Lazy Daisy and Lemonade

>> Friday, July 17, 2009

I just did a bunch of cookies for a picnic I'm going to tomorrow. Some of them were these lovely little daisies. I tried two new techniques that I would like to share with you - painting and markers. I floated the white icing on the cookie and when it was completely dry (12 hours or so) I took a drop of food color and just the about 2 drops of water and a brushed around the edge to add the color. It looks a little like watercolor - translucent and not a solid coverage. It worked very well and was very easy. After the food color paint dried (about 10 minutes 0r so) I used food safe markers to make the little black lines. Both of these techniques made the entire process very quick and really easy. PS. You can buy the markers anyplace that sells cake decorating supplies. I hope you will give it a try! - Cindy
