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.
