Strawberry Cookie Direction
Bake and cool your strawberry cutout cookies, we recommend using this delicious no-spread sugar cookie recipe.
Flood the body of your strawberry cookie with red icing.
Thin and color your second bowl of royal icing with Glowing Green gel.
While the red icing is still wet, use Glowing Green royal icing that is the same consistency as your red icing and dot on your berry seed.
Using a scribe or toothpick, gently pull the green icing down to make the seed shape.
After the red icing has dried for about 2 minutes, use stiff Glowing Green royal icing to pipe on the leaves using a leaf tip.
Blueberry Cookie Direction
Thin and color one bowl of royal icing colored with Storm Blue gel food color. Let the icing sit for 2 hours to develop into a deep blue.
Flood your round blueberries and let dry for 5 minutes.
With stiff black royal icing and a writing tip, pipe a small star shape off center of the blueberry to be the "crown".
Let all cookies dry 24 hours before packaging in berry crates.
