Happy Little Snowman Royal Icing Transfers
Have you ever lived in a place where the weather has a mind of its own? If not, you need to visit East Tennessee. Let me paint a little picture for you. It’s winter and last week we had a day where the temperature was 77 degrees. Two days later we had eight inches of snow that knocked our power out for several days. As I sat in the living room (recovering from Covid, yep, Alan and I both were recovering from Covid when the power went out) playing Alan one million games of Gin Rummy, I was thinking about work. I love my job and all I wanted to do was play with royal icing, but I didn’t have power or any royal icing on hand. All I could do was daydream about happy little snowman royal icing transfers.
As soon as the power came back on I scrubbed the house, washed all the sheets, blankets, and towels, bleached as many surfaces as I could to kill all the possible Covid things, and then I some snowmen. I was so happy. It was the perfect way to end ten days of quarantine and days without power.

Let’s make a snowman!
The same rules apply as I’ve always recommended when we make royal icing transfers.
- Print your pattern.
- Cover it with a cello bag and tape it in place.
- Pipe your white royal icing.
- Let it dry completely.
- Add the details.
The scarves were piped with outline consistency royal icing and a tipless piping bag. The gree was piped when I cut a ‘v’ in the end of the bag as if I were going to pipe some leaves. It was fun and I liked the way it turned out.
I didn’t take a lot of photos of these guys. If you watch the video you will see how to make them. So print off the patterns and have fun making these little guys!
