Baby Cookies for Carter

Share it!   


Made these cookies a few years ago to celebrate the birth of my nephew Carter.  They are sugar cookies decorated with flood royal icing.

    May I know how you achieve high flooding on your cookies. I mean they’re not like other flat decorated cookies that I see around.

    Ram, the icing recipe and consistency of the recipe is important.

    My icing recipe can be found under the tutorial section – Cookie Decorating Tutorial; General Tips & Butterfly Cookies:

    Cookie Decorating Tutorial; General Tips & Butterfly Cookies.

    The 10 second rule is important as well… It helps determine how thick/thin the icing should be. You can find that in the same tutorial.

    Hope that helps!

    Your frosting has such a beautiful sheen. Is it just the recipe that you refer to in your cookie tutorial or did you do something else?

    Thanks Shirley!
    Yes, that’s the recipe I use in my tutorial; nothing else.

    p.s. Forgot to mention; in this case it’s just probably the flash, but I have heard that using corn syrup adds a little sheen. (a teaspoon per kg of icing sugar). I have yet to really see the difference, but I’m experimenting with it here and there. I’ll write a post if I find a way which makes a real difference.
