Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

Apparently I'm a big air head.  Seriously my head must be up in the clouds somewhere.

First I numbered wrong on my blog giveaway......

Then I did a Sunday Facebook Shout out....ON A SATURDAY...oh yeah that was me....maybe it will up my talk about numbers (just a thought)

And then tonight when my husband was on Staff duty all night.....yeah AGAIN....I was watching a show on the DVR from a few weeks ago and a severe weather alert comes on.

I PANIC....I get all OMG the weathers gonna be bad and I'm home alone with no husband.....UMMM HELLO IT'S A RECORDING FROM WEEKS AGO.

I looked like an idiot, my teenage daughter laughs at me and I just know she is now texting all her friends about my stupidity. Yeah her 15,000 a month text messages are mostly about something stupid I did or about her being mad at some injustice I've done to her.

Yep that's my life around here.....cookies and jokes about mom.

At least the cookies won't make fun of me.

This weekend I got off on a Reindeer kick.  I don't know what came over me but Rudolph was on the brain. I knew when I bought the ornament cutters from Fancy Flours I was going to make many different cookies with them.  If Sweet Sugarbelle has taught me one thing, it's been to think outside the box when it comes to your cookie cutters. I mean seriously have you seen the creativity that girl has?

I wanted to come up with other creative ways to make Rudolph. Not everyone is obsessed with cookie cutters like I am and may not have these ornament cutters.

 So, I wanted to make a few with more common shapes. Some cutters that most cookiers are likely to a heart, gingerbread girl, and a bone that I modified before baking. Then show you how I made them.

These were really so easy to make there isn't a need for a tutorial.....BUT.....For those who like a step by step visual, I'm gonna walk you through the process. After all I needed a good excuse to use the My Memories Suite software that one of my readers will receive in my giveaway.

Here are the steps and a cute use of the Scrapbooking software.

Be sure to let the icing dry a few hours in between steps.


  1. Too cute!! I love having new was to use the basic cookie cutters I have. I don't my Mr. would be happy with me running out and buying a new cookie cutter just for the blog. :) Thanks!

  2. Yeah it's nice to be able to use a cutter for more than one cookie. I've only been making cookies for three months or so and have 8 boxes of cutters. I would buy everyone I saw. I have an obsession with them. But I want to use them in different ways. You could really do so much with a lot of them. The cupcake one is my favorite to play with.

  3. Love love love love fact I'm going to go buy the FF cutters now and its your fault ;-)

  4. I love these! The antlers I think are my favourite part. Great use of your cutters.

  5. Thanks ladies. I had so much fun with these cutters.

    @Callye, I've bought many of cutters from reading your blog....your turn lol. I apologize in advance for any cutters you may purchase. Tell your husband it was my fault and just smile.

  6. Love these cute!
