I love learning new techniques in cookie decorating.
This is my first attempt to creating the knitted look on a cookie. Of course, I wanted to make it a winter mitten. I love the all white look of the mittens which highlights the details of the knitted mitten.
I hope you try these techniques. I used a tipless bag which allowed for some control. If you want to use a tip, you should use a #2 tip.
Watch how to create the look.
The icing I used is my glossy icing.
How to Make – this recipe will decorate about 15 – 24 cookies
- 2 Cups powdered sugar
- 1 heaping Tablespoon to 2 Tablespoons light corn syrup (depending how thin or thick you want icing)
- 1 heaping Tablespoons to 2 Tablespoons milk (depending how thin or thick you want icing)
- 1 teaspoon extract
Add ingredients and stir with a whisk or use a mixer. If you want the icing thinner, add more milk. If you want icing thicker, add more powdered sugar. Once cookies are decorated they will dry within one hour.
