To make adorable Gingerbread Table Setting Cookies you need:
Remember to have a head count of women and men attending your Christmas dinner and make amounts of gingerbread people cookies accordingly. Actually bake more as you’ll probably eat few before your guests arrive.
Flood the leaf cookies with green royal icing, using wet on wet technique pipe white veins.Let dry.
Once dry, add red berries. Let dry again.
Paint holly lightly with gold luster dust or you can also use Wilton Gold Color Mist(similar to what I did here)
Flood gingerbread people cookies with white or light ivory icing. Let dry.
Using an Extra Fine Tip Food Writer write names on the cookies, according to you table setting arrangement.
Pipe details on gingerbread people, like eyes, mouth, swirls, buttons. Once dry, paint with luster dust.
Using stiff to medium consistency royal icing glue gingerbread people onto a holly leaf base.Using crumbled plastic wrap to support them, until icing had dried and cookies can stand on its own without support.
Store cookies in a large container until you are ready to use them for your table setting.
