Conversation Heart Cookies

Before making these conversation heart cookies, I realized that I hadn’t actually eaten a conversation heart candy since elementary school when we used to tape construction paper “mailboxes” to our desks to be filled with Valentine’s Day cards and sweets. This project was a trip down memory lane!coversation-heart3For this project you will need:
As you’ll see in the video below, I decided to dust the cookies with some confectioners sugar to mimic the powdery surface of the conversation heart candies.

  1. Amber – do you have any videos on tinting royal icing? It always seems to take so much gel paste to get color! Even when I use Americolor or Wilton. Two of the most difficult ones are true red (like an apple) and true black (like wheels on cars or bats for Halloween). Any suggestions?
    Thanks, and I love your videos!

    • Thanks, Patty! Have you tried letting the icing sit for several hours after making the dark colors? When making black, for example, I make a very dark gray and allow it to sit for a while and it’s black by the time I’m ready to use it. Same with red, but I also add a little bit of black, burgundy or brown to red to deepen the shade.

  2. Thanks for sharing!!! Amber, please where can I find the scribe tool you use when decorating your cookies and in your classes?? The one from PME is too short. Thanks so much!

  3. You are amazing!!!! Is like you were reading my mind, I was planing to make conversation hearts cookies for my girls school friends on valentine’s day. Love the idea of dust them with powder sugar they looks just like the candies. Thank you so much for sharing. Love your work!
