Melted Snowman Cookie Tutorial. Part 4 - Decorating

At this point you've got your base ready to go and you can decorate as you please. You'll need some piping bags and size 1 or 2 tips. You can also use a zip top bag with a very small hole cut in the corner. Color your royal icing the colors of your choice and have fun.

Here are a few different ways we decorated.





Yep, that's a snowball in her hand. I got my hands on a bag of Kraft Micromallows and just love them! They are the size of mini marshmallows in hot chocolate mix. Perfect for mini snowballs. To make it easier on the kids, you can use Silver Dragees or mini chocolate chips for buttons.

Thank you so much for sharing!
These are great, I'm going to try these for my daughters holiday party at school.
Any tips on how to make the carrot without using fondant?

Stacey said...

Hi Jen,
The carrot is actually royal icing. I just piped it on. If the icing isn't too runny (set some aside that is a little more firm) and then build it up high.
