This past weekend I celebrated a birthday.
And since I’ve been wanting to spend a little extra time working on decorating cookies, I thought my birthday might be a good time to gift myself a couple additional decorating tips and a food coloring kit with a little more variety than Red, Blue, Yellow, Green. What I couldn’t gift myself, unfortunately, was a steadier hand. But, I luckily found a couple cookie decorating options that allowed for a little shakiness in the wrist.
I experimented with a couple tutorials I found online. One for marigolds.
And one for brush embroidery. It looked a little easier in the video than it played out in real life. I think the consistency of my icing and the size of my brush may have played a small role in the difficulty.
But I think they still came out looking nice……bright and festive at the very least. So, if you have the same trouble I do when it comes to straight lines…..give flowers a try. No one expects any two to be exactly the same.
If you’re interested, here are the links I used:
Good Luck! Have Fun!!!
