There is nothing better than gathering neighbors and friends to share in decorating Christmas holiday cookies.

For me it is a thrill as I am usually decorating myself for photo shoots and Youtube videos. So, having people join me in what I love is fantastic.

During the holidays I plan a cookie decorating party for friends. Then on Christmas Eve my family decorates cookies for Santa. 

Planning for the fun is important. Here are some tips for you:

Getting Ready for the Party:

Recipes for sugar cookies and icings below:

  1. Bake cookies – If you have our Holiday Baking Kit, you already are ready to bake. 
  2. Need cookie recipes, click link below for my 15 Holiday Roll-out eCookbook (free to you as a gift)
  3. Make royal icing bags about an hour before the party – See below for easy Royal Icing recipes. Use the piping bags that came in your kit (cut tiny hole) or use freezer plastic bags. Use rubber bands to keep icing in bags and protect from drying out. 
  4. Mix colors needed for royal icing – a few drops go a long way so test with just 1 or 2 drops. 
  5. Set up decorating tables and chairs with tablecloth – use plastic so not to stain fabric tablecloths
  6. Place embellishments in small bowls and place on tables – You can find edible sprinkles at your local grocery store or craft store.
  7. Place paper towels or paper plates for cookies to lay on while they decorate.
  8. Provide drinks (coffee, tea, hot cocoa, etc.)
  9. Provide take-home boxes or plates.
  10. Have Christmas music ready to play to make it even more festive.

Have fun!!!

How to Make Royal Icing:

6 Tablespoons warm water.

Mix all together. Add more powdered sugar if runny, or more water if too thick.

Once made, cover so that it doesn’t dry out. 

Using Egg Whites Method:

3 Cups Powdered sugar

3 eggs (egg white only) OR 3 Tablespoons pasteurized egg whites (found in refrigerated section in grocery store).  

Mix all together. Add more powdered sugar if runny, or more a few drops of warm water if too thick.

Once you decorate cookies, allow to dry for up to 2 hours. 

Make Sweet Memories with your Cookie Decorating gathering. 

The best part is seeing all the different cookies each person makes. 

Also, set up a Hot Cocoa bar and a take home cookie area.
