Christmas is coming and I keep thinking about delicious desserts and thematic decoration. Why not combine these two passions and, with a simple ingredient, transform the decoration of the candy?
Although you love a more complex presentation, just sprinkle a little icing sugar on top of pies, cakes, brownies and cookies to leave the dessert with that Christmas touch. Doubt? Look how many amazing decorating ideas!
A good gingerbread, cut into sparklers and covered with sugar is a classic! Although I really like the decoration with the traditional royal icing, I confess I loved this more rustic and delicate version 😉
How about giving up the decoration of that most basic cookie? We even have a Christmas recipe here on the site for you to get inspired!
FRESH FRUIT PIE
Who doesn’t love that tart with delicious cream and fruit? Sprinkled sugar only makes these wonders cuter 😉
This is a great idea for those who like more elaborate and modern decorations. How about creating your own stencil on a sheet / acetate? In the caption link you can even find some models ready to download!
OPEN PIE / GALETTES
Let’s agree that this version of galette served warm and decorated with pears and icing sugar is all about Christmas?
CAKE IN PIECES
Can you imagine turning a simple cookie into the main attraction of the table? Just cut it into squares and finish with the sprinkled sugar!
This recipe is not even a Christmas classic, but can you resist these stuffed croissants? This can be a good alternative to serve in the snack of the 25th.
Confectioners’ sugar doesn’t have to be restricted to decorating simple cakes, see? If you want to make a more elaborate cake, with many layers and icing, just finish with fruit and sugar! I’m sure a lot of people will want a piece of that side of the cake 😉
A THOUSAND SHEETS
Last, but not least, if you want to surprise the guests just make a nice thousand leaves. I have already taught a classic recipe here on the website and icing sugar is the perfect finish for this ultra-delicious and delicious dessert!
