Staching Through The Snow (Santa Face From Fancy Square)

I saw this tee shirt in Target all the way back in November and I could not wait for an excuse to cookie it!

I wanted to come up with a Santa face cookie to go along with it, but I wanted a cookie that focused on his facial hair. I thought, and thought, and turned all sorts of cutters in every direction until I saw it. Then, of course, I couldn’t unsee it.

The Fancy Square.

This cookie has single handedly replaced any cookie I may have thought was my favorite as my new favorite.

To make it, you’ll need:

  • Red icing in a very thin, spreadable consistency
  • Flesh colored icing in a one step (20 second) consistency
  • White icing in piping and flood consistencies
  • Red airbrush color (or Wilton’s Color Mist in red)

  • Cut your dough with the fancy square and turn it on its side so it looks like a quatrefoil square. Bake your cookies and let them cool.
  • Using the very thin red icing and a spatula, paint a portion of the cookie (toward the top third of the cookie) with a light layer of red.Wait for this to dry completely.
  • Using the flesh colored icing, pipe and immediately fill an oval shape. Use a toothpick to pop any air bubbles to prevent cratering.
  • Using white piping icing and a PME 1.5, Ateco 1, or Wilton 2 tip, outline the rest of the cookie, and outline a mouth shape (dipping down in the middle of the top line to outline the bottom of the mustache).
  • Begin flooding with white flood icing. Flood the bottom section first and allow it to dry to create dimension between the beard and the mustache.
  • Flood the mustache and allow the whole cookie to dry completely.

Fill an airbrush with red airbrush color (or use Wilton’s Color Mist in Red). Lightly spray a red highlight along the top of the “nose”.

Use the white piping icing again to add details to the beard and mustache.

When I showed this cookie to my friend Melissa at Simply Sweets by Honeybee, I was able to talk her into making a Santa Stache cookie too! So now head over to her blog to see what she came up with. I always love her cookies and this one does not disappoint!

Have you made a Santa Stache? Go ahead and show it off! Post it to my Facebook page. I can’t wait to see!
