The kit is too fun to pass up. But here are a few words of advice: The dough is somewhat sticky. Mix in a few tablespoons of flour until it reaches perfect cookie dough consistency. Also, don't forget to flour the work surface, the top of the dough, and your rolling pin before attempting to roll out the dough.
The kit comes with red and green frosting, but the same sugar-to-butter-to-milk ratio can be used to create a white frosting. I piped around the border of each cookie, filled it with icing, and used a mini offset spatula to smooth out the icing. On the green cookies, I used the narrow side of the spatula to create lines in the icing to make them look like knitted sweaters. Many of the decorations are extremely easy to pipe on.
What truly makes these cookies shine are the small details. Don't forget to pipe on cuffs and necklines. The sprinkles can be used in so many different ways. Disinfect a pair of tweezers, then use them to apply the sprinkles oh so carefully. Even if you don't buy the kit, all of the sprinkles can be purchased online! Lastly, add some shimmer to a few sweaters with the help of edible gold dust and clear sparkle flakes.
