Decorated Cookies, Christmas 2011

These last four days I been baking and decorating cookies. Although I love making cakes, I must say that I also like decorating cookies very much. I wish had had more time to continually bake and decorated cookies. If you have yet not baked cookies, you still are in time. Gingerbread men are easy to decorate and dry the same day. Today I share photos of the different styles of cookies I decorated. Some are inspired from the web.

The famous, favorites and TRUE classic are the gingerbread man. Thanks to my new gingerbread men cookie cutters in large size. The last two years I’ve been using a mini cutter. These are easy to decorate. All you need is a decorating bag with tip # 1 or # 2. What I like most about them is the smell of the spiced gingerbread cookies.

The snowman faces CUTE! Hats are decorated with disco dust in, Rainbow color. See how to decorate with disco dust: Here.

The garlands are my favorites, I will be using them in our gingerbread house. See step by step how to do a gingerbread house: Here.

I could not leave out the Christmas trees, another holiday favorite. Since this is a new cookie cutter, I look for a simple decorating style. Instead of a star, I made a poinsettia flower with royal icing.

Finally, the three angel cookies, one for each of my daughters. This is also a new cutter that I need to get used to. For the wings: I covered them with icing in gold color, and sprinkled with, holo-gram gold disco dust. This color is thicker than the rainbow dust therefore it covers much more. Note: use only a very small amount.

The recipes to make decorated cookies can be found in the right hand side of this blog or in the recipes index. This is all for right now. Remember to share your creations on our facebook page.

I dedicate this post to all my nieces and nephews. Big hugs to all,  Tia Cake  :)

Always kiss your children goodnight even if they're already asleep :)
