You know those pencil cookies I showed you on my last post? Well, today I'm gonna show you how I did them and what I learned that I would do differently next time. Remember I'm still fairly new cookie decorating so don't hold me too close to the fire.
Georgeanne's pencil cookies on her blog, LilaLoa. Her's are adorable!!
Yes, I made apples too and some circles to write messages on. The cookie cutter I used was actually a candle that I found at Sur la Table on clearance for $0.49!!
That's why the sides are bumpy and I didn't bother smoothing them out. I used my go to Vanilla Sugar Cookie Recipe from LilaLoa's blog. It's so yummy and bakes beautifully... when you remember to take them out in time. :-\
I followed her steps on outlining them but used a #1 tip which made it a little difficult for me and I think I had my royal icing a bit too thick. Next time I'll use a #2 and thin it just a little more. I did add cocoa to my icing to help achieve the black color and I gotta say I LOVED it! It smelled soooo good!
As always...be blessed, thanks for stopping by and leave some love!
