Icy Snowflake Cookies



Nature creates the most beautiful art.

That's me, under the frozen waterfall.


To make Icy Snowflake Cookies you need:
Baked cookies(Collection of cut out cookie recipes), you can use any shapes you like, rounds,trees and less complex shapes are really great to use when having kids decorate cookies with this technique.
Toothpick
Painter's brush
Crumbled piece of  plastic food wrap
  • Outline cookie with white royal icing.
  • Using a thin royal icing(about 5 second icing) apply a very thin layer of icing, distributing icing with a brush onto the cookie surface. Let dry completely. 
  • Reason I used  a very thin icing for the 1st coat is because  I wanted  to avoid   having 2 thick layers of icing on the cookies.
  • Using a flood(10 to 15 second icing) icing and a crumbled piece of plastic wrap, apply white icing directly onto the blue layer. Dabbing away, almost as if you were faux painting the wall.
  • Once you covered the whole cookies, take a toothpick and  draw snowflake like lines, stars or such. You will need to wipe the toothpick few times while drawing. Once you made enough stars to cover the whole cookies, you can let the icing dry completely.
  • Once icing has dried, spray the cookies with pearl spray for added shimmer.

Using outline royal icing consistency, outline with white  and flood the cookie with a thin blue icing


Spread  and push the icing into the hard to reach areas  with  a small brush








Pipe little bit of flood consistency icing onto the cookie


Using crumbled piece of plastic wrap apply "Faux finish" onto the cookie, dabbing all over the blue layer






Using a toothpick draw stars, snowflakes into the wet white icing


Wipe the toothpick as needed

I used a similar technique to create   a frosty window effect on my Gingerbread Bird House
