Sugar Beach Events had a special Christmas cookie decorating event this past Saturday, December 13th, where Chef Natalie shared many of her Christmas cookie tips, from baking to decorating. Everyone had such a wonderful time decorating their own cookies. It was a great way to get into the Christmas spirit and everyone that came thanked Chef Natalie for equipping them with some good decorating knowledge. For those of you who were not able to attend, here are some of the top tips:
COOKIE BAKING TIPS
Tip #1: Make sure to read your recipe! Read the whole recipe from beginning to end so you know what you need to do, and to make sure you have all the ingredients and tools!
Tip #2: Set a timer. There is nothing worse than burnt cookies! Once you do your first batch of successful little delights, write the time down. That way, all your cookies should turn out to be cooked exactly the same.
Tip #3: Most cookie doughs will hold in the fridge for several days or the freezer for several months! Don’t be afraid to make the dough ahead of time so it is ready when you are.
COOKIE DECORATING TIPS
Tip #1: Most important tip to successful cookie decorating is to have fun.
Tip #2: Make sure your frosting is thick enough to dry. You can always add powered sugar if you find it is too thin. If it’s too thick, just add a little bit of water.
Tip #3: Sprinkles make excellent accent decoration. You can use them to create buttons, eyes, clothing, or even a mouth.
Chef Natalie says, “Frosting is your friend, and decorating should be fun!”
