50 Shades of Purple Marbled Cookies

Wednesday, March 7, 2018

 Today I teamed up with my good friend Marlyn from Montreal Confections in a Purple Collaboration. Marlyn made gorgeous Hexagon Cookie with a regal flare and I made super fun and easy to make Marbled Cookies. Marbling icing truly is one of the most rewarding icing techniques out there, in my opinion, anyway. It's fast, effective and very soothing to watch.

To make the cookie you need:
Tear Drop Shape Cutter Set
Needle Tool
Disposable Piping Bags
Sugar Cookie Recipe
Fresh Lemon Royal Icing
Food Colors - play with different shades of purple, you can add touch of ivory, gray, blue pink, red to achieve different tones.
How to thin royal icing
Extract or no flavor alcohol with high alcohol content(everclear),  60% and more.
Edible Gold Extract
Paint brush
Food Only paint brush
