1Make 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.
2Bake cookies: One day in advance of serving cookies, bake and cool cookies following recipe instructions.
3Make color flow icing: With electric mixer, using grease-free utensils, blend 12 cups sifted confectioners sugar, 6 tablespoons Color Flow Mix and 3/4 cup + 3 tablespoons water on low speed for 5 minutes. (If using hand mixer, use high speed.) Color flow icing "crusts" quickly, so keep bowl covered with a damp cloth while using.
4Ice 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.
5Decorate cookies: Prepare decorating bags with tip 2, tip 3 and no tip; fill with full-strength White icing. Cut small tip cut off bag with no tip. Pipe straight lines, icing dots and curved lines. Attach gum paste snowflakes to cookies with dots of icing. Let dry 4-5 hours.
Makes about 36 cookies.
