Easy peasy, whimsical and sweet, this gingerbread girl was so fun to make. I’m going to get right down to it and let you know all the details on how to make her, as decorating my Christmas tree is next on my list, and I can’t wait to start. So happy cookie and tree decorating to you as well, and please feel free to drop me a comment below if you have any questions!

 

How to Decorate Gingerbread Girl Cookies with Royal Icing

Gingerbread Cookie Recipe

The gingerbread cookie recipe can be found here. There are other cut-out cookie recipes here.

What you’ll need (these are affiliate links):

For the dough, I used a large rolling pin and the*Dough E-Z Mat to roll out the dough. You’ll also need baking sheets.

*I would like you to know that I will receive an affiliate commission if you purchase the Dough E-Z mat through my site and I only recommend products that I love and use myself. You can get 10% off your purchase of the Dough E-Z mat with coupon code sweetopia.

Thanks to Miss Kate Cuttables for allowing me to share the gingerbread man design which I purchased on their site here. I had the cookie cutter custom made through How Sweet is That?, but the cutters are not allowed to be sold. You can find similar gingerbread man and girl cutters here. You could take a gingerbread boy cutter and add a gumpaste or fondant bow to make it more girly.

Royal Icing

You can find my favorite royal icing recipe here. The consistency of icing is key for easy decorating. Click here to see a YouTube video on finding the right icing thickness.

Icing gel paste colors used; Wilton brown, Wilton black, Wilton no-taste red, Wilton ivory, Wilton pink

    Hi Marian! I love your site! I’m trying to make show stopper cookie. I tried my good friends shortbread recipe but it fell flat, literally, the dough spread – a lot! I notice you’re not in love with the flavor of sugar cookies, what would you recommend for a very yummy cookie dough that can hold it’s shape? Thanks!
