There are several things I love about this time of year and one of my favorites is red birds in the snow. I have always thought of snow as something magical. When I see that gorgeous red bird with all the white snow surrounding it I feel like I have been given a gift. Since I feel like I have been given a gift I thought I would make a few red bird cookies as gifts this holiday season.
- Begin by outlining the bird and wing with the red icing and let it dry for a few minutes.
- Then flood with the red icing but, be careful around the wing outline.
- While the red is wet, add the black sugar pearl eye.
- Let this dry overnight.
- I forgot to take a picture of the yellow beak but, you know what to do
I want to keep things simple this holiday season. These birds are cute and I love how fast and simple they are. I am definitely giving them as gifts. We are supposed to share the magic this season right?
