Step 1

In advance: Make cookies. Prepare and roll out dough. Using patterns, cut out head and 2 shoes (flip pattern for 2nd shoe). Use cookie cutter to cut 2 hands; flip 1 before baking. Cut six 1 x 2 in. rectangles for cookie supports. Bake and cool.

Step 2

Also: Decorate cookies using royal icing. Outline all cookies with tip 3. Cover hands and shoes with tip 16 stars. For head, use tip 3 to outline and fill in mouth and tongue (pat smooth with finger dipped in cornstarch). Pipe tip 6 dot eyes; pat smooth. Cover face and ears with tip 16 stars; overpipe nose and cheeks for dimension. Pipe tip 18 pull-out stars for hair and shoe spikes. Pipe tip 2 outline shoe laces. Let dry.

Step 3

Bake and cool cake. Position on wrapped board cut 1 in. larger than cake on all sides. Ice sides and background areas smooth. Use pattern to mark body details with toothpicks. Outline details with tip 3; cover with tip 16 stars. Pipe tip 2 name and tip 3 number. Pipe tip 18 pull-out star grass bottom border. Position icing decorations. Use melted candy to attach cookie supports to back of head (use 2), hands and shoes; position on star points.
