Additional Information

Step 1

Prepare and roll out dough. Cut trees using cutters from set; cut 1 1/2 x 1 in. easel for each cookie. Bake and cool.

Step 2

For trees with sugar backgrounds, sprinkle on colored sugar before baking; add tip 4 icing zigzag or confetti sprinkles after cooling.

Step 3

For nonpareil tree, cover with tip 13 stars; sprinkle on nonpareils.

Step 4

For trees with color flow backgrounds, outline with tip 2 and full-strength icing; flow in with thinned icing (stars and tree trunks should also be done now with color flow). For versions with flow-in decorations, before background icing has set, use tip 2 to pipe on full-strength color flow polka dots (use assorted colors and sizes), horizontal lines (alternate colors) or zigzags (use 2 colors and swirl with a toothpick).

Your decorations will sink and blend right into the background! Let color flow trees dry overnight before adding decorations in royal or color flow icing.

Step 5

We show tip 2 lattice, tip 2 garland, tip 13 stars, tip 1 dots, outlines, starbursts and spirals. Stars and tree trunks can be decorated using tip 2, 3 or 13 icing zigzags or tip 2 to outline and fill in (pat smooth with finger dipped in cornstarch).

Step 6

Attach easel to cookie back with royal icing.

*Combine Kelly Green with Leaf Green for green shades shown. Combine Christmas Red with Red-Red for red shown. Combine Lemon Yellow with Golden Yellow for yellow shown. Combine Brown with Red-Red for brown shown

The Zigzag is a popular way to fill in outlined areas, perfect for ribbed sweater and cuff effects. You can also use tight zigzags to cover the entire side of your cake—they look great!

The star tip creates the most celebrated, easily accomplished decorations! The serrated edges of the star tip make ridges in the icing as you squeeze it out. Because fill in requires so much piping from the same bag, keep replenishing icing in bag.
