“When one has tasted watermelon, he knows what the angels eat!”- Mark Twain
These cookies are so delicious and definitely the sweetest cookies to make. I have included two tutorials showing how to do a simple painted cookie and one with piped beading. This is certain to be the perfect treat while entertaining your guests this summer. Let’s begin with what you will need.
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 round cookie cutter and Pizza cutter
#6 Flat brush and #000 Liner Brush
Using my sugar cookie dough, roll out and cut out 12 large round cookies. Take pizza cutter and cut into halves. Place on cookie sheet and bake.
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 you are ready to decorate.
Be sure to watch both tutorials for further instruction as they are both unique and beautifully different.
