Really cute! What did you use for the bear's bow?

Thanks! The bow is just royal icing, I made it seperately and put it on the already decorated cookie afterwards. Not sure these are the best cookies taste-wise with all that yucky royal icing..

Gorgeous as ever! I've never successfully decorated cookies. I don't think I have the patience. Do you use royal icing?


(I should have read the entire thread. My question was answered.)

Thanks, it really isn't as terrible as it looks. I found the key is to use simple patterns and not too many different colors. Did I mention I threw away 40 sorry attempts before I got to these? The other ones were supposed to be striped and looked downright awful!
