Christmas Cookie Set

December 11, 2019 in cookies - 1 Comment - 2 min read

IMG_6656Merry Christmas friends!

So I bought some new cutters a few weeks back that I was really excited to try.  Some in this set are tried and true cutters, like the mittens, snowflakes, and candy.  I seem to make those snowflakes every year, ha!

I used my KopyKake to help with the lettering of Merry Christmas, which was hard enough trying to trace, so I can’t imagine what it would have looked like without it. Trying to get the thick lines proved more challenging than I thought, so I will definitely need to practice more.  But they were still fun to make.

I also used the KopyKake to help with the heart Christmas tree.  Originally I wasn’t going to outline the heart again once it dried, but on some of the trees the green ran too close to the white heart and made it look a bit wonky.  I think next time I will try to raise it up a bit more before outlining and flooding the trees.

The more modern trees were so much fun and so simple to make.  On some of then I added disco dust, so they certainly added a bit of shine!

I also added a bit of sugar pearls to the trees, but I think I like them best without.  The color on these trees is one of my new favorite.

Out of the whole set, the holly was my favorite to make.  When I iced the first cookie, my berries all blended together, so when I realized that I made only two and let dry before adding the third.  (My early Christmas present was a dehydrator so I could get the base layer dry in 20 minutes versus two hours.  Why didn’t I know about this sooner?!?!)

The green colors on these cookies are from the same shade, just one tinted lighter.  And that vibrant red!  Love.

If you’d like to make a set like this, here is what I used:

Americolor gel–colors cypress, brown, red red, peacock, and white.

Holly cutter is from Kaleidacuts.

Merry Christmas cutter is from SheyB.

The heart Christmas tree is from SweetLeigh.

The candy, square tree, and mittens I think are Ann Clark cutters, but I bought them a while ago and don’t remember.
