Hi everyone! Today is party day!!! Woohoo, I may be more excited than the Birthday Boy, LOL! Everything is ready for tonight, phewww! *sigh*
The next thing I'm going to share with you today is how I made my sugar cookies. Guess what... this was my first time ever, and am so happy with the results! If I can do it, you can too!
The first thing I did was look up a recipe for making sugar cookies. HERE is the on I finally used.
Next I made Royal Icing. HERE is the recipe I used for it.
I made my icing consistency a bit on the runnier side. I wanted to pipe and flood the cookie right away. I was a little impatient, hehe!
I then outlined the outside of the cookie and the outside of the mask and went straight into flooding them.
I first did all the white and then all my red cookies. Once those were piped and flooded I then went back and flooded the centre faces with yellow icing. You need to wait at least 20 minutes before adding another colour.
I finished them off by pipping on their eyes and eye brows. Some of the black icing I used for the eyes ended up bleeding into the yellow icing... I probably was too impatient, and didn't wait for the face to harden up enough or my black icing was too runny! Either way they still taste the same but look like they have on runny mascara, LOL! ;)
I then let these little Ninjas rest overnight. The next day I wrapped them individually and placed one in each treat bag for Tomas' guests!
Have a great day and thanks for coming by,
Happy Crafting :)
