I started with a bowl of the icing that I made yesterday.
I added a little water to make it a better consistency.
I drew a knife through the icing, and counted to 10
to see if it would be 10 seconds until the line disappeared.
It was, so the icing was a good consistency.
This is called 10 Second Icing!
I used an AmeriColor brand Soft Pink. I love this
brand because the color is dropped in by squeezing the
bottle. It is so easy to control.
I put in five drops and mixed.
I filled my bag about 1/3 full with the pink icing.
I outlined the heart cookie. I think I should have outlined
by leaving a little bit of an edge,
so the icing is not on the very edge of the cookie.
I filled in by continuing to go around the design until the
heart was covered, then I moved the cookie back and forth
until all the spots were filled.
Then I did the same thing to several small cookies also.
They are ok. But just ok.
I wouldn't want to give them to anyone!
So therefore, they are not good!
But practice makes perfect, and I will continue to
make some more heart cookies.
