and a semi steady hand 🙂
So, first, you’ll need to ice the cookies so that your snowpeople are nice and snowy white.
Then you will place the eyes and ear muffs. Press the eyes and ear muffs into wet icing and when the icing dries the decorations will be glued into place.
Draw the nose and mouth with the Wilton paints.
To connect the ear muffs use a small piece of a twizzler or candy rope.
And you’re all done! These cookies are fun to make, yummy to eat, and made perfect gifts for friends and neighbors.
