Truck with Tree Tutorial

I hope everyone had a great Christmas. For the first time in years we received a lot of snow in our neck of the woods so it was a nice way to get in the holiday spirit. Seeing as I was either shoveling or decorating cookies in the weeks leading up to the holidays, I have lots of fun upcoming cookie tutorials so get ready! First one up is a pick up truck with a tree. I found this a few months back and knew it would have to be a tutorial. Enjoy!

Here’s what you’ll need:
red 20 second icing
grey 20 second icing
green 20 second icing
white stiff icing
white nonpareils
food marker
#3 tip
#2 tip

First you’ll want to take your food marker and outline the shape of the truck as well as the round shape of the wheels and truck window.

Next, you’ll take your red 20 second icing with a #3 tip and outline and flood the truck. Let that dry for at least 2 hours. Come back with your green 20 second icing and #3 tip and fill in the tree area.

Let that dry overnight. The next day you’ll take your stiff white icing with a #3 tip and draw snow onto the tree. While the icing is still wet, dip your cookie into the nonpareils and the result will be a really cool texture to the cookie!

Lastly fill in the remaining details of the wheels, front and rear bumper and door handle with your grey icing outfitted with a #2 tip. Make sure to use the white icing to fill in the window as well. That’s it! Super easy with adorable results!
