With Christmas just a few weeks away, it is the time of the year where cookies make their way to teachers, friends, coworkers and all the people that we care about.
A sweet treat is always welcome.
For this month’s tutorial gingerbread boys and girls seems so fitting, their happy little faces and confetti details make them so festive.
Put them in a Holiday box or wrap them in a cello bag with ribbon and you will have the perfect sweet gift to brighten anyone’s day.
Let’s gather supplies and decorate these cookies.
You will need the following:
Gingerbread Girl Cookie
Outline and fill with white icing the top detail of the dress
Outline and fill the dress with green icing
Fill the arms, feet and head with warm brown color icing
Using a squeeze bottle and gold color flood consistency icing, pipe small dots around the head, arms and feet.
Let the cookie dry completely overnight.
Once the cookie is dry, use the black food writer and draw a mouth and two dots for the eyes.
Attach a small confetti for the nose and 2 medium size confetti candy to detail the mouth.
Attach the sugar bow with a dot of icing
Pipe a few red hearts on the dress and you are set
These gingerbread girl cookies are ready to party
Outline and flood the cookies with brown icing

Set the cookies aside to dry completely
Draw the mouth and eyes and attach the confetti to the sides of the mouth

Now you have a fun set of Gingerbread cookies! They are simple, cute and easy to decorate. Just what you need in this busy season.
