Piping letters on cookies scares the heck out of me. I avoid doing it, if I can, but sometimes it must be done.
I suppose the more I attempt frosting words, the better I get. Practice makes perfect-ish! But really, I think all of my lettering looks the same, so once and a while it’s nice to do a different font. That is when I grab my stamps, cheater style.
I was asked to make baptism cookies last month, some frosted with the letter “E”. Lo and behold, the clearance section held the perfect script to do so! Here’s how I did it, in case you’d like to give it a go.
I frosted the base of the cookies and let them dry over night. The next day, I colored the rubber stamp with my trusty food writer. I chose yellow, thinking it would be the least conspicuous to frost over.
So you should know that not all of them came out perfectly. I pushed a little too hard on this blue one and the frosting stuck to the stamp, while the pink one shows it wasn’t quite level. No worries. Just wing it in the next step to cover up those boo-boos!
Keep your eyes peeled in the stamp isle. You never know what you’ll find there to use on a cookie, of all places.
