Snowman Cookie How-To
1. Using white icing in a squeeze bottle with a wide tip, outline body. "Flood" the body by making zigzags of icing; fill the space by spreading the icing with a toothpick.

2. Working quickly while icing is wet, add aqua pearl candy eyes, a sliced orange gumdrop nose, halved Champagne-bubble gumdrop buttons, and a candy heart.

3. While icing is wet, sprinkle fine sanding sugar over the white icing. Let set for 10 minutes, and gently shake off excess.

4. Using blue icing in a squeeze bottle with a thin tip, outline and flood hat.

5. While blue icing is wet, add a snowflake candy. Let dry completely, 8 hours or overnight.
