You can click on the links above OR you can check out the 12 Days Playlist on our YouTube Channel! We add each new video when they are released!

Today's video is for my mom. She loves this cookies! They crack her up!

 

I made these last year too. Here's a little more cookie inspiration.

And for today's video I picked my favorites designs. 

Here's the video:

I am using Royal Icing to create my cookie designs. Check out our tutorials on how to make and use Royal Icing! And you'll also enjoy this blog post with rolling and baking tips! Both links include our recipes!

Drying time is very important with cookie decorating. The video is a time lapse and doesn't show the inactive time. But I allow the icing to dry 6 hours before stenciling on the lime green sweater. I also let a few hours pass before adding the details. I like to use a fan to help speed up the process.

I am using the sweater cookie cutter to create this design. Here's a link to all the cutters used in our 12 Days of Cookie Videos series.

 

Isn't that Fair Isle Sweater stencil just so cool?? I also used it on Day 8 with the Sugar Mitten.

We have dozens of stencils available in our online shop and that is one of them!

 

I think the Snowflakes and Stripes would also be really cookie on the sweater or mitten. I also think the Build A Rudolf, the Christmas quad, or the Christmas 4 design would be perfect for the sweaters! Check them all out here 

 

Two more days to come!!! I can't wait for these last two videos!
