I am quickly becoming a fan of color flow icing and you'll love it too. It's so easy to decorate with and it hardens to perfection. You end up with a nice smooth, shiny texture.
Pre-mix your icing and work quickly. Color flow tends to crust over fairly fast. Keep portions you are not working with covered with a damp cloth. Here's the recipe.
Color Flow Icing
4 Cups of sifted powdered sugar
1 tbl of Color Flow powder by Wilton
1/4 cup of water plus 1/tsp
Bake your shaped cookies accordingly.
Let the color before adding icing.
Outline the shape desired and then fill in by simply piping the icing.
Use a tooth pick to give dimension.
Color flow is a fantastic medium to work with.
Be creative and take your time.
Allow the icing to set over night.
We even tried a few acorns.
I can't wait to give another batch a try.
P.S. My little friend Ansley said my cookies were "good". If she likes them, they must be delicious.
Husband and I are on a low carb diet and at dinner we had a classic BBQ feast to choose from; baked beans, slaw, pork, buns, the works. How did I make this meal as "low carb" as possible? I remade our own slaw and substituted a bun for a low carb wrap.
Low Carb Sweet and Spicy Slaw
Now pile pulled meat (in this case, pork) onto a low carb tortilla wrap. FYI: Whole Wheat does not equal low carb, check carbohydrate grams when buying. Add a scant amount of BBQ sauce if regular or if you find a low carb brand you like. Pile on slaw and wrap. YUM!
I love to cook but only if the meals are healthy, easy, and yummy. .
