Cherry Blossom Cookies


I had some extra royal icing from the Hello Kitty cookies and used it to decorate cherry blossom cookies.


Here are the steps I took to make them.

Step 1: Bake sugar cookies.  These are vanilla flavored.  The first batch I made were almond flavored. Tip: Avoid baking and decorating cookies in humid weather. It takes a long time to dry.

Step 2: Prepare materials for making icing colors.

White

Brown

Pink

I used Wilton brown and pink coloring gels.


Step 3: Ice cookies (make sure they are cooled) with white royal icing.I used the Sweet Sugarbelle royal icing recipe.

Step 4 and 5: Decorate white iced cookies with your unique designs.

I choose to draw cherry blossom branches and experimented with colored sugar.
