The cookie icing was wonderful to work with. Loved the creamy texture and easy to work with. I wasn't so sure of the taste at first, kinda like biting into a cookie with a layer of tums (tasted a bit chalky) on the top. Yes, I know the nature of royal. Hmm...thought to myself that's not good. Bagging them really helped, softened them while the cookie and icing flavors melded. Overall, pretty darn good! This is from a die hard Toba Icing fan. The matte finish was just beautiful.
I just made the cookies for the first time over valentines and loved them!!!! Go antonia74!!! her article is great and the cookies taste fantastic. I do not have much of a sweet tooth but i really enjoyed the cookies! The icing was so easy to work with and it gives an amazing finish! thanks Helen!
Your cookies are beautiful! What did you use to make the flowers?
PP, the dogwood flowers are gumpaste.
I too have never liked the taste of royal but when you ice the cookie and let it set and dry, they taste sooooooo yummy together.
MMMMMMM, royal on cookies, that's the best. I love the color on those cookies, great job!

Yes Antonia did a lovely job setting up her tutorial and recipes and these have helped a lot of people. It is always nice to see someone take the time to help others like this, kudos to Antonia!
I agree, your cookies are elegant.
I also agree that it's wonderful to bring attention to Antonia's thoughtfulness in sharing her talent and recipes. She's spent countless hours, no doubt, prefecting this and then very unselvishly offered it to everyone. BRAVO!
Thanks guys! That's very kind of you to start such a lovely post. You all rock!
