Christmas Shortbread

every year at Christmas I make shortbread for my Mum (she gives me back the tin to refill it :P) and this year I also made Christmas trees :)

these are mums shortbread :)


this is the icing (just plain old royal icing)


a bit of green food colouring


Now I used a lollypop stick to be the centre of my Christmas tree and used some royal icing and an upside down cup while it set


it set nicely over night :)


these are my cookies cooling on the rack




all ready for icing


using the star nozzle I piped an outline in green royal icing







then using the grass tip I added a little extra to give it a more tree like feel






then I started building













then I added somedecorations




and this one got some snow



then I wrapped them all up




and can't wait to give them out when we see our family :)

Cadbury Ate Rudolf

Cadbury got a Rudolf squeaky toy and she spent a short time eating him :P



















most toys don't take too long to destroy :P
