I love a snowman with a big head don’t you? I am not sure if I like them because I think they might tip over or that I imagine them walking like a bobble head. What ever it is, a big-headed snowman cookie is just the thing to make me smile today.

Big-Headed Snowman Cookies thebearfootbaker.comDid I forget to mention his big nose? I think that adds a little something to his personality. Or maybe the big nose is the reason for the big head. It is like the question of what came first, the chicken or the egg. We may never know. It doesn’t really matter though because they taste good even if they are a bobble big headed snowman cookie.

Then, paint the arms and mouth with the brown food gel. You can paint when the icing is wet or dry. If you paint the wet icing, it will be a bit darker than if you paint on dry icing, All you have to do is add a small amount of gel to a small amount of water and paint.
Let the cookie dry completely.
