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!

    Alessandra: Because I used a lot of icing of all tips of the stars im not sure that you could take them off one by one. To do that each star should have been iced and dried before assembling with a big dot of icing in the middel. Again im not sure that you would get the same look like this one I did.

    Andrea Saunders: I used wilton star tip no. 32

    Emma: Soft royal icing is simply just regular RI thinned with drops of water to soft consistency.

    Neni: I have used the Christmas tree cookie set from wilton 10 nesting star cutters. Click on the “wilton” in the post.
