Poinsettia Wreath Cookies

You guys, it’s been SO LONG since I’ve had the chance to blog, I almost forgot how to post tutorials on here! I’ve been more focused on the selling side of Melissa Joy these days, so the “how-to cookie” stuff tends to fall by the wayside. I’ve added a gallery of my work to the menu bar, organized by category, for those more interested in what I’ve created recently. That is still a work in progress. I’m better at baking than I am at this web junk, but I’ll get there!

For today, I’ve created a tiny tutorial on how to make my pretty poinsettia wreath cookies! Hallelujah! And if you’re a cookie decorator, brief and to the point during the month of December is a good thing. This tutorial is also for my own reference, because next year I’ll need a refresher on how to create them again for sure. #midlifebrain

Here is a picture diary on making Christmas poinsettia wreath cookies! Starting with a favorite cookie recipe and ivory colored royal icing…

step-1-and-2

I used that round cookie cutter as a guide to draw the circles. I’m ornery like that.

step-3

I used a #2 tip to create the poinsettias. Start with the tip at the center of the flower and drag it out. I have some fabulous, sparkly gold sprinkles I got from CookieCon for the middles, but yellow nonpareils would be great too.

step-4-5

step-6

And done! These do take some time and patience to produce (as most decorated cookies do, right?!), but I love them so much. Definitely one of my faves this season!

Merry holidays to you, my friends. I hope I get back here to share another tiny tutorial with you before next Christmas. 😉 Until then, happy baking…or more importantly, happy cookie EATING!
