beard, and hair - and then let the cookies dry overnight. I drew the pupil of his eye, the black line across his mouth, and his nose with a black food dye marker.
