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