Project Instructions

  • 1
    Make gum paste snowflakes: Two days in advance of serving cookies, Use fondant roller to roll out gum paste 1/16" thick. Cut out snowflake shapes; use teardrop and diamond cutters to cut out designs. Let dry on cornstarch-dusted cake boards.
  • 2
    Bake cookies: One day in advance of serving cookies, bake and cool cookies following recipe instructions.

(If using hand mixer, use high speed.) Color flow icing "crusts" quickly, so keep bowl covered with a damp cloth while using.

    Ice cookies: Reserve one cup White color flow icing. Then use Color Right base colors and QuickCount color formulas to tint color flow icing in the following shade:
    Winter Green-Blue: 4 cups White Icing + 2 BR + 4 B
    Thin 3 cups of the Winter Green-Blue icing. Use tip 3 and the 1 cup of full strength tinted icing in a cut parchment bag to outline cookies. Let dry 15 minutes. Use thinned icing in a cut parchment bag to fill in cookies. Let dry overnight.
