Cookie Decorating Ideas

Decorating cookies can be so much fun to do with you family and friends! I wanted to share some decorating techniques with you, starting with an easy yet impressive look.

First- outline the cookie and fill it in with your desired color (here I did red). Then immediately make horizontal lines with a different color.

While the icing is still wet, drag a toothpick vertically across the cookie. Work quickly! In the pattern above I alternated the direction I was dragging the toothpick. For example, the first stroke I dragged the toothpick from bottom to top. The next stroke I dragged the toothpick top to bottom, ect.

Once your cookie is dry you can add another color to the bottom of the mitten. Happy Decorating!
