25 photos 'til Christmas - Day 16

The gingerbread ornaments - They look really cute from further away.  I learned a few things along the way.  Making Royal Icing is really easy.  It's really pretty - glossy.  If you want sprinkles to stick to it, you better not wait.  Pipe out a little bit at a time or at record speed. Add sprinkles.  Repeat until finished with cookie. Get bigger cookie cutters - the chunky sprinkles look like a bit much on these average size cookies.  And last of all, if I'm ever going to do this again, I must buy some cookie decorating supplies instead of making do with corner cut out of a ziploc bag. I do love how they turned out, simply because we made them with my children and they had FUN.

My daughter decorated this one.
