I don't have the best photos of this project. I apologize. I have been a little pressed for time.
But, I have complete tutorials already, if you're looking for the step-by-step:

This leaves room for the stick. Always twist the stick gently while you insert it into the cookie.
*Note: Unless you're using really small cookies, do not use lollipop sticks. As a general rule, they are too thin and will pop through the cookie when you try to hold it up. Be sure you have the Treat Sticks instead. (They're thicker.)
Royal Icing recipe for info on making the icing the right consistency for "flooding" the cookies. I also have an Egg-free Icing recipe that you can try, but it does take a little bit longer to dry hard.)
I found that to do these spirals, it helped to lightly touch the tip to the surface of the wet icing... otherwise they lost their round edges, and I had a hard time keeping them as pretty.
