Transcripts

1. How to Decorate Cookies Intro: In this class, I will show you how to make sugar cookies that don't need to be chilled. How to make royal icing outline and flood cookies. Create wet on wet and marble designs. How to get a cheap cookie stem. So holder, make your own cookie trying table and show you how I decorate some cookie designs. I hope that you enjoyed the videos and learn something from them. 2. How to Make Sugar Cookies: She do, do, do, do, do, do. So. We're going to do. 3. How to Make Royal Icing Recipe: To make royal icing, all you need are these ingredients in the mixing bowl. At the powder, sugar and dried egg whites. You can also use moraine powder. Then makes well, afterward, add water and vanilla extract and combined well. The consistency for this recipe is about five seconds. If you want the icing to be thinner, you will need to add drops of water to make it thinner. And if you want to add food coloring, you can add it after you get the icing consistency that you want. 4. Royal Icing Consistency: This is just a short video on how to do different royal icing consistencies. The royal icing recipe I usually use is one cup of powder sugar for every 1 fourth cup of water. I also add one tablespoon of egg white powder. Usually how I do it is I take a chopstick or a stick and draw down the center of the royal icing, then I start counting seconds. So the minute the line closes, that's when I stopped counting. So five to ten seconds royal icing consistency is pretty flooded and tend to 15-second consistency is usually to consistency. I like to use. 5. How to Outline & Flood Cookies: This is how I outlined in flood cookies. First, I outline the cookies with royal icing that has 10 second consistency. Then I fill the cookie in with more royal icing. 6. How to Decorate Wet on Wet Cookies: To decorate wet on wet cookies, I outline and flood the cookies first before the icing dries, I decorate on top of the flooded icing. I use a cookie needle tool to lightly drag the icing across the points that I want a design to appear. Just be careful not to drag too hard because you don't want the cookie needle tool to poke through the icing. 7. How to Decorate Marbled Cookies: Horrible cookies are super easy to degrade. All you need is a bowl of royal icing in runny consistency and food coloring at a couple of drops of food coloring into the royal icing and then use a toothpick to swirl that around. Afterward, the cookie inside and wipe off any excess that's falling off. And that's it. They are beautiful and easy to grade. 8. How to Decorate Watercolor Cookies: Okay. Hi. 9. How to Airbrush Cookies & DIY Cookie Stencil Holder: I was quite thrilled that Dollar Tree cells, such a cool spiral Art Set. Originally, I got it for creating spiral art. But then I wondered, Would it work to hope, to get Santos? To my surprise, it holds cookie stencils. Well, here's a demonstration on how I used it to air pressure a cookie. The bottom piece of the Spiral Arts set is removable, which makes it very convenient to hold a cookie in air pressure it. This is how I usually airbrush cookies. If there are other designs on the cookie stencil, I usually put tape around the design so that I don't accidentally airbrushed that as well. I still can't believe that I can use this spiral art set to haute cookie stencils. There are many cookies then, so holder, that costs more than $10. Some of them cost even more money, like $20 to $70. And this one only costs $1. And if you don't like the colors because it's too colorful, you can always use spray paint and paint it all one color. This spiral Art Set comes in a few colors. I bought another green color one, but there were little steps attached to it, so it doesn't work as well as this purple one. 10. DIY Cookie Turntable: These are the items you will need to make your own DIY cookie turntable, superglue, Lazy Susan, and a acrylic disc. The acrylic disc is actually clear, but I spray painted it. So all you need to do is superglue to edges of the Lazy Susan to the center of the acrylic disc. Afterwards, the 6M cleared that stickers on the corners of the Lazy Susan so it is easier to lift it. 11. How to Decorate Shirt Cookies: Hi. 12. How to Decorate Bear Cookies: So this sequence, this sequence. Okay. 14. How to Decorate Candy Corn Cookies: Yes. This is.
