Baked cookies(Collection of cut out cookie recipes), you can use any shapes you like, rounds,trees and less complex shapes are really great to use when having kids decorate cookies with this technique.
Using a thin royal icing(about 5 second icing) apply a very thin layer of icing, distributing icing with a brush onto the cookie surface. Let dry completely.
Reason I used a very thin icing for the 1st coat is because I wanted to avoid having 2 thick layers of icing on the cookies.
Using a flood(10 to 15 second icing) icing and a crumbled piece of plastic wrap, apply white icing directly onto the blue layer. Dabbing away, almost as if you were faux painting the wall.
Once you covered the whole cookies, take a toothpick and draw snowflake like lines, stars or such. You will need to wipe the toothpick few times while drawing. Once you made enough stars to cover the whole cookies, you can let the icing dry completely.
Once icing has dried, spray the cookies with pearl spray for added shimmer.
Using outline royal icing consistency, outline with white and flood the cookie with a thin blue icing
Spread and push the icing into the hard to reach areas with a small brush

Wipe the toothpick as needed

Every Sunday, at lunch my parents would serve us apple carrot salad. Sometime I’d help to make it. This tradition stuck on me and I’ve been making it for myself (my hubby is not so much into carrots) even after I moved out from my parents house. It is a healthy habit that I’m glad…
