Christmas Hugging Bear Decorated Cookies








Hello! I am really excited to start my Christmas Decorated Cookies for this year. To break the ice, I wanted to make a Christmas version of this previous idea I made a couple months back. I saw online the original idea here and I loved it so much I wanted to make it happen with bears hugging multiple foods and edible objects as I could thing off, but for now, those are the two I have. 

But let´s admire this cute guys a bit more. Aren´t they adorable with their little hats and hugging that royal-icing-candy-cane and just so festive? Ah! I love them!
