Thank you for taking the time to create the tutorial! These are sooo cute! My son's preschool is having a cookie exchange that I was sooo not looking forward to. I was actually just going to do little tiny package cakes (pah! I make cakes NOT cookies) but THEN I SAW THESE! SOLD! They are perfect and will be served up with love!
You have a great website, by the way, with some pretty AMAZING cakes!
Thank you so much for sharing! My mom (who would rather build things than be in a kitchen) asked me to bake cookies for her friend's cookie exchange and invited me to attend. She picked out her favorite type to have me make for her contribution, but I didn't know what I was going to take...until I saw these! I'm making them tomorrow I hope they turn out half as cute as these.
Great! Thanks for sharing the tutorial! Your cookies are so cute!!!
Thanks for sharing this. These are too cute!!
fantastic idea & sooo cute!
Someone asked if you can use refrigerated store bought cookie dough. It appears the answer is most definitely "yes".
How far in advance can these be made and still be fresh?
Thanks for the tutorial
I think it depends on how you plan to store them. If you make them, let them dry (the icing) and then store in a cool dry place in a tupperware or in a sealed bag, you should be good for a few weeks.
Thanks for sharing I can't wait to make them for my daughters class Friday love them.
Thank you for this darling idea! I baked the cookies the other day and then followed your instructions to decorate three of them as a test run last night. They are so easy and so darned cute! I just have to remember to take it more slowly with thinning the RI, I over thinned my test batch and in 24 hrs it still wasn't hard .
Anyway I can't wait to finish the rest of these. Even with my overthinned RI they are SO CUTE and such great little gifts. Chippi your RI looks PERFECT!
Me and my nephew did some of these cookies last night. I haven't taken pictures of them yet, but they were super easy. We really had fun doing them! I used white royal icing for snow balls.
Thanks for the tutorial! I made these yesterday and they are just adorable. Will post photo when I put them out for Christmas.
Thank You , I made these this weekend a snowy one at that, and they turned out really cute, I used the packaged sugar cookie mix from Betty Crocker, and they turned out really tasty , i added some of my own touches(: i would post a picture but i ate them all, well me and the next door neighbors kid's.
Every year I go to my brothers for Christmas. My nieces and nephews know that Aunt Christie will have some awesome cookie decorating thing to do with them. I wasn't sure what I was going to do this year....and lo and behold Santa brought my gift early this year! I am so making these with them - they will go bonkers for these! I can't wait! Thank you for the wonderful instructions - I feel so blessed with all the information/ideas that I have received from CC!
These are just to cute. I cannot wait to give these to my neice and nephews. Thanks for the tutorial
uuuughhh!!! Pleeeeeze, Stacey, give credit for the design where credit is due! I've been chasing Mr. Melty Snowman all over the web, and he's taken over Cake Central. I don't mind if my ideas are copied, used for inspiration, etc (that's why I post them on my blog) but I only ask in fairness and courtesy to be linked to or given credit. The melting snowman cookie is my design, from my blog, December 2008!!! But Stacey has created a tutorial with only slight mention (after I plead for credit) for the inspiration in a separate post.
I made my first melted snowman cookie in 2008 and never even knew who you were.
It's not my intention to slight you or upset you. I did give credit for the original idea. Both on Cake Central and on my blog.
Your cookie uses a different technique and although your cookie is a melted snowman, he is a little different. You don't use marshmallows, you form your cookies differently and you decorate differently.
I put together a tutorial because people wanted to know how I made a melted marshmallow head. That is unique to me. It's a technique that I came up with.
There are LOADS of original ideas for a variety of designs out there that get altered and used in different ways.
I think it is a wonderful compliment to your creativity that an idea you had is being used as a starting point to get the creative juices of so many flowing.
apologies... you're totally right!!! I've been neurotic about Mr. Melty (unlike everything else I've created, which I've let go) because pictures have been stolen from my blog (NOT your guys, totally different scenario) and entered in contests and posted as others' creations, so I'm just more attuned to this guy and have been following him around. And it's also made me really focused on constantly linking to my inspiration sources (of which there are many). Anyway, so sorry to drag you along on my Mr. Melty angst!
