Flour Bowl

Bake gingerbread cookies according to directions. Allow them to cool before decorating. 


While the cookies cool, set up your piping bags with royal icing to have everything ready for decorating.


Turn the cookies upside-down. Start by piping a fluffy white circle near one of the arms to create the first eye. Set aside and let it dry for 15 minutes.


Pipe the second eye the same way. You can also pipe on the red nose with a drop of white. Allow it to dry for another 15 to 20 minutes.


On the arms, fill in brown sections for the ears. Let them dry for 15 to 20 minutes before piping in the pink centers.


Draw on the antlers from the tops of the eyes to the tops of the cookie. Add black dots to the centers of the eyes.


Let the cookies dry completely before serving; for best results, 6-8 hours. Enjoy!
