valentine cookies and some icing color tips!

1 Comment

I’m on a serious sugar cookie kick right now. Thanks to my new double oven I was able to bake 30 cookies in just 8 minutes!

These valentines cookies are pretty simple. I knew I wanted to find a lip cookie cutter, XO and make little valentines. I found the cutest pack of valentines cookie cutters, they were made to be a garland but I just used them as regular cutters. I also bought a pack of square cutters that I used for the valentines (I also have them in circles), I love that you can use them scalloped or with sharp edges.

I thought I would share the icing colors that I use because sometimes its really hard to tell looking at the little tubes or looking at someone else’s pictures. I love using the Wilton gel colors, they are so pretty and come in a lot of colors rather than just your traditional primary colors, don’t bother mixing those to try to get what you want.

Red, pink, purple (this does not look like the color on the top of the bottle, its actually burgundy!). But my best kept secret white it make the icing brighter and if you add vanilla or almond and it tints your icing throw a little white in and then add your color and it will come out brighter and truer.

But gel color is so strong and vibrant try to not get it on your hands because its beastly to get off. See my little smear on my lips down to the right? Booo. Some hot water and scrubbing it will come off.

I hope this helps you pick out the perfect shades for your next batch of cookies!
