Decorating cookies is always so much fun and Friday’s class was no exception.
“I could do this all day everyday” was one students comment!
The cookies that we decorated were all inspired by summer so first up was a pair of flip flops – there are so many possibilities with these, but as this was the first cookie everyone was to decorate I kept the decoration as simple as possible.
Any one for ice cream? This was a big hit, contrary to normal advice the trick here is not to knead the sugarpaste and to pull the paste apart to create a rough texture and to use this to create the ice cream.
By the time we moved on to decorating the swimming costume cookies everyone was feeling a lot more confident and a lot more experimental. Most people had a go using one of my stencils and I hope you agree that our afternoon as swimsuit designers was well spent.
