Christmas Winter Wonderland 2011
Inspiration for my Winter Wonderland Christmas in a colour palette of antique pink, pale aqua, jade and white. Motifs of reindeer, vintage rose floral prints and an abundance of Winter birds are brought to life with glitter.
Candied Light Catchers Clever and quick to make, candied light catchers brighten a windowsill. Place metal cookie cutters on a foil-lined baking sheet. Spoon crushed hard candies into each cookie cutter, mixing colors if desired, to form a 1/4-inch-thick layer. Bake 4 minutes at 325 degrees F; remove from oven. Let cool.
Winter Wonderland: If you are disappointed by the short life of baked gingerbread houses, build the appealing abodes from foam-core board. A light coat of royal icing supplies a base for architectural details composed of cake-decorating sugar shapes, frosting ribbons, and edible pearls. Overlap candy wafers to add shinglelike dimension to the roof.
