Gingerbread cookie Christmas tree

I finally had some time to take a photo of my gingerbread cookie Christmas tree. 21 cookie stars decorated with lots of soft green royal icing, light golden sugar dragees and a gold painted star on top.

I think that I will make a whole forest of cookie trees in different sizes next year. I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas and I do know that I did write about a gingerbread house tutorial in a previous post but I ran out of time. Im so sorry!

Happy Caking!

    Adorable! I love the soft green color on the icing. I was also thinking of doing a forest of Christmas trees next year, because I am sure one won’t be enough for my family and friends! I am confident you had a Merry Christmas.

    Wish you a Happy and blessed New Years!
