This week I made some Halloween-themed cookies. While I was at the store a couple weeks ago, I spotted some black and orange decorating gel. I purchased it on a whim. This was the first time I used the gel, and I am so happy with how my cookies turned out:
Here's my new cookie decorating tip: outline your cookies! Outlining the cookies with the gel really helped define their shape. Compare the outlined cookies with the ones that aren't outlined, and you can see a distinction. The outlined cookies really stand out. It was also great for writing words on the cookies. I love the little kitty that says "EEK!"
From now on, I will always use decorating gel when I make my sugar cookies.
Special thanks to Bertha and Bambi for helping me decorate!
