This is my first Christmas season as a cookie decorator! There are so many options and directions to go in when it comes to Christmas cookies. It took me a while to figure out what I wanted to do (since doing everything I liked and wanted would have impossible-there's always next year!).
When it comes to designing cookies, I have a couple different methods. I'm constantly reading other cookie decorator blogs and pinning their cookies, so some ideas come from them. Most of the time though, I try to google things or switch their things up to be original. however, with Christmas cookies, as I looked through past cookie decorators, not only had many ideas already been done, but I loved them! I couldn't help but imitate some of my favorites. I will put links up to show you where the idea came from when applicable.
These went out as Christmas gifts in several different directions-some were mailed and some were packaged in tins or boxes and given away. I didn't think to take any pictures though.
Beware, there are lots of pictures in this one.
|I was actually given this snowflake cookie cutter as a gift from my awesome step sister-in-law just 2 days before I used it for these cookies!|
|Do these look familiar? yes, they are the same style as the last Christmas trees I did. I loved how they looked so much that I stuck with them. The idea for these came from Cookie Crazie.|
|The idea for these fun present cookies came from Ali Bee's Bake Shop.|
|These cookies were a take off of LilaLoa's snowflakes here.|
|The idea for these cute little snowglobes originated with Pemberly bake shop.|
