Happy New Year!

1. Make royal icing. Recipes are HERE.

2. Divide the icing into the airtight containers.
And add a desired food coloring to the icing and mix well.

3. Fill a pastry bag with piping icing and also fill a squeeze bottle with flooding icing. (since royal icing dries out very quickly, keep the piping tip with damp paper towel or sponge)

4. Outline a cookie with the piping icing bag.

5. Fill it up with flooding icing.

Happy New Year!
I know it's been already middle of January...
I've been lazy since I came back from Vancouver, Canada to visit my family.^^

As Lunar new year is coming soon (02/03/11), I made Chinese "Fortune" character cookies.
The design is very simple as you see and I used a #4 tip to write the character.

  9. Hi Katie, this cookies are so cute, I wonder how you get the golden and silver royal icing


  10. Hi,ARA

    I used gold edible luster dust powder.
    Simply add little bit of vodka to the powder, and then brush them on the cookie^^
