Decorated cookies – what a treat!
Cookies and biscuits are delicious in there own right but decorating them can make them that extra bit special. Many cookies can be quickly decorated in a couple of minutes but by spending a little more time you can also create cookies that are truly magical and almost too good to eat! Hang them from your Christmas tree or place them in clear cookie bags or decorative boxes to give to friends and family or simply serve with a cuppa for a homemade tea time treat. There is always a reason why you can have fun creating your own little works of cookie art.
Decorating cookies is not just childs play:
“Fundamentally a designer at heart, I find that cookies, like cakes, make an excellent canvas on which to create designs that are both appealing and stylish. There are a number of possible ways to decorate cookies but I must admit to favouring sugarpaste. With sugarpaste you can not only easily introduce colour but also add texture and 3 dimensional elements, to create cookies that will wow all those that see them.
As you probably appreciate, decorating cookies is not only childs play, cookies are all about having fun in your kitchen creating gorgeous tasty treats that everyone will love. When it comes to decorating cookies, there are many possibilities so I hope that I will inspire you not only to copy my designs but to create designs of your own too. Happy baking.” Lindy
