When it comes to being special-
you are way up there!
I loved this fabulous card that I found at my local grocery shop and I was waiting for the right moment to use it, who new it was going to be in cookie form.
The Cookie Cutter Company is releasing a new Snow Globe cookie cutter and I am really excited to show you how to make a totally "outside the box Snow Globe cookie" with a Valentine's Day theme.
To make this cookie you will need the following supplies:
.Snow Globe cookie cutter
.Round cookie cutter
.Black food coloring marker
.White royal icing ( stiff for outlining and thin for flooding the snow globe cookie)
.Red,pink and green stiff consistency royal icing
.Tip #1 and 2
.Grass tip #233
.Piping bags and couplers
.Squeeze bottle ( for the white icing)
Prepare and bake your favorite sugar cookie recipe
-Draw the mouse and the balloons (hearts) with the black food marker. ( or draw any other design that can make your snow globe cookie unique)
Don't be scare of your drawing, it is just a cookie, if you don't like what you drew,just design something else,icing can cover any mistake.
- Fill the hearts with red and pink icing alternating the red and pink colors and allowing drying time in between filling to avoid any bleeding.
-Using the black food marker trace the balloon's strings.
Making the base for the Snow Glove
(Before baking the round cookie, using a small knife cut a square shape in the middle of the cookie making sure its big enough to fit both snow globe cookies inside)
-Place the round cookie on a piece of parchment paper and fill with white icing
-Pipe some white icing in the back of one cookie and immediately attach the other cookie
-Place the cookies ( now one cookie) inside the base (round cookie) and let it dry for a couple of hours. If you feel that your cookie is a little unstable, carefully hold your cookie for a few minutes until the icing starts to set.
-Hold the decorating bag 90° straight up and pipe the "beads" around the globe. I also pipe some dot flowers on the base of the Snow Globe.
-Then pipe the red beads, dots details and the grass on the base of the cookie
And if you want to get a little fancy...
Sprinkle your cookie with snow!
