Have you ever seen beautiful cookies almost too pretty to eat? Then, after being mesmerized by the detail and beauty (and insane amount of work) of the cookies, had that small little thought . . . HOW DID THEY DO THAT????
Royal Icing. Yep. That’s the secret and here’s the skinny on royal icing!
If you have ever worked with Royal Icing you know how difficult it is in many ways! BUT look how beautiful it can be . . . the options are endless.
I found this fabulous post by The sweet adventures of Sugar Belle. If you are at all interested in making your cookies look like this . . .
then you need to see this post! Sweet Sugar Belle is pretty much a professional cookie decorator and has a fabulous site where she shares her secrets. I have not been paid to say that, I am receiving nothing to write this post! My blog is all about my personal journal book and what I want to share with my girls, so, that being said, this is like my virtual bookmark of an invaluable post on Royal Icing!!
In this post you will even find a color chart to mix your colors to a perfect hue, a tip for thinning the icing, a simple solution for an easy pastry bag ~ it is a must see post for anyone interested in Cookie art, or fancy additions to cake decorating.
Thank you Sweet Sugar Belle, you are fabulous and very talented!
