let it snow (and how to draw a snowflake on a cookie)


These snowflakes and snowmen are incredibly easy to make… with white fudge covered Oreos. You can cut out snowflake and snowman cookies, pipe and fill them all with white backgrounds. I’ve done this. Hundreds, nay thousands, of times. But Oreo does the time consuming part for you. And forgive the subject line if you think drawing a snowflake is kindergarten stuff, but I remember way back to my first snowflake cookie. It took awhile to get the configuration right. So I’ve included tips on this as well.

SNOWFLAKE OREOS

you will need:
white fudge covered oreos
1 decorating bag
1 coupler

1 rubber band

1 size “2” tip
Americolor soft gel paste (Sky Blue) *
Frosting (recipe here)*

*you can get the decorating bag, coupler and tip at any major craft store. You can of course use any coloring, like those found in craft stores, but I prefer Americolor. I included a frosting recipe, but you can use your own or store-bought, too.

the only step:
Prepare a frosting bag with a size 2 tip (use the instructions on the frosting bag box) and fill with light blue frosting. Close tightly with the rubber band. Pipe snowflakes on Oreos. (See below for “How to Draw a Snowflake.”) Let set at room temperature overnight.

SNOWMAN OREOS

you will need:
white fudge covered oreos
2 decorating bags

2 couplers
2 size “2” tips

2 rubber bands
Americolor soft gel pastes (Orange and Super Black)

frosting

see above for notes on supplies

to decorate:
Prepare two frosting bags using the bags, couplers and size 2 tips. Fill one bag with orange and one bag with black frosting. Close tightly with the rubber bands. Pipe the smiley face with the black. Pipe the carrot with the orange. For carrot, I start at the middle of the circle and squiggle up and down, back and forth towards the edge of the circle, trailing off at the end to form a point.

How to Draw a Snowflake
The secret to drawing a snowflake is starting with a strong base: 3 lines (to make 6 spokes). That’s it. You draw an “X” and then draw a line through the center horizontally. From there, you can just add your details, using the same details–“V”s, diamonds, loops or dots–in each of the 6 sections. The pictures below show some ideas (to the right of each snowflake are the shapes I used.)

    This idea appeals to me in so many ways! I love the idea of using the oreos…time-saving! and adding the snowflake on top adds that personal touch. They look awesome! I’m going to have to find white fudge-covered oreos though…
