Ok, so I got a good idea for a 'cookie dummy' to practice on so I dont have to bake up a bunch of cookies to practice decorating on (Thanks, Lalana ).... Anyone know of a good substitute for royal icing that I can practice with? Something of the same consistency that will dry hard?
LOL...here is my moms icing too...guess I should have included that with the dummy dough recipe!!
simple practice icing
1 cup of shortening
3 to 4 cups of powdered sugar
water (to reach a smooth consistency).
storable at room temperature and will not spoil since it does not contain any perishable ingredients.
Its NASTY tasting, therefore dont eat it!!
well, I don't know what you're practicing with and if you are eating it, but I play with my daughter's glue like its icing and fill in the middle. But that's just goofing off.
Oh dessertdiva! You are my hero!!!
this helps soooo much
I like practing making royal icing. I would practice decorating on 4 cookies at a time. The more you practice, the better you get.
Then, I gave my cookies to family and freinds, to get feed back. They loved it.
