Happy Valentine’s Day, fellow bloggers!
The biggest lesson I’m getting from sugar cookie making is that you can’t rush perfection.
Although I see a lot of room for improvement with these cookies, I am proud that they are 100% made from scratch.
Important lesson: Royal icing needs to be made using exact measurements. Whenever I wing it, the consistency is off. This is the recipe I used: http://littledelightscakes.com/royal-icing-turtles-icing-recipe/
I need to get more decorating tools in order to do more intricate designs. I used condiment squeeze bottles for my cookies, which work great for filing. But next time I’ll use pastry bags and small frosting tips for details.
I keep telling myself that practice makes perfect!
