I've always been fascinated by the amazing things cookiers do with iced cookies. They are like the canvas of pastry. I used to think that icing cookies was a piece of cake! How wrong was I! Just getting the right consistency and texture can be quite frustrating and it doesn't help that I have clumsy fingers and a short concentration span. I guess, like everything else in life, it just takes lots of practice. And I mean LOTS!

How are these for my half-baked attempts? You don't wanna see those failed ones!!
Looks like icing cookies is so not my thing. All that outlining, flooding and washing up! Well, at least I gave it a go.
A video by my fave cookier Sweetopia to share. I've watched tons of tutorials and this is really fantastic.

I think you did great!! It makes me long for sun, swimming, and the beach. :) Well...most things do, but the cookies are still cute. ;)ReplyDelete
Nutter Butter Bikinis....how unique!! Gotta love this.ReplyDelete
Some baking projects are hard to work with. They look so easy. I think cake pops are hard. I usually just make plain ones.ReplyDelete
great job!! i bake often and it takes a lot of practice.ReplyDelete
I seldom bake,...you know me in the kitchen! I loved these tutorials. I especially liked the "Lacy Cookie" one. She makes it look easy, even cleaning up her little mistakes. That just gave me the feeling I would be covered in icing and licking my fingers constantly. haaha Your cookies look just like the pictures from last week. You did great!ReplyDelete
I wish I could look like the shape that Nutter Butter cookie has. Then I might wear a bikiniReplyDelete
You did a great job icing - love 'em! I haven't tried icing cookies for years ... but I have a distant memory of it being a complete disaster when I did try! The good side of that is that it made me more appreciative of other people's talents :)ReplyDelete
