First of all, Happy Valentine’s Day! (a couple days early) We don’t make a huge deal out of Valentine’s Day, but it’s always fun to celebrate with cards and some sweet treats 🙂
I’m trying to practice my royal icing skills, and this time, I looked to Valentine’s Day as an excuse to make some cookies! I’ve gotten better at making designs on the cookies, and love all the creative ways that you can decorate. One thing that I’m working on is making sure the icing is thin enough. The icing I used to outline the cookies wasn’t as thin as it should have been, and that made it more difficult to use. Next time I’ll know to add more water. I did the outlining and filling early in the afternoon, and in the evening it was dry enough for me to do the designs. It was my first time writing on the cookies, and I think it went pretty well for my first time! I’m excited about my next opportunity to decorate and hope that I will continue to get better!
I’m going to link to my previous posts for recipes and decorating tips:
