I’ve talked briefly about flood icing before so i thought i’d show you a step-by-step photo-guide of my latest cookie.
The dragon tattoo cookie slab. These are big cookies, around 30cm!
Colour up thinned royal icing and ‘flood’ inside the piped outline using your 2 or 3 tip nozzle and a piping bag. Flood to within a few millimeters of your outline and then use a toothpick to coax the icing to meet the outline. That avoids the risk of the flood icing escaping over your outline. Leave to dry completely.
Once all the sections have been flooded and dried you can return to add any final piping details or hand-painted elements.
And there you have it, your very own hand baked, hand drawn and hand piped cookie slab!Share on Facebook
