Snowflake Cookies Using the Cricut Cake!

Pinterest

This is a post I wrote for CraftsUnleashed.com for their “Christmas in July” series- so I thought it was about time I shared it here, too!

Here’s a fun and edible craft for your Christmas parties! 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!

You’ll need:

  • 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.

The frosting sheet will become translucent when applied to the mat.The frosting sheet will become translucent when applied to the mat.

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!

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.)

    Kim, it is pretty cool. Also, since I wrote this post they’ve come out with the “mini-cake”- one that cuts 6″ by 12″, like the Cricut Create. It’s great for home cooks or folks who don’t what to do huge designs. (Personally, I only use it for small cakes, cupcakes, & cookies. Hope Santa is good to you! ; )

    Those are so pretty! Wow. You’re right – they are so lovely I really wouldn’t want to eat them. (And I want to eat everything!)
