Printable Snowman Cookie Decorating Templates and Royal Icing Transfer Sheets
After the winter we’ve had, I think it’s a pretty safe bet that almost I hope everyone (or at least everyone in my little corner of the world) is pretty much over snow. In fact, I was almost afraid to bring it up. But these snowman cookies are so cute, you might just forget what a pain real winter can be.
Today, I’m sharing seven free printable snowman templates and royal icing transfer sheets, usable with the cutters pictured below.
Before I go over the cutters and designs, I want to share a quick overview of how my printable templates work. It’s easier than you might think, and adaptable to many decorating styles.
First, print out the free templates, then cut into sections. I usually give specific cutting instructions in more detailed tutorial posts, but if you are unsure of where to cut, leave a comment below and I’ll help you out.
Once they’re cut, place the sections on the cookie one at a time and use a food safe marker to “map out” the design. You will be left with guidelines to follow as you pipe, rather than trying to “wing it.”
In addition to design templates, the printables also include royal icing transfer sheets.
I’ve always liked icing transfers for decorating, but in the last two years I’ve come to love them even more.
First of all, transfers are a great way to use up leftover icing. They also significantly reduce the chance of icing craters, bleeding, and more!
But more about that later. I’m anxious to get to the best part, the actual cookie designs!
The first two cutters are my 2017 Halloween Collection skull and the basket from my newly released Easter collection.
The next two cookies were made with my “eyeball” cutter, another Halloween 2017 design, and a simple oval.
I used my favorite oval cutter, but this is easily adapted to the Sweet Sugarbelle Nested Oval Set or any other similar shape.
Next is the ornament snowman, one sized to fit the larger cutter included in ShapeShifters 2, (available April 2018) and the smaller version from my 2017 Christmas Collection.
And finally, my favorite, a fun spin on the paisley cutter from the original Shape Shifters Set!
I liked him so much, I had to do step-by-step tutorial. To check it out, click here.
The designs are detailed enough to stand alone, but also make a beautiful collection. So, the next time a snow day has you down, make the best of it and celebrate with cookies! It will warm your house, and your heart.
