What is a Christmas Frosting Board?

Christmas Dessert Board Tips

Although this is a fairly simple recipe, here are some tips for creating a Christmas frosting board:

  • You can use canned frosting ro make your favorite buttercream frosting recipe.
  • Buttercream frosting has oil in it that could stain a wooden cutting board.  You can lay down a piece of parchment paper to absorb the oil.
  • Choose your favorite dippers for your frosting board.  You don't need to use every idea listed above.
  • Set extra dippers aside to refill.  You can also add more icing as the party goes on.
  • I made a cut gnome, but you can make a different shape.
