Snow Globe Cookies
I’ve been wanting to make these snow globe cookies for quite some time and there’s no time like the present. Presents and Christmas go hand in hand so it seemed like the right time to me because they’re easy to make and super fun!
I first saw a version of these cookies made by Dani Fiori of Sweet Dani B. I bought several bottles and discovered I like piping bags better. Who knew.
Anyway, let’s make some snow globe cookies.
Supplies for Snow Globe Cookies:
Snow Globe Cookie Cutter (here and here)
Royal Icing Gingerbread and Reindeer Transfers (free patterns 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 you can find the tutorial and free pattern by clicking here.
The deer stencil I used has been discontinued. Look around and see if you can find a cute stencil that’ll work.
Begin by making some snow globe cookies. The small snow globes can be found at Sweet Art Factory and The Cookie Cutter Company and I hand cut the large snow globe. If you want more information on how to hand-cut cookies, click here. All you have to do is fold a piece of paper half and cut your pattern and use it as a pattern.
Outline and flood the base of the cookies with the red icing. You can use any size round decorating 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.
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 at 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 set of woodland cookies. As a matter of fact, I am going to go make some woodland globes or maybe some I love NY globes now!

Very Pretty. The links for “Royal Icing Gingerbread and Reindeer Transfers (free patterens and tutorial found here)” don’t seem to be working.
I would love to try these, thanks for a beautiful tutorial
Thank you Judy. I forgot to add the link but it is fixed now. Thank you for letting me know! 😉
Ahh, those deer are so sweet and they look adorable in the snow globes, as do the gingerbread men.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!
I haven’t had a chance to bake my cookies this year! 🙁
Great idea! Love your gingerbread men!!!
what dye do you use for these vibrant colors (red)??? thanx really cute!
I use different soft paste food gel colors like AmeriColor Tulip Red (usually with a very small drop of brown), Wilton No-Taste Red and lately, I’ve been using Artisan Accents. I hope this helps! Let me know if you need anything else. 🙂
