Mickey Mouse Snowman:
-Follow the outline off of the picture of the cookies provided.
-Outline the entire cookie white except for Mickey’s ears. Allow the outlining to dry for 30 seconds before filling in the cookies in with the white thinner icing. * Allow the filling also to dry for about 30 seconds. ( *Add in 1-3 tablespoons of water to thin the icing out. you want it to be thick and runny, not soup like. If it is soup like add in a very small amount of powder sugar to thicken it.)
-Outline Mickey’s ears in the black icing. After 30 seconds fill in the ears with the black thinner icing. * Allow this filling to dry for another 30 seconds. ( *Add in 1-3 tablespoons of water to thin the icing out. you want it to be thick and runny, not soup like. If it is soup like add in a very small amount of powder sugar to thicken it.)
-Refer to the pictures for the examples of the artwork on the Mickey Mouse Snowmen.
-Make two black dots for the eyes and and additional one for the nose. (The shape of an egg for the eyes and an egg laying on its side for the mouth.)
-Still using the black thick icing on some of the snowmen draw a mouth.
-Using the green icing, outline and fill in the scarf with the same thick icing . The scarf will be between the top of the snowman and the second large snowball.
-One black dot will be placed in the center of the snowman and two other small black dots will connect to the first black dot and will look like Mickeys ears.
-Outline and fill in a total of three “Mickeys head and ears” for the coal buttons on the snowman.
-Set the cookies aside for 5-10 hours to dry.
