Cookie, that is. Here’s an easy way to decorate candy cane cookies for Christmas. Two colors are all you’ll need. This is a great cookie for beginning cookie decorators.
*Find info on cookie decorating supplies and where to get them HERE.
step one: bake your cookies
Use your own recipe or mine to cut out and bake your cookies. Let cool.
step two: color your frosting
Prepare a frosting bag with a 2 tip and a frosting bag with a 4 tip using the bags, tips, and couplers. (See bag package for instructions.) Color about 1/2-3/4 cup of frosting red. Color the same amount with white. Fill the bag with the 2 tip with red and close tightly with a rubber band. Fill the 4 tip bag with white and close tightly with a rubber band.
step three: decorated your cookies
With the white 4 tip, outline the candy cane. Let set about ten minutes and fill with the white 4 tip. Using a zig zag motion, start from the tip and pipe your frosting back and forth to fill. Let set about ten minutes. Using the red with 2 tip, pipe stripes on top of the candy cane.
for variation: Clean and switch the tips on the bags. Fill the candy cane background with red 4 tip and pipe white stripes with the 2 tip.
