What You Need:

  • sugar cookies
  • large tweezers ($10; sweetdanib.com)
  • white cookie icing
  • icing bottles ($20; sweetdanib.com)
  • toothpick
  • paper plate
  • colored sprinkles
  • offset spatula
  • blue and yellow sugar pearls
  1. 1

    Using tweezers, select orange sprinkles from the mix and set aside. These will form the snowman’s carrot nose.

  2. 2

    Using a bottle filled with white icing, outline the hat portion of the cookie, leaving a slight border from the edge of the cookie. Fill in the hat with icing.

    Tip: Using an icing bottle with a tip gives you more control. You can also buy pre-packaged tubes of icing at the supermarket.

  3. 3

    Using a toothpick, pop any air bubbles in the icing.

  4. 4

    On a paper plate, sprinkle the cookie with colored sprinkles, making sure to cover the icing completely. Shake off the excess sprinkles.

    Tip: An inexpensive paper plate is best. Conserve the excess sprinkles by bending the plate and pouring the sprinkles back into its original container for future use.

  5. 5

    Use a toothpick to smooth out and even the bottom of the hat.

  6. 6

    Outline the rest of the cookie in white icing.

  7. 7

    Fill in the cookie with icing and smooth out with an offset spatula.

    Tip: Shake the cookie after smoothing out the icing to eliminate bumps and allow the icing to settle.

  8. 8

    Using tweezers, place the blue sugar pearls for eyes, orange sprinkle for the nose, and yellow sugar pearls for the buttons.

  9. 9

    Let dry for 12 hours.
