Now that kids are headed back to school, that means you may have a little more time on your hands to get creative. With a few leaf cookie cutters and royal icing mixed with fall colors, you can create a simple fall leaf wreath. Typically we will make two icing consistencies for our cookie sets, an outline and a flood consistency. This time, we made one consistency for both the outline and the flood steps. This is because we added details using a food grade pen instead of our usual practice of piping with royal icing. To achieve the softer fall colors we mixed a small amount of the brown royal icing with the other colors. Enjoy making a fall leaf wreath of cookies for your next get together.

Supplies needed to make a Fall Cookie Wreath:

Steps to make Oak Leaf Cookies:

Outline cookies using all the royal icing colors.
Flood each cookie with the same color royal icing. Allow cookies to dry overnight.
Draw a line from top to bottom and along the main leaf segments.

Add a few more vein lines.

We added extra veining on this brown oak leaf cookie. Do you like more or less veining?

Arrange all the cookies in the shape of a wreath, mixing up the assorted colors. As a final detail, we added a plaque cookie for the center: Happy Fall Y’all.
