How To Thin Royal Icing
- You are probably curious how I made the shape for the Barry, I used a large heart cookie cutter and a pineapple cookie cutter to construct the correct shape. First I cut out the heart and then the pineapple shape, just the upper portion of the cookie(leaves), and using the heart cookie cutter I trimmed the bottom so it would fit snuggly at the top of the heart shape. You need to do this step prior you bake the cookies. Once the cookies bake, they are "glued" together. Some people add little bit of water in the seam, but you really don't have to.
- If you can't find pineapple cutter I used, you can also option for a start cookie cutter. It will work as well.
- In the video tutorial below I demonstrate how to decorate Barry. Hope you like it.
