    Hi Marian – first of all thanks so much for these videos! I took my very first stab at Royal Icing for Christmas and the icing was the perfect consistency. People thought I had been making these decorated cookies for years. 🙂 I have a timing question – I only had #2 tips so I would outline and flood the cookie using a #2. This worked fine, but it obviously takes a long time to flood a larger cookie with this smaller tip so on the marbled ones, the icing was already starting to dry a bit. So do you switch your tips between outlining and flooding or do you have multiple bags with different tips? #2 tips weren’t an issue on the cookies that weren’t marbled since the first color had to dry anyway. Thanks again! (I’m also going to post a tip on the sugar cookie recipe for those of us living in the tropics.)

    Thanks for your comments, @ Laura and @ Charlene Glover!

    Sorry I’m only getting to this now, @ Emily! I’m going through a pile of emails still from Christmas (!) and comment notifications are part of those emails…
    Okay, so for medium sized cookies where I outline with a 2, I don’t switch the tips, I just press the piping bag a lot harder to squeeze the icing out faster. For cookies that are so large that one side would start to dry while I’m still flooding (with a #2 tip), I use a #3 or 4 tip for both outlining and flooding. If it’s such a large cookie, I don’t really need a fine tip like #2 to outline (because the cookie is larger). Hopefully that helps you!

    Love your marbling, I can’t wait to try it this season. Can you stack your cookies without the royal icing smudging? I need to travel across the country with my cookies this year. I need a durable icing!

    After you put the frosting on. Do you bake? Or do you bake first, then cool, then frost?

    If that isn’t your style, consider jeans, a polo shirt and a nice clean http://www.doudoudsmarques.com pair of tennis shoes. Women can wear similar outfits.

    […] Step 5: – Marbling – Drag a toothpick through the wet icing, starting from the outside and working your way to the center of the cookie. If you think of your cookie as a clock, I dragged the icing at 12 o'clock, 3 o'clock, 6 o'clock and 9 o'clock, so that the circle was split into four quarters, and then split those sections in half. If you're particular about every line being perfectly white, with no little dabs of color, wipe your toothpick between each drag. Working quickly is important as the royal icing starts to set almost immediately. For a video on how to marble cookies, click here. […]
