My two favorite ways to outline and flood sugar cookies with royal icing.
Use piping consistency royal icing to outline the cookie and 15 second consistency royal icing to flood the cookie.
With this technique the outline is visible on the edge of the cookie.
Use 15 second consistency royal icing to outline and flood the cookie.
This technique creates a smooth edge on the cookie and you only need to make one consistency of royal icing.
Both techniques produce a really beautiful cookie, it’s just a matter of preference as far as how you want your cookies to look when they are done.
Make sure you watch the video to see exactly how I use these two different techniques!
