Cookie Journey ~ Day 4

Today is the last day of our mini cookie journey. Today I decorated cookies while they were still wet. I have done this in the past, but I used a little different technique in the past.
This is really simple to do. The hardest thing to do is to get the 
dots all the same size. In the past when I made these, I used 
a stylus to make the dots. This time I put the icing in 
decorating bags. I think the stylus lets you have much more control,
and I plan to go back to doing it that way.
Here is how I did this.
I outlined and filled in the cookie, just like we did 
in the last couple posts.
I had my bag of yellow icing ready to go. The icing will
dry quickly, so all your colors must be prepared before 
you start. Then, I dropped dots of yellow onto the 
cookie in random spots. The problem is that the 
yellow came out fast. When I used the stylus, I could 
go a little slower. Let them dry overnight.

These would be pretty for spring, or for cookies where you need 
a pop of color to match decor.

Thanks for joining me today.
