Well technically its white & blue Christmas but mainly its white so lets stick with that lol :) We wanted to do a Christmas set with a non traditional Christmas colours, and we also wanted to make the cookies with some bling on them so this is what we came up with :)
The Christmas tree was just an experiment with different kind of swirly things and metallic sugar pearls, so i didn't take any tutorial photos of them, but i did take some step by step photos of the snowflakes to share here.
Start of with a base colour (either white or blue or any colour preference you want), fill the cookie with white or blue flood icing. Let it dry for a few hours.
Then the first step is pipe a line from one end of the snowflake tips to the other end using a stiff consistency icing - see picture below.
For these snowflakes we decided to start from the middle. Pipe a small line in between the connecting lines and put a small metallic sugar pearl on each end - see picture below for a clearer visual.
Then continue to do the swirls on each snowflake tips and put a tiny dot on each side - as pictured below
The lastly, you can either leave the snowflake as it is or you can add some more details on, like some dots in between each lines or you can leave the snowflake as it is for a simpler design. Here are the different variations we have made with both blue on white and white on blue :)
Here are the three different trees and 'Peace & Joy' cookies :)
Close up of the 'peace' cookie because we dusted it with a light pearl dust and a sprinkle of sparkly dust :)
It doesn't show well in photos but it sure looks pretty when you see it up close ;-)
Only a couple more sleeps til Santa, hope everyone is winding down and getting ready to celebrate
and be merry! :)
