Frosty the Snowman

December 23, 2013

The gifts are wrapped and under the tree, the baking is done and in the freezer.  The house is ready for company and we are relaxed and waiting.  Tomorrow is Christmas Eve and so I have come to my last post of the year.  Before I share with you how I made Frosty the Snowman cookies inspired by the very talented Mike of Semi-Sweet Designs, I have to check off one last *to do for blog* off my list.

It has been a year since we were gifted with the Touch20 Technology faucet from Delta Canada.  I never let up on my demands from this beautiful piece of engineering and over the past two months I really put it through its paces. It did not disappoint and continues to work like a charm for us and here we are a year later, still running on the original batteries.  So to Delta Canada, thank you so much for providing us with the Linden model of your Touch20 Technology faucet.  We continue to be delighted with its performance and design and are very grateful for your generosity.

Before you read through the following tutorial I want to thank all of my visitors for taking time over the past year to stop by my site.  I am grateful for each of your visits, for every single one of your comments and for your encouragement.  I started cookie decorating almost four years ago because of the work and knowledge shared by a handful of decorators I found on the web.  Bridget, Gail, Callye and Rene.  Since then I continue to be motivated and inspired by not only these original four but by many countless other extremely talented decorators that I have come to know on-line.  I am grateful that this community of cookiers so willingly shares their talents and expertise and I’m continually inspired to keep at this craft because so many of you are so supportive of me and of the craft itself.  Whether I kept up a blog or not, I’d still be decorating cookies because I’ve been hooked ever since I made my first batch of royal icing and stuffed a piping bag full of it.  Cookie decorating has brought me something that as relatively shy and introverted retired woman living quietly in the country with her husband never thought that I would have.  New and truly valued friendships from all over the world, some are fellow cookiers, other are not.  It is with much humility and sincere appreciation that I extend to all of you the warmest of Christmas blessings for you and your loved ones.  May the coming year hold much hope and happiness for all of you.

Frosty the Snowman with Paula's Christmas Greeting

Frosty Tutorial 

Using my Kopykake projector, I traced the image of Frosty with an edible marker onto all of the cookies.  With black piping icing I went over the trace lines and then filled in the hat band with black flood icing.

Using grey flood icing the rest of the hats were filled in.

White flood icing was used next to fill in the faces.

After leaving the cookies to dry overnight, the face detail was added.  Black piping for the eyes and mouths.  A red oval drawn for the noses and brown piping for the pipes.

Then a darker shade of brown flood icing was used to fill in the pipes and red flood icing was used to fill in the noses.  Pink icing was used to create a flower on the hats and a white pearl candy was added to the center of each flower.

See you in 2014!  With many thanks ~ Paula

I just love these, Paula! Wish I knew how to do this – and had the time. Of course, I would probably eat way too many of my creations! Sounds like you have the bulk of your prep done and will be able to relax and enjoy your holiday celebrations. Wishing you and your family a most blessed Christmas!!!

I like that you left out some undecorated cookie dough around.
Merry Christmas Paula.

Paula when I met you, you were a cookie artist waiting to bloom, and bloom you have! It’s amazing what you’ve accomplished in 4 short years of cookie artistry. Even though I’m no longer an active “cookier” I still love seeing all your creations and the creations of all the other cookie artists out there. I believe my short time in the cookie world was to lead me to friends like you! Friends I would/do cherish and be inspired by on a daily basis! Merry Christmas dear Paula and family! I wish you joy, peace, much love and of course lots of cookies this holiday season and in the coming new year! XOXO
With love, Renee
