Ideally, you want two types of icing consistency to decorate cookies with royal icing. One part of the icing need to be thicker to make the edges of the cookie and to keep the other thinner icing on the cookie. You can decorate plain cookies to suit any special or non special occasion with decorations that can run from super-simple to as fancy as you want to be. To get started, here are some simple techniques for decorating cookies, including tips on making and working with frosting and icing. Once you learn the basics, you can keep practicing to take your skills to any level you wish.
Note: Make sure your cookies are completely cooled so the frosting or icing will stick to the cookie and set up properly, otherwise a warm cookie will melt the decoration right off. It’s often easier to bake cookies on one day and decorate the next.
