How to make a Christmas cookie ornament

Christmas cookie ornament

Christmas is very close now and here are the third Christmas special tutorial. A beautiful glittering Christmas cookie ornament to decorate your tree. It is so easy and quick to make because you only use three things for decoration: rolled fondant icing, royal icing and edible glitter. You can of course make it in any color and the piping decoration could also be simple snowflakes, dots or whatever you like. If you dont have edible glitter and only have lustre dust then wait until the royal icing is dry before you carefully brush it with a soft brush. Edible lustre spray would also be great for this project.

This is what I use:
Round cookies (make the hole when they are still warm)
White rolled fondant icing
White royal icing with a tip 2 (remember to make a soft consistensy or the icing will “curl” when you pipe)
White edible glitter (I used white disco hologram from Edable Art)
Round cookie cutter (the same size for the cookies)
Small round cutter
Corn syrup & a brush
Rolling pin
Corn starch for dusting
Ribbon
A piece of parchment paper

Step 1:
Brush the cookie with corn syrup and set a side. Roll out the fondant and cut with the round cutter. Place the fondant circle on the cookie and smooth the edges with your fingers. Remember to careful mark where the hole is so that you know where to place the small cutter. Cut out with the small cutter for the ribbon.

Step 2:
Pipe with the royal icing on the cookie. While the royal icing is still wet. Place the cookie on the parchment paper and pour the glitter over the cookie. Take the cookie and shake all the excess glitter off. Set aside to dry. Take the parchment paper and pour back the excess glitter in the pot. Set aside to dry. Tie the ribbon and hang the cookie ornament on your tree.
