Decorating Cookies


I really want to get more into cookie decorating. It looks so effective, but it is just finding the time to practice! These are some cookies that I did last week. The wee “onsies” are a for a friend who just had a baby boy.




I should have piped in white round the edges to make them look more finished, but I was still quite pleased with the simple look.




The swirl shortbreads were a thank you present. The decorated part is done with royal icing. The design is very basic, but I was quite pleased with the look. They didn’t take long to do and are a bit more special than just plain shortbread. Hopefully over the next little while I will have a bit more time to practice my decorating skills. I start the third Wilton class on Tuesday night, so really looking forward to that!

HI

I ordered it from the US. However, I have made them before by tracing a template and then cutting out with a knife. it was painstaking, but did work

Those cookies look sooo cute! I just finished a baby shower marathon (where it seemed I was attending one every other weekend). I'm done for now, but those would have been perfect.
