The holidays are HERE!! A time when adults can stop being so serious, and indulge childlike wonder and enjoyment of the world. That also means a time of unadulterated TREATS!
I was so excited when my good friend Amanda asked if I could make some cookie treats to cheer up another friend . She decided on snowflakes!
I was thrilled to try out my new copper snowflake cookie cutter I got while visiting the Culinary Institute last month and I knew I would have no trouble decorating since Bridget gives such fabulous step-by-step instructions on how to decorate a snowflake cookie with Royal Icing. The one thing I did differently than Bridget……I used a #3 tip. I find that I can control the outlines and design much easier with the #3 since it’s a little larger than the #2.
Amanda thought blue and white would be a nice touch rather than the traditional all white snowflake, and I just love how the color combination turned out! I used pearl dust instead of sanding sugar, and I wasn’t thrilled with it…..it hardly shows up. So when I do snow flakes again, I’ll use sanding sugar for sure, because Bridget says too! haha
should cover 2-3 dozen 3.5 inch cookies in 2 colors

A few days after I made these cookies I found another use for the left over Royal Icing!
I almost always have left over icing, and I usually put it in an air tight container and stick it in the fridge, and throw it out a week later because I don’t use it! lol Sometimes I wonder why I bother……….until this past weekend.
We bought clay.
We sat and starred at the clay……….and at the book/picture………..at the clay……….at the book.
Then Allison said, the teacher said we can use cake!
So we brainstormed, and we did a little online searching…………and we came up with THIS!
We made a small cake and 12 cupcakes.
We used 3 cupcakes and chocolate frosting to make a giant cake ball, then covered it in white candy melts with a little purple food gel for the nucleus.
