A perfect book for decorating Christmas cookies using buttercream icing and royal icing. First, learn about the differences between the two icings: Which is best for kids? Which has the best sweetness and texture? Can decorated cookies be placed in the freezer? Next, author Autumn Carpenter's favourite cookie recipe is included with instructions on rolling. Once the cookies are baked, it's decorating time.
The full-colour booklet gives detailed instructions on working with royal icing; including icing consistency, basic flooding, troubleshooting, wet-on-wet techniques, dimension, adding decorative sugars and more. The next chapter moves onto buttercream. Learn about creating textures with buttercream using popular tips. See step-by-step directions using both icings. Shapes include Christmas trees, Santa face, poinsettias, snow globe, mittens, winter hat, stocking, wreaths, gingerbread boys, snowman, mistletoe, reindeer race, and more!
