3 Simple Ways To Spice Up Your Holiday Baking
One of our favorite things about Christmas is the COOKIES! They check all the boxes – festive, fun to make, and delicious to eat. We’ve collected three videos to help you easily add variety to your holiday baking repertoire with IOD.
#1 Sugar Cookie Decorating Like a Pro with IOD Moulds

#2 Stamped Cookies – How to Use IOD Stamps on Royal Icing and Fondant
Did you know that IOD stamps can double as cookie stamps (just don’t use the same set for DIY home decor)! Here’s a simple way to make “fancy” cookies for the holidays, weddings, baby showers, and all your other special occasions. Using royal icing or fondant, shaped sugar cookies, and oil-based food coloring, you can easily get detailed cookie designs and cookie decorations. This technique works well for professional bakers as well as home bakers. It’s so easy that anyone can make these beautiful cookies. The inspiration for the Crockery Stamp cookie was from Brooklyn-based IOD stockist Milton’s Daughter. You can check out her video, which includes how to make the royal icing here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GQPwj6aL10Q
Iron Orchid Designs products used in this tutorial are the Crockery Stamp and Seashore Stamp. To learn how to condition your stamps for first use, check out this IOD Stamping Basics video: https://youtu.be/ZvlybVAl3JQ
