In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix together 4 pounds Dawn Crème Cake Mix, 1 pound softened unsalted butter, 0.8oz vanilla extract, 1.8oz whole eggs, and 1.8oz whole milk. Mix until well combined and mixture looks like cookie dough. Pat into a flat circle, wrap with plastic wrap, and place in cooler until completely chilled.
Roll to ¼ inch thick, punch into circles, donut shapes, and donut with a bite taken out. Bake at 350F until completely set and just starting to color around the edges. Let cool completely.
Mix royal icing- make white, grey, red, and black and decorate the cookies using pipe/fill techniques.
