How to Make BEAUTIFUL Snowflake Cookies

HELLO!!!  SweetSugarBelle here with another fun winter cookie for you to try =) 

I don't know about everyone else, but I just LOVE snowflake cookies!  They are GORGEOUS, and simple...or so it appears.

Lots of times piping a straight line is the most elusive cookie skill of all.  It  can turn that *simple cookie project* into a nightmare!

A picture (or in this case a video) is worth a thousand words. 

 I hope this helped give everyone an idea of how to make beautiful snowflake cookies.  Before I go, I'd like to give you a few tips for success...

  • Remember, be creative! You can have aqua snowflakes if you wanna =) 
  • And most importantly of all, IT'S only a cookie!  I wish every mistake had as happy an ending as eating a tasty cookie!

Give these a shot! You will be the hit of your holiday happening!

Are you using royal icing? I've always been told not to put royal icing in a plastic bag with couplers and to only use parchement triangles (which are a pain). If I can use plastic, I'll be very happy!

Great job Callye!

Yes, Missy, I use plastic all the time. I hang out with some old timer cake ladies, and they DESPISE plastic. I actually got corrected about that the other day. Old testament icing law SAYS, RI cannot even touch plastic.

We got on the subject while talking about freezing it (yes, you can do that too) Anyway, she wont store her RI in plastic mis it in plastic or anything. I have NEVER ever had a problem.

At busy times like now, I put my RI in Saran wrap first so I dont have to wash bags.

As for Parchment triangles, good for some stuff, but I dont care much for them. It takes almost NOTHING for the icing to fry out in them, you cannot change the tips, they are hard to keep closed...If you are looking for efficiency, I wouldn't go that route...try the bags and try them with clingwrap inside. I think you will be pleased.

Great tutorial Callye!! I have only used Wilton tips, and definitely have trouble with my icing I am going to invest in PME tips. You are so funny....I love how you said you could get obsessive over the little too!!!
