Christmas Cookies - 2015

As usual I had more design ideas for Christmas cookies than I had time to complete. So I was happy to at least be able to finish and photograph a few new ones.



This hand numbing and cross-eye inducing mountain contains over 500 decorated mini cookies. I've done these before, only not nearly as many.
These were added to chocolate dipped pretzels, spoons, biscotti, and Oreos along with toffee, peanut brittle and spritz.



White on white snowflakes with silver indentations.
The center snowflakes are molded fondant.



Set of edible top hats.



Black edible 3-D top hat cookie filled with mini snowflake cookies.
The snowflakes on the hat are punched out of a white icing sheet and detailed with icing.



Red edible 3-D top hat cookie filled with small chocolate dipped pretzel rods.
The band is fondant and the buckle was made with silver dragees.



White edible 3-D top hat cookie filled with decorated Christmas mini cookies.
The hat band is made of fondant and decorated with icing leaves and red Sixlets candy.



Elf cookie place-card and 3-D cookie mug filled with mint chocolate candies and candy canes.
The mug was suppose to be another hat, but the brim broke so I added a candy cane handle and molded fondant trim.
The elf's legs are candy necklace beads on bamboo skewers.

This elf''s legs are candy necklace beads strung on licorice laces.
In hindsight I should have pick a different color for the shoes.

♥ Happy Decorating ♥

    1. All is well here. How sweet of you to check up on me. I've been busy fixing up 2 houses to sell, and my cookie stuff has been packed for over a year. We will be moving again to our permanent location hopefully by this summer. Then I can breathe cookie fumes rather than paint fumes. Have fun with your new cookie cutters and thank you for your sweet comments. I can't wait to get back to designing and blogging again.
