The cutter I used to make these Santa’s was a hand-me-down from my mom. It was one that we didn’t always use because the small parts always seemed to break off.
Now that I am rolling my cookies a tad thicker, I knew it would hold up well.
This is what I came up with…

I did the first one with an edible food marker on the blank cookie to get my design right. After that they were just free handed.
I love how each one has a little bit different personality!
I actually meant these guys to have a black belt across the belly, but I was too quick to clean (for once) and had thrown out all my black buttercream. Oh well, I like em anyway!

I love these!!! They have to be one of my favorites of yours so far 🙂 Their little faces DO each have a different personality. Great job!!
aww thanks Kendra! they came out better than I thought they would, I really like them too. 🙂
These are really sweet. I’m in awe that you do such wonderful decorating with buttercream.
These are totally awesome! Aren’t hand-me-down cutters the best? I got some from my mom recently that my grandmother used – I can’t wait to try them out!
my mom stopped making cookies years ago and just recently gave me all of her cutters. it’s fun seeing the shapes I grew up with in a whole new way!
