In the Watermelon Patch 

I am so in love with Sweetsticks Paint. Suddenly your cookie turns into an artists canvas and those creative juices start to flow. In this case, it’s the watermelon juice that’s flowing! Today I’m going to teach you how to make these fun Watermelon Patch cookies.

Supplies:

Edible Art Decrative Paint: Watermelon Pink, Green, and Black 

Wilton Cake Decorating Supplies: 4 #2 or #3 round decorating tips, 4 disposable bags, 4 decorator couplers, 4 condiment bottles (can find at supermarket in generic brands), red, green and copper food coloring gel.

Watermelon Pink petal dust

Small round cookie cutter and Pizza cutter.

Plaque cookie cutter

#6 Flat brush and #000 Liner Brush
Instructions:

​Using my sugar cookie dough, roll out and cut out 12 plaque cookies. Using a small circle cutter, cut out six circles. Take pizza cutter and cut into halves. Place on cookie sheet and bake. Be sure to bake the smaller cookies separate from the larger ones.

Prepare my meringue icing as given in the instructions. Divide it into four bowls and mix colors into two of them. You should have white, red, blush 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.

You won’t need as much copper icing and won’t need to thin any of it. For step by step instructions, simply watch the tutorials below.

Happy Cookie Making!
