Gingerbread Snowflake Wreath

Snowflake cookie wreath has been on my to do list for as long as I can remember. Over the years I have accumulated so many different snowflake cookie cutters I’m not sure why haven’t created one sooner. I think I have at least 30-40 cutters,  2 full bins of them. Browsing online I constantly find new ones I’d like to add my collection. In my mind you can never have enough snowflake cutters! Are you with me?!

So to make this happen I invited  my friend Amber of SweetAmbs to collaborate.  Amber chose beautiful colors : pink and cream and I picked the theme : Winter Wonderland.

Pink and Cream Winter Wonderland. Magical.

To make the wreath ring use a large plate and a knife or pastry wheel to cut it out and then use a small bowl for the center opening. Make sure you cut out on a parchment paper so you can easily lift it up and transfer it onto a baking sheet. Bake the wreath ring at 350F for 15-20 minutes.

Technique I used to decorate the wreath ring is nothing new. I’ve used a similar approach when making these Frosty Snowflake Cookies or frosty windows on Mini Gingerbread Bird House. Spread medium stiff royal icing on the ring and then with a toothpick make the pine needles. Let dry.

I used a variety of different cutter sizes. I also made few smaller cookies as fillers. They are great for filling the gaps between larger cookies, they work sort of like bridges.
