I love the tradition of making your own Christmas cookies and bring to as hostess gifts. With a little imagination, some practice and the right supplies, you could arrive with the best decorated cookies this Christmas. I visited The Decorated Cookie blog in search of tutorials and inspirations. What I found was several Wow! factors on the blog of Meaghan Mountford.
Melting Snowman cookies
Look at her Melting Snowman cookies. Meaghan even depicted emotions when she drew the snowman’s faces. I love the various ways she decorated them.
If you are new to cookie decoration, you may wish to read Meaghan’s tutorial on how to write on food. Her preferred tools are edible markers, which are different from candy markers. The ones she uses the most are the Americolor Gourmet Writers. They deliver a fine line, which is what you would need most of the time. The FoodWriter collection by Wilton is a good option to write bold characters or to draw thicker lines.
Awesome, Yet Simple Christmas Cookies
