PRIMER FOR PERFECT CUT-OUT COOKIES AND ROYAL ICING
Decorating stunning cut-out sugar cookies with royal icing starts with the techniques of beautifully baked cookies with crisp edges and creating different consistencies of royal icing for flooding, outlining, and writing. The talented cookie artist Caroline Stamp provides all the basics for success starting with mixing, rolling out, and baking vanilla sugar cookies, and the effects of humidity, desired texture and thickness, along with chill vs. no chill methods. Caroline will make royal icing and discuss coloring, disposable pastry bags with tips, tipless pastry bags, and squeeze bottles, and show the class how to set up their space for decorating with the proper tools and test the royal icing with pastry bags and tips on parchment. Students may take home a sampling of cookies and royal icing.
