Snow Globe Cookies
I have been wanting to make these snow globe cookies for quite some time and I thought there is no time like the present. Well, presents and Christmas go hand in hand so it seemed like the right time to me. They are easy to make and super fun!I first saw a version of these cookies cookies made by Dani Fiori of Sweet Dani B. She is the one who got me hooked on making cookies by showing how to make them using those fun little decorating bottles. I bought several bottles and discovered I like piping bags better. Who knew.
Anyway, lets make some snow globe cookies.
Supplies for Snow Globe Cookies:
Royal Icing Gingerbread and Reindeer Transfers (free patterens and tutorial found here)
Before you begin making these cookies, you need to make some royal icing transfers or you can buy some at local craft stores. If you want to make the gingerbread men and the deer, you can find the tutorial and free pattern by clicking here.
Begin by making some snow globe cookies. The small snow globes can be found at Sweet Art Factory and The Cookie Cutter Company. I hand cut the large snow globe. If you want more information on how to hand cut cookies, click here. You can fold a piece of paper half and cut your pattern.
Outline and flood the base of the cookies with the red icing. You can use any size round tip that you want. I used a #2 decorating tip.
Next, outline and flood the sky part of the snow globe with the blue icing. While it is wet, add the deer or the gingerbread men. Add a few white nonpareils to look like snow. If you want to add a heart, add it while the icing is wet.
Let the icing dry overnight before adding the next color so it will reduce the risk of the colors bleeding together.
Aren’t they cute?
Next, place the cookie in a bowl or a coffee filter and outline and flood the snow area with the white icing.
Then, while the icing is wet, sprinkle them with the white nonpareils and shake off the excess.
Add the icing to the arms and legs of the gingerbread men.
Now sit back and look what a great job you did. By using royal icing transfers, this project is really easy. You don’t have to make them at Christmas only. The deer would be a great addition to a woodland set. As a matter of fact, I am going to go make some woodland globes or maybe some I love NY globes now!
