I made these cookies a few weeks ago for some gifts for the holidays, using my new tree cutter. Just pipe.
For the recipe that I use to make royal icing, click here.
To decorate the trees, be as creative as you like with candy and sprinkles! To adhere the silver dragees, I used tweezers to immediately place each one onto the wet flood. The flooded icing acts as glue to hold the candies in place. For the larger candy balls, I used my hands to place each one.
To package these gifts, I bought some silver cookie containers and styrofoam balls. First, I wrapped the ball in green tissue paper and poked a reindeer cake pop into the middle. To learn how to make Reindeer Cake Pops, click here.
Next, I leaned three cookies against the stick of the cake pop.
Finally, I wrapped each package in clear cellophane.
My gifts were complete.
