NYC Cookies

Click here to view the tutorial.

I made these NYC designs by first flooding the cookies in white royal icing and letting them dry completely. Then, I traced the designs onto the cookies using an edible ink marker and piped over the lines with a tip 1 and thinned royal icing in black, white and gray. The black outline was added at the end.

Painting With Luster Dust On Brush Embroidered Flowers (video)

A tutorial on painting brush embroidered flowers using luster dust.

When painting brush embroidery with gold luster dust, make sure to first pipe your flowers in the same color icing as the base coat. Let it dry for an hour or two before applying the gold.
