How fun to bake and decorate Christmas tree cookies.
Here we show you two techniques in decorating.
One is wet-on-wet where you add a top color to the wet icing so it sinks into the cookie icing.
The second is wet on dry, where your second layer of icing goes on top of dried icing so it doesn’t sink in.
Watch the video to see how to create each technique.
These make wonderful gifts or just a show piece at the holiday dessert table.
