Back when Wilton sent me the supplies for my awesome (if I do say so myself) LEGO Batman party, they also sent three colors of their Cookie Icing (Batman colors - white, yellow, and black) and a set of extra fine-tipped Food Writers. We baked up a stack of sugar cookies, eager to decorate.
The first thing Trevor and I did was taste the Cookie Icing. No sense ruining a big stack of cookies if the icing tastes bad. Fortunately, it tastes good. A little too good, in fact, since I really should be eating fewer cookies.
I followed the directions to gently heat the icing in the microwave and then we started decorating.
The icing was quite a bit thinner than I expected. I thought we'd be able to draw designs, but this was far too thin for that. It was perfect flooding texture though. It did thicken up a tiny bit over time, but still not to what I'd expected. No matter. There are tons of fun things you can do with this icing, particularly when you use a toothpick to drag the colors together.
It is really easy to get beautiful designs. No matter how you drag the toothpick, the results are really nice.
To make a zebra cookie, I flooded the whole cookie with white, let it set for about 2 minutes, then added some black stripes by squeezing the bottle over the cookie as I moved my hand back and forth. When it dried completely, I was able to break the extra icing off the edges, leaving this:
Thanks to Wilton for the fun goodies! We'll definitely be using both the Cookie Icing and the Food Writers again.
