I found this icing to be very easy to work with, just make sure you keep it covered with a damp towel. I made brown, orange, and kept some white for the ghosts I made. The brown ended up looking almost like Peanut Butter, but i was afraid to add too much coloring because i didn't want to alter the taste. I outlined my cookies and then thinned down the icing and flooded them, which worked pretty good, but some cookies the outline icing was slightly darker than the flooded part...not sure why, maybe the extra water? This icing was way softer than plain royal icing, which was good for me, because I don't like crunchy stuff. I really only had 1 person who didn't care for it, because she thought it was too hard still, she said she'd rather have some fluffy frosting on sugar cookies.
I'd definately use it again--it made my "official" recipe box!!
