Divide dough in half and flatten into discs; wrap each and refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.
On lightly floured surface, roll out each disc to 1/4-inch (5 mm) thickness. Using 2-1/2-inch (6 cm) round cookie cutter, cut out shapes, re-rolling and cutting scraps. Place, 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart, on parchment paper–lined baking sheets. Freeze until firm, about 15 minutes, or refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until firm to the touch and edges begin to darken, 18 to 22 minutes. Transfer to racks and let cool.
Divide icing into thirds. Tint one-third green and one-third purple; leave remaining third white. Using icing, coat cookies as desired. Using candies and icing, decorate as desired. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 3 days.)
