Have you ever made a Real Snowman? Let's face it, it can be a chore. Soggy mittens, wet pants, not to mention the disturbing slow motion transformation Snowy McSnowerton will inevitably... ugh, we have to stop there...

Now, meet this guy! Such a happy Snowman!

He's perfect inside these adorable Snowglobe Cookies (even if we're a little bit worried about him melting himself with that lantern). Yeah, yeah, we know... he's gonna get eaten. Is this better than a slow motion melt? Uh, yeah! Duh. Of course. Just ask any Snowman. We did. We've sized him perfectly to fit in the included Snow Globe Cookie Cutter, but you could stencil him on plaque cookies as well.  Shown Stenciled in Black Royal Icing, and painted with a mixture of our Christmas Stained Glass Petal Dust and Cooking oil so that the Black Royal Icing won't smear if you brush over it...genius! This mesh stencil set comes with both designs shown below AND includes a Snowglobe cutter!

NOW. Get yourself some figgy pudding, and get your Bob Cratchit on with this gorgeous Victorian Christmas Silhouette Mesh Stencil Set

We've sized them perfectly to fit in the included Snow Globe Cookie Cutter, but you could stencil them on plaque cookies as well. Watch this VIDEO using our Gold Edible Fabric, Black Royal Icing Mix, Sanding Sugar and Edible Glitter! Be sure after watching the video to Scroll down to the bottom of the page for our Perfect Sugar Cookie Recipe! Ok, watch this!

And, have you seen our new Polar Bear Cookies Mesh Stencil Set? This adorable cookie cutter and mesh stencil set is not  just adorable and fun to use, but it apparently has power over weather patterns 'cause the morning after we made these bad boys, we woke up to a whole day's worth of the white stuff. You've been warned.

We love these big lugs! The set includes the cookie cutter, two "Let it Snow" mesh stencils and one scarf pattern mesh stencil. So, with one swipe of royal icing, you can make 5 bear scarves! We used our Wickedly Good Fondant for the scarves, which just so happens to come in a gorgeous turquoise color so you don't even have to color fondant.  How's that for easy? But of course, we've got video proof:

Now if you think we make that look too easy, you'll just have to see our Beary Christmas Cookie Stencil set. Cause it just so happens that after we shot the video, for these bad boys, a bunch of the ECG's out of town relatives descended upon her Evil Lair. And they wanted to play. So she passed out cookies, stencils and Royal Icing and they had a blast!

Matter of fact, it was Aunt Martha and Aunt Kitty who decided to steal cousin Rachel's stenciled fondant before she could cut it into strips, to make their bear an ugly Christmas sweater!

Any of you from Texas, be warned...those two are headed back down there, and they're gonna be putting fondant sweaters on any cookie within their reach.   

The ECG already plans to mail them one of our Bigfoot Cookie Cutters on Monday, so stay tuned. 

Now, many of you have asked how the ECG gets her sugar cookies to bake so perfectly smooth and flat. Did she meet the Devil at a Crossroads and decide that she wasn't cut out to be a blues guitar player, so instead, she'd get the secret recipe for perfect cookies every time? Damn, that would be cool! But instead, she happens to have married into a family with that very recipe! Not sure exactly where, or how Grandma Harriett (our bear sweater geniuses Mom) acquired this recipe, best not to ask. Rather...enjoy!

So now you've got some secret weapons for this year's cookie season. Or DO YOU?  Maybe, just maybe, the ECG has done a little sprinkle shopping lately. Check out all of the new sexy sprinkles and sanding sugars HERE  And we've got loads of new Cookie Stencils and Cookie Cutters just in time for the Holidays!
