How to make a Christmas wreath cookie

This is the first of four special Christmas tutorials for you this Christmas :-) Today it’s a Christmas wreath cookie decorated with royal icing. You can use your favourite gingerbread or sugar cookie dough for the wreath. Remember to start colouring your icing 1-2 days in advance. That way the colour will have time to “mature” and it can save you from adding too much colour in the end.

This is what I use:
Round cookies with holes
Red royal icing (soft consistency)
Green royal icing (soft consistency)
Round tip 2 or 3 for the red icing
Leaf tip medium size for the green icing

Step 1:
Pipe the green royal icing leaves on the cookie. Starting from the inside of the cookie working your way around the wreath. Set aside to dry.

Step 2:
Pipe small red berries randomly on the wreath and set aside to dry completly.

Step 3:
Voila! A nice Christmas wreath cookie for you to enjoy.

    Becky: He he… that is not my counter top its my non stick board ;-) I had just changed the white balance on the camera. For the red and green splotches I was just hidding them. I cant go near gel paste without having it all over my hands. Glad that you liked the wreaths.

    Eunice: Snowflake cookies is so gorgeous. I wish the boxed set where you can cut out details in the cookie before its baked.

    Cool! I’ll have to give this a try.

    Also, any tips on making the traditional sugar cookies with the pretty pictures on? I want to have a go at that ‘filling’ technique that looks so pretty.
