I'm fortunate to be a member of a group in Facebook with all the other Cookier in Australia & NZ. So one of the ladies in the group organized a "Kris Kringle Secret Santa" between all of us cookie decorators.
It was pretty intimidating to create Christmas cookies for someone who has been at this a lot longer than i have, but it was also exciting at the same time coz i will be receiving cookies from one of them too, yay! So looking forward to receive mine :)
My secret Santa recipient has received hers yesterday, I've got the talented Laura from Cookie B Mine, so that means i can post my cookies here :) This is part of the set I made for her. I decided to make mocha flavoured cookies instead of the usual sugar cookies, i really hope she likes them! *fingers crossed*
I didn't have an actual Santa cookie cutter so i searched online for an alternative and found a tutorial in Haniela's site to use an ice cream cone cutter to make a Santa. So that's what i did here :)
We also use a full body snowman cutter to make a snowman head with a Christmas scarf. This was a tutorial from Sugar Belle :)
Because all the tutorials have been done by others, we didn't take any tutorial photos for any of these cookies. My absolute favorite was actually the red plaque in the middle with the writing "Joyeux Noel". I didn't own a projector so i had to use baking paper to trace the writing on to the cookies :)
Here are a closer look at some of the Santa & Snowman cookies :)
Christmas Trees and elf in a sack :)
I really hope Laura likes them and also like the mocha flavour of these cookies ;-)
Merry Christmas to Laura & her family!
