Everybody loves decorated Christmas cookies, no matter what age you are. So, make the most popular cookies this Christmas with this Christmas cookie decorating fondant tutorial. Make 3D Christmas trees, bells, stockings and snowmen. And, you will be surprised just how simple and easy these are to make.
The moment I start listening to Christmas music I start thinking of Christmas goodies. Of course, kids also get excited! So, I wanted to make a tutorial for you and I thought how about some Christmas cookie decorating, with fondant of course. Since, you know I don't have the patience for Royal Icing cookies. Although, I love watching the pros in action. But, unless I have an order I don't go the Royal Icing route.
Below, you can see the various cookies that I made. In fact, I tried to keep it simple and easy. And, I hope you enjoy this tutorial.
Sugar cookie recipe
First, by now, I hope you already know and have used my Vanilla Sugar Cookie Recipe and Chocolate Sugar Cookie Recipes. In fact, I use these all the time. Since, they are delicate but also very delicious. I hate tough cookies. And, there is no point in having pretty cookies if you can't bite into them.
My sugar cookies have the perfect balance of sweet and crumbly texture, so they melt in your mouth. And, if you need eggless sugar cookies you can also use my recipes Eggless Vanilla Sugar Cookies and Eggless Chocolate Sugar Cookies.
Also, I put some on a cookie pop stick. Kids love those. And, they are easy to make and perfect to distribute to kids at the party.
So here are my Christmas trees
I have shown you three different cookies here. The simple embossed mat, the marbled and the textured, as well as the 3D ones in white and green. And, you can see that they are simple and really easy to make. In fact, you don't have to be a professional cake decorator to make simple cookies like this.
These are my Christmas bells
I have stenciled these - and I show you how I stencil each one and add more details. For example, two-tone shading as well as bronze detail defining.
The Christmas stockings sugar cookies
For these, I have used the kit wear or sweater embossed mat, and an embossed mat, and a fondant embossed mat. They do look impressive and may be difficult to make but honestly? Actually, the embossing does most of the work for you. And, if you see the video you will see they are SO SIMPLE and easy.
And finally, my Aadi's favorite - The snowman sugar cookies
Again, I used the sweater silicon mold for the hat but kept them simple. And, these are probably the easiest cookies in the whole batch.
