Now, a few helpful tips before you get started…
-I recommend just 4 products to get started. Product recommendations can be found at www.amazon.com/shop/nibblecookieco
-Always use concentrated gel colors for coloring your icing. I like Americolor (bonus- it’s Amazon Prime!) Grocery store food colors will not get the job done.
-For cookies that keep their shape, it’s necessary to use a dough recipe specifically for decorated cookies. I’ll email you a great recipe after joining the class. My personal favorite recipe is the Chocolate Chip Cut Out Cookie recipe from Semi Sweet Mike.
-I DO recommend making your own royal icing, but I have seen a few students have success with some store bought cookie and decorating icing.
-As a beginner, use a thick flood icing to both outline and flood cookies. This way, you are only mastering one consistency icing at a time.
