iced sugar cookies

June 4, 2007 at 1:02 am | Posted in Cookies | 15 Comments

i’ve always admired beautifully decorated sugar cookies with bright colours. they were something i considered almost impossible to do – i am really intimidated by royal icing. i don’t know what prompted me to try them; i wouldn’t say i’ve gotten the consistency right (the piped letters) but i think it’s pretty decent for a first time.

the recipe for the cookies is from here, and the icing was an modification/estimation of the royal icing recipe on the icing sugar packet which i bought from phoon huat. i know i still have a lot of room for improvement in terms of the icing, something i’d gladly practise on.
