I usually use the Wilton Colorflow recipe to decorate the cookies, but today I decided to try out just how hard the royal icing recipe will dry out. It limited my creativity since royal icing is stiffer and dries out faster, and I had to use a spatula to spread it out. However, it was the perfect recipe to secure the popsicle sticks that I used.
Anyway, I had a lot of left over royal icing. It was the perfect time for me to practice piping ribbon rosettes. I learned it from reading SweetSugarBelle's tutorial. I took out my newly bought flower nail and started piping. Unfortunately, I really suck at it. But in my defense, it was my first time to try it. I believe practice makes perfect, so I should still be able to improve.
I'll keep you posted about my royal icing ribbon rosettes progress!
