Christmas Cookies

I took off work this past Friday to get alot of things done before we headed to Waco for a weekend full of fun! One of the things on my to do list was to get my cookies decorated!!! I love making and decorating cookies but it so much work to get the icing made, colored and bagged but once you do it is a alot of fun!!! This was my first set of Christmas cookies and I think they turned out really cute and the cookie was so soft and yummy! I personalized two of the Santa hats for my parents!!!

I used the Wilton decorating gel in the tube and it worked great to write the names but the only problem with that is that it does not dry. It gets tacky but does not dry where you can put it in a bag. Do you have any writing tips? I don't like to use Royal Icing because my writing never turns out very good? What do you use?

Has anyone ever used the Wilton piping gel for names? Is there anything you can put over it to make it hard where you can put it in a cute bag and tie a ribbon?

pretty cookies. I have no tips on writing names since I've never done that before.
