Here’s a fun and edible craft for our Christmas in July week! This time, we’re going to use the Cricut Cake to cut frosting sheets to make amazing holiday cookies you’ll be so proud to serve, you won’t want to eat!
- Cricut Cake Machine
- Frosting Sheets
- Canned Frosting & blue food coloring
- Drop and bake refrigerated cookies
Start off my baking your cookies and let them cool. In the meanwhile, add a few drops of blue food coloring to your frosting and mix well. Frost your cooled cookies.
To make the snowflake decorations,we’re going to cut shapes from the frosting sheets. First, prepare the mat by brushing solid vegetable shortening on the cutting mat.
Then, remove the frosting sheet from the package and backing sheet and place it on the mat. Use a rolling pin to smooth out any bubbles and make sure the frosting sheet is very well adhered.
Using the Cake Basics cart that comes with your machine, select the snowflake image. I adjusted the size using the size wheel until the display read 2″. That’s just about perfect for a cookie!
Hit the “cut” button, and viola! Frosting sheet snowflakes!
Repeat as many times as you need for your batch of cookies. Something to take note of: if you are using a tinted frosting, the frosting sheets will become translucent where they touch the frosting. For best results, frost your cookies beforehand and then place our snowflake decorations just before serving. (Keep them in a plastic baggie so they don’t go stale in the meanwhile.)
Now for a GIVEAWAY! We’re going to give one lucky reader a Cricut Cake cartridge- HOLIDAY CAKES! That way you’ll be able to create lovely items for all your holiday occasions. And don’t forget, the Cricut Cake cartridge will work perfectly in your Expression, baby Bug, or Create machine too! We’ll select one winner at random at 12:00 EST on Friday, July 23. Good Luck!
