Major Learning Project – Week 9

The time has finally come – my last week of cookie decorating (for this class anyways). This week I decided to try and tie everything together and create a variety of Christmas cookies with the royal icing. I knew right away that I wanted to do a candy cane and a Christmas tree. I thought it would be fun to post a poll on Twitter and see what other design I should try! It was a close race for awhile, but the gingerbread people pulled ahead! I also ended up doing a snowman since the design I found was SOOO CUTE, as well as a Christmas present.

Thank you to the 11 people who voted!

Once that was all done, I began to outline and then flood all of the backgrounds of the cookies. I left that to dry for a few hours (I could have even left it for a day). Then, I began to add all of the finishing touches. I think that for the most part they turned out pretty nice. The snowmen were definitely my favourite! I got my inspiration for the cookies by simply searching “Christmas cookies decorated” and Christmas cookies with royal icing” on Pinterest.

Thank you to everyone who has been following along with this journey! I look forward to writing my final summary post next week. Stay tuned for a nice recap as well as some tips, tricks, and my favourite recipes!

  1. I totally voted for the snowman cookies on Twitter! I can see why most picked gingerbread men – they are adorable. I never have good luck getting really red icing, so I end up buying it. I am going to use your flooding technique when I decorate Xmas cookies this month, and I hope that I don’t have to go through too many trials…
    Thank you for all of this FUN! I loved it!

  2. I am definitely going to be using some of these designs as inspiration for when I make Christmas sugar cookies in a few weeks. I also look forward to reading your final summary of all of your tricks and the recipes I need to try!
