‘Tis the season for cookie decorating! (No matter that I love doing it all year round). I’ve been playing around with using royal icing to create different textures, and although I still need some practice with this one, here’s my version of cable-knit decorated hat and mitten cookies. This post is a short one too, I’m already thinking about the next one. In case you’d like to make these, here’s a little video and recipes, tools etc. you’ll need below:

    Am I seeing this correctly… Did you decorate the backside of the cookie? They are so cute though. I hope my hand strength allows me to attempt these soon. I’m always looking for ways to improve my skills so I truly appreciate these tutorials. Thank you so much for sharing your talents and knowledge with us all. ❤️
