Weeping Angel Costume from Doctor Who

My six year old daughter had a Doctor Who themed birthday party this year--and in fact, what she really wanted was a Weeping Angel party.  She graciously allowed me to do Doctor Who more generally (so as not to completely freak out her other first grade friends), as long as I promised to make her a weeping angel costume for Halloween.

Delightfully Disgusting and Delicious Bug Sugar Cookies

Not a tutorial for you today.  We're busy on the last of our vacation in England, getting ready to fly back home, so just a few spooky cookies to get you in the Halloween spirit for today.

When I was designing the Bat Cavern Trunk or Treat, I tried to really go with the theme, and think of what bats like to eat.  Some eat fruit, but most of them eat bugs.  Lots and lots of bugs.  That's one of the reasons I like bats!  So bugs it was--in cookie form, for our human guests.
