Cookie Planets!

In a recent Instagram Story, I mentioned how much I dislike mixing icing colors. One of the reasons I started painting on royal icing is partially because of the versatility of the medium, but also because I’m pretty lazy when it comes to prepping for a project 😉

And, in a very unscientific study (involving asking my family members to stick their tongues out after eating these cookie planets), I found out that painted icing is less likely to stain your mouth than if the color is mixed into the icing. This set was iced in white and painted with less than one drop of each color, which is probably why the cookies don’t leave a stain behind. If I had mixed the color into the icing, it would have taken much more food coloring to get the same effect. So, next time you have to make a dark color, try this method!

Here’s what you’ll need for this project:
