I love birds, bird houses and the whole lot. Add watermelon and we have the sweetest bird residence ever. I’m afraid the birds won’t ever get a chance to enjoy it. It’s simply too delicious. First, let’s go through the needed supplies. If you have followed the last couple of tutorials, you are aware that the colors and instructions are pretty much repeated.
Wilton Cake Decorating Supplies: 3 #2 or #3 round decorating tips, 3 disposable bags, 3 decorator couplers, 3 condiment bottles (can find at supermarket in generic brands), red food coloring gel and green food coloring gel.
Large birdhouse cookie cutter
#6 Flat brush and #000 Liner Brush
Prepare my meringue icing as given in the instructions. Divide it into three bowls and mix colors into two of them. You should have white, red and green icing. Add 2-3 heaping tablespoons to each disposable bag with coupler and tip already in place. Then take remaining icing and water down each bowl one Tablespoon of water at a time, mixing with a fork until you reach the desired consistency. You know it is right when the icing will naturally fall slowly to a flat point. Be careful to not thin it too much. It still needs to be a bit thick or it will run every where and won’t dry flat. Pour icing into condiment bottles and your ready to go. Enjoy!
