Beautiful Winter Decorated Cookies

Winter Wonderland Cookies Decorating Instructions –

Start with a batch of my Perfect Sugar Cookies.

For this set you’ll need some round cookies (large and mini), some snowflakes and a simple tree (I used a mini tree cutter from Ecrandal, but I do not see it on their site currently).

Prepare a batch of Royal Icing. <—–  Edited to add, I keep getting questions asking for the icing recipe… it’s linked where it says “Royal Icing”

For this set, I made…

Pale blue icing with a #2 tip, medium/flood consistency

Lime green icing with a #2 tip, medium/flood consistency

Medium-dark green icing with a #2 tip, medium/flood consistency

White icing with a #1.5 tip, piping consistency

White icing with a #2 tip, medium/flood consistency

You’ll also need white non-pareils sprinkles and white and/or light blue snowflake sprinkles (optional)

I’m trying something new and sharing the decorating process with a video, in place of step-by-step photos.

I’d love your feedback as to which you prefer (photos or video).  Please don’t say “both”… I’m only human!  =)

Enjoy this short video for the step-by-step decorating tutorial…

A few additional decorating notes…

For the large round cookies (the tree scene), the trees should be added immediately after the cookie has been “flooded” with the white and blue icing.

For the mini trees, (pictured in this post, but not show in the video) the same technique (called “wet-on-wet”) should be used.

For the snowflakes, outline and flood the cookies, then allow to dry (1-4 hours) before adding the white details.

  1. Which greens did you use for the trees? These cookies are BEAUTIFUL!!

  2. These cookies are so beautiful and I loved watching your video. Can’t wait to try to make these myself – wish me luck!!

  3. Thanks for the feedback on consistency.  It’s taking me a lot of do-overs to get it right.  I like your comparison to toothpaste (piping) and shampoo (flooding.)  Might use those for practice!
