Kristen is hosting a retreat for non-profit leaders this weekend and I made some cookies.

What you will notice about these cookies is that World Geography is not my strong suit.

I started with this fun globe cookie cutter from SemiSweet Mike. If you love decorating cookies, I hope you know Mike. His work is amazing.

I love making flowers ahead of time. They can dry and then get placed on the cookies later. Here I make toothpick roses using a 101s tip and some swirly roses using a small closed star tip. While I was at it, I made some leaves, too. Leave all of these to dry at room temperature for a day or two.

To make World Changer Globe cookies, you'll need:
Make the flowers and leaves using the instructions for toothpick roses and then making a small swirl for the circle roses with the star tip. Leave the flowers to dry on waxed paper.

Use #2 tips to outline the sections of the globe in green and blue.

Reserving some of the piping consistency icing, thin the icings with water, a bit at a time, stirring with a silicone spatula, until it is the consistency of a thick syrup. You'll want to drop a "ribbon" of icing back into the bowl and have it disappear in a count of "one thousand one, one thousand two." Four is too thick, one is too thin. Count of 2-3 is good.

Cover with a damp dishcloth and let sit for several minutes. Stir gently with a silicone spatula to pop and large air bubbles that have formed. Pour into squeeze bottles.

Pour into a squeeze bottle and flood the outline, using a toothpick to guide to edges and pop large air bubbles.

Use a #3 tip to pipe the top of the globe stand and outline the base.

Flood the outline with thinned icing as stated above.

Let the cookies dry uncovered 6-8 hours, or overnight.

Once dry, use a food coloring pen to add the wording.

Use piping consistency icing to attach flowers and leaves.
