Nativity Cookies

In December, our church puts on a Nativity display. It is an amazing collection of nativities from all over the world that are loaned from many local members. I have a small collection of nativities and have wanted to make nativity cookies for several years. I had imagined little pieces all intricately decorated like the Holy Family, Shepherds, Wisemen, and all the animals. Maybe I'll get to that someday, but for the event this year, I went the easier route. I airbrushed the blue backgrounds then stenciled the stable scene and star in royal icing. I thought adding the glittery disco dust to the star gave them a little more sparkle. The red poinsettias and green holly cookies were the perfect setting for the fancy nativity cookies.

Happy 50th Anniversary Cookies!

Hello, world! I've been in cookie limbo for a long time. I've done a few cookie sets we need to catch up on. Here's the prettiest of the bunch.
I made these for my wonderful in-laws' 50th wedding anniversary. I used my new airbrush and a lacy stencil to add some gold shimmer. They were beautiful in person. The glittery 50's were so pretty!
