Christmas cut out cookies!

Decorating sugar cookies is definitely my new favorite hobby. For recipes and instructions, see my cookie bouquet post. I'm going to plan on getting an earlier start next year so I have time to make more designs. Here are my Christmas trees - my first few were kind of ugly until I got a little better at the swirls:

And my snowflakes! I'm really proud of these. I outlined them and flooded with blue icing then let them dry. The next morning I piped the design on in white, and dipped the cooking into sanding sugar while the icing was still wet. Perfectly sparkley!
