North Pole Snickerdoodles with a visit from Mr. Sugar Cone Santa

North Pole Snickerdoodles

Sooooo......I made some snickerdoodles
the other day and they kinda looked funny.

I used the recipe I found on all recipes
that you can find by clicking HERE.

They ended up sorta FLAT, but tasted super good.
Truth be told, I am a box baker. 
Not a scratch baker, per se. 

So...I was looking at these flat doodles and said 
to myself, "Self, you need to FANCY these
FLAT doodles up, they look pathetic." 

oh that poor poor pathetic snickerdoodle

So self took the challenge and used some left
over royal icing (because I am cool like the cookie
ladies now and have that stuff just laying around) and 
piped on some cloud puffs with my #18 tip and 
slapped on a nice mini candy cane stick with a mini
M&M on top. Then, I cut out that north pole label from a
FREE DOWNLOAD found Here at One Charming Party.

Then I sat back and said, "YOU DA BOMB!"

Then, with all my NEW confidence and being inspired by 
this felt cone Santa I saw on Pinterest...
felt craft santa how to found by clicking here

I turned this 
pathetic little sugar cone......

into this.....

I just dipped the cone into melted red chocolate candy
coating from Wilton and when dry added the fondant details.


For those interested, I generally use
Sweet Sugarbelle's Royal Icing 
(the reduced size one)
Recipe Found HERE.

Linking up to TIDY MOM  and some GREAT

Well arent you just Miss Awesome now! I love these cookies, so super cute and the Santa is totally adorable!

Lisa said...

So, so cute! I particularly love the Santa. He kind of reminds me of the little elf people that Vanessa makes at A Fanciful Twist (that is a compliment by the way). Since you are now a cool cookie lady, you will have a perpetual supply of left over icing. Hard to throw it out isn't it?
You are da bomb!

I'm guilty of never even tasting Snikernoodles, I've been meaning to make them for ages now!
Happy holidays!
