Christmas Royal Icing Transfers

Have you ever seen a cookies that made you fall head over heels for it? Well, I might be weird and the only one that went crazy for a cookie and that’s OK. When Sweet Sugar Belle posted these cookies I knew I wanted to make them someday. I thought about them for weeks. I have yet to make them but, I did make Christmas royal icing transfers so we can make them together.

Callye is one of the best and the most creative cookiers I have ever seen and these cookies prove it.

Christmas-Royal-Icing-Transfers-with-thebearfootbaker.com_As you can see my snowmen are different then Callye’s. I did that on purpose! I want you to decorate them the way you want. Add a scarf, hat or ear muffs or leave him bald. It is like building a snowman outside, make it any way you want.

  • To make the body, pipe a circle for the head and add 2 black nonpareils for the eyes and an orange one for the nose with food safe tweesers. Let it dry for a few minutes.
  • Next pipe the body and add 2 chocolate jimmies for the arms and add 2 more black nonpareils for the buttons. Let it dry for a few minutes.
  • Then, pipe the bottom. Let it dry overnight and then add a scarf or other decorations.
  • Let it dry completely.


  • For the tress, outline and flood with the green icing. While the green icing is wet, add a chocolate jimmie for the tree trunk and let it dry completely.
  • Add colored stpinkles to look like lights or add white icing for snow when it is dry.
  • Let it dry completely.
