In the video, Cookielicious NZ made a step-by-step process on how to make the perfect Christmas-themed cookies.

She used cookie cutters shaped like Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus, reindeer, and Christmas trees.

But you can always use other Christmas characters if you have them.

Art is limitless, even with cookies.

Royal Icings mainly composed the designs.

The video shows her demonstrating the design for Mrs. Claus.

With the use of edible markers and paper stencils, she created the character one icing color at a time.

With the base colors laid out using the icing, she then added more details to the Christmas character.

To make the cheeks look pink, she added pink edible dust with a round brush.

The glasses were also outlined with white icing using a thinner-tipped pipe.

The details on the eyes were created using a black edible marker.

Could Mrs. Clause be any cuter?

She added another layer of icing to Mrs. Claus’ nose and pink icing for the mouth.

She made gold from luster dust.

With a fine-tipped brush, she spread the edible gold paint on the glasses to make them more realistic.

She used molds for the fondant bows and placed them into the hair of Mrs. Claus with a bit of icing to stick it.

By using the same process, she created other Christmas character designs with intricate details.

It is really fun to watch.

It’s even more fun if you are the one making it.

Aside from creating these beautiful arts, she shared the links to her previous works and recipes for the cookies and the royal icing, together with tips.
