First you make your basic gingerbread men, you can use your own recipe but the one i used is as follows;
Classic Gingerbread Cookies
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
2/3 cup butter
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup molasses
Mix dry ingredients in one bowl mix wet in another bowl and then combine.
Cooking says 375' for 7Min's,
I did 350' for 5 Min's, so they would be tender and chewy like i like them, if you like yours crisper though, go with the recipe

While they are cooling you can mix up your icing.
Powdered Sugar Icing;
2 cups powdered sugar
2 or 3 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla.
Add more icing sugar to make it thicker or more milk to make it smoother. I found i had to add more icing sugar to make it a good thickness.
First i covered the cookies in a pale Green icing to give them the zombie color. Use a spoon or small spatula to bring the icing as close to the edges as you dare.

Then i went over them with a darker color of icing for faces. black would have been ideal but i don't know how to get black from red, blue, green and yellow. When i mixed them all, i got brown.

Than i gave them wounds with red icing!

To change it up, start with a white base and use dark colored icing to give them the toothy grin of a vampire. Great for kids to do as its not hard at all!

They look awesome!  Thankyou for sharing how to do this.  I love how they are zombies.  If I ate them with one (or more) of my friends, we would probably have a zombie fight before we ate them  Grin.  Yum.
