Simple Santa

I wanted to design some simple but sweet cookies this year involving Santa.  Something geometric but not complicated.  Here is that design!

These are the steps involved in creating them.  Sorry about the poor quality of the first photos.  One day I will make myself a photo booth…

I first made the “oval face” using a bit of ivory food coloring.  That dried for 4 hours before I added his red hat.

While the red hat was still wet, I sprinkled on coarse, clear sugar crystals.

Then I worked on his beard.  A quick coat of RI white with little round white non-pariels and voila!

I let this all set overnight (isn’t necessary if you are careful) and got to work on his face.  A Q-Tip to add his blush and two simple wide eyes with black royal icing, Santa was complete.

The finished product!  Ho.ho.hope you like!
