Diva Claus Decorated Cookies

Share it!   


Don’t know what to get the fashionista in your life this Christmas?

Can’t go wrong with sweet and stylish Diva Claus cookies.  😉

I had fun making these and once I got going I found there were endless ways of ‘dressing them up’.

I ran out of cookies before I ran out of ideas.

The original idea for the bejewelled shoe cookies came from Rosey Sugar.  If you haven’t seen them, you must click over to her page here to see what she makes.  I just love her style and her beautiful cookies.

The icing on this green handbag needed to be mixed a bit more.  For a few tips on cookie decorating mistakes to avoid (which I need remember lol), click on this post here.

It’s hard to see in the picture below, but of course I had to add my favorite, disco dust, for some shoe bling.  If you need a ‘how-to’ on using disco dust, click here.

The holly sprinkles were a quick and easy way to dress this handbag up.

If you’d like to try making these cookies here is everything you’ll need and more:

Happy decorating!

      You can store them in a cool, dry place in Tupperware with parchment paper in between each layer. I would say up to 2 weeks max. You could freeze them as well for up to 6 months. I usually put mine in a clear cellophane bag tied with a ribbon, and give them away.

    Marian, LOVE your Diva Claus Cookies!! I actually like the effect of the green icing (which you said needed to be mixed more!). Happens to me all the time. Your creativity amazes me!

    Marian, these are beeeautiful! Your cookies are perfection. I have seen many bakers that are satisfied with mis shapen cookies, uneven borders. But your attention to detail is inspiring. Every cookie, line, circle is perfect!! You are truly amazing!

    Oh I had a question..I’ve always made RI using your recipe and tutorial. However I notice a lot of RI recipes want the icing to be beaten stiff/thick and not smooth flowing like yours. Is there a difference? I have never used that method…seems it would be to “gloopy”

    Awesome! On the Ms Clause white purse and shoe did you use a stamp to get the leaves?

    Thanks Susan =)

    Serene, I’m not exactly sure I know what you mean, so I’ll have to say I don’t know 😉 Do you mean the consistency of the icing when decorating? I definitely like it smooth so that it flows well.

    Janelle, those are just holly sprinkles. There’s a list in the post of all the things you’ll need to make these cookies; there’s a link to the holly sprinkles there.

    Love these! I love the dragees. I’m so sad that we can’t get them in California. They add something so special to cakes and cookies.
