Just doing some practicing this weekend. Now that I've got the icing right, I can't figure out how to drag a toothpick and get a good design. Is there any hints out there?

Once you have filled the cookie with icing, place a contrasting colour in run icing also.
YOu can add the contrasting colour in a line or dots. Then you just simply run the toothpick through the contrasting colour.
If you place a dot and run the toothpick through you get little love hearts.
Just practice and you will come up with all beautiful effects.
( I hope I make sense.)

That's what I was trying to do, maybe I just didn't make my lines big enough and the icing wasn't dragging enough. I'll keep practicing.

I have found the "spiderweb" design easiest so maybe start there. Flood, big open circle with a few smaller open circles inside. Then start with toothpick in center and drag out to edge in several spots. Good for Halloween too! Good luck.

That's how I make my tye dye tee shirt cookies! Just flood the cookie, pipe the gel color in circles and drag from the inside out. Very easy! icon_biggrin.gif
