How to Decorate your Cookies

Once you have your baked cookies, there are endless ways to decorate your cookies. Let your imagination fly!!!

For shiny smooth decorating (see the picture below), you can use COLOR FLOW. Check the Color Flow RECIPE by cliking here, check the Color Flow TECHNIQUE by clicking here.


You can also use the same color flow technique by watering down your Royal Icing recipe. The result will be similar to color flow, just opaque (i.e., not a shiny finish).

You can also use star tip decoration. I use royal icing for cookies because the buttercream doesn't really dry as well and can make the cookie soft. Also, royal icing and color flow work best if you want to wrap the cookie in plastic bags.
