New Year, New Technique
In the few days between Christmas and New Years Eve, I had a break from orders and I decided to be spontaneous and try something new. I especially loved the cookie cover story of Bon Appetit magazine this year so much that I went out and bought some supplies to try it myself.
I followed my own royal icing recipe and my cookies dried nicely with a good hard sheen as they almost always do (unless it is very humid out).
Technically, this isn’t the first time I have tried a watercolor technique on cookies (see our other watercolor cookies here) … but after trying both, I do prefer using the luster dust mix over using food color gels as watercolor. Overall, I love this idea and will experimenting with it a bit more. I love the idea of having many different options for decorating cookies and this one feels particularly artsy and creative.
So if your medium is cookies, and you are feeling artsy, give this technique a try! It’s the perfect activity for a freezing cold day like today… Then you can eat your sweet results! Happy happy New Year! All good things! Xo Dani
