It is official people... Christmas is around the corner and I am on holiday baking mode. Of course, I do not know where I am getting the time to bake or decorate, my poor little baby has been sick with a cold for the past few weeks and it is totally heart breaking seeing her so miserable with her stuffy nose.At 7 weeks, medicine is out of question, so hopefully soon she can get over it.
Well, let's get into cookies...another tutorial for The Cookie Cutter Company,
I love making light bulb cookies, they are big and you can play with colors as much as you want. For these cookies I wanted to make something a little bit different using purple and green colors as base. I also added some details to make the cookies pop and look extra cute.
To make these Bulb cookie designs you will need
- Christmas green,light green, purple, lavender,red,white and black royal icing ( stiff for pipping and thin for flooding the cookies)
- Pastry bags, couplers and tips #1,#2 and #10 round tip
- Silver Dragees
- Food Writers
- Food Silver Glaze ( you can find it at most craft stores or online)
- Squeeze bottles
- Christmas Light Bulb Cookie Cutter
- Pearl Luster dust ( optional)
- Fondant Holly leaves
Using tip #10 cut the hole in the center of the bulb "head" and then bake the cookies
Making the Snow Flake Lavender cookie
When your cookie is completely dry, using white royal icing and a piping bag with tip #1 draw the snow flakes.You can make them in diferent sizes to add dimention to the cookie.
Making the Lavander and Purple cookies with petals
This is an easy cookie design and you do not need a template for it. Just handdraw the petals adding as many petals as you want.
Start outlining and flooding the cookies
Let the cookies dry overnight
When the cookies are completely dry,cover the bulb with a paper towel.
Now, hold the can of pearl luster spray a little away from the cookie and give them a light mist.
It dries very quicky, but I would reccomend you to let the cookies untouch for a few minutes.
Making the Snowman Cookie
With stiff white royal icing and tip #10 make body and head of the snowman
Attach Holly leaves and sixles with a dab of royal icing
Chritsmas tree and snow cookie
Outline and flood the tree and the "snow", add red "lights" with red royal icing using tip #1
Attach Holly leaves and "berries"
And this last cookie looks just perfect with the Holly leaves and little "berries"
Are you ready for your holiday baking and cookie decorating?
Have a great weekend!
