Homespun Christmas Tree Decorated Cookies (Tutorial)

This is one of my favorite Christmas cutters.
Several years ago, I designed this shape with some good cookie friends and the cutters were made in mass quantity. But eventually, they sold out of the cutter and it was hard to place another order. Thankfully, my good friends at Creative Cookier agreed to offer this shape in their shop. You can find the "Homespun Christmas Tree" cutter HERE

Refer to the video and photos below to learn how the two homespun tree designs were made.

And there you have it......two fun homespun Christmas tree cookie designs.

Watercolors + Edible Clay Decorated Cookie Collection

After my first attempt at watercolor decorating, I knew I would have to experiment much more to start to get the hang of it.
For this set, I decided to try watercolors on both dried glaze and on my edible clay recipe.
In addition, I used lots of gold dust to add splashes of beauty to each cookie.
Progress is being made......but it is definitely a work in progress.

Fathers Day Casual Shirt Cookie (Tutorial)






Now that we've done a more dressy collared shirt cookie for Dad on Fathers Day,
let's make a casual shirt cookie with a pocket and buttons.


The cookie shape is simple........a large square. :)
Using additional cookie dough, cut out a collar and a pocket and
place them on top of the cookie before baking.
(I used the straight edge of the large square cutter to cut out these shapes.)


After the cookie is baked and cooled, flood the entire cookie in your-color-of-choice glaze.

Be careful not to use too much glaze around the edges of the collar/pocket causing it to pile up and take away from the contrast of the different cookie heights.

In this example cookie, a plaid pattern was added....
but feel free to leave the shirt plain or add your own pattern.


Allow the cookie to dry for at least 30 minutes.
Outline the color and pocket in the same color glaze.


To add stitches, allow the glaze to dry for a couple of hours.
Poke evenly space holes along the edges with a cake tester or other round tool.
Then pipe stitches across ever two holes as shown below.
(Please excuse the blurry photo.)


While the cookie is drying overnight, mold 2-3 small buttons in a silicone mold using edible clay.

Place the buttons on the side of the shirt (under the collar) and add some glaze stitches on the buttons.

Quilted Christmas Tree Cookies (Tutorial)





Hurray......
It is time for Christmas cookies!

We all anticipate this time of year for many months.
There's just something so wonderful about the spirit of Christmas.

This year I had the privilege of going to Europe and teaching other decorators
some of the CookieCrazie glaze icing techniques.
One of the projects was this cute little homespun quilted Christmas tree.
Now that I've taught the class, I thought I'd share a tutorial here too.


The cookie shape is created with this homespun Christmas tree cutter.

Using brown 10-second glaze, outline/flood the trunk of the quilted tree.
Pipe some black glaze lines while the trunk is still wet.


Give the trunk at least one hour to dry......and then add the middle section of the patchwork quilt.
Use a green glaze base, adding any pattern you'd like while it is still wet.


After at least 30 minutes dry time, add the top and bottom parts of the quilted tree.
Preferably, use a different shade of green for the base,
and again.....add any pattern you like while the glaze is still wet.


Allow the cookies to dry overnight.

make some red buttons to add as "ornaments" on the tree.

Here's the silicone molds used for the trees shown here:

If desired, pipe some stitches within the buttons.


Using a food color marker, add stitches around the edges of the tree.
