  1. Beautiful cookies!
    I’m a beginner and am wondering how you get the soft peak icing and 15 second icing to stay the same shade of each of the colors? Maybe that’s a stupid question?
    Thanks!

    • Thanks, Nancy! That’s a very good question, actually. I’ve never noticed a difference in the colors when thinning down the icing, although it makes sense that it could happen since the colors are being diluted as you add more water. I always start with the same batch of colored icing and split it up to thin it down rather than coloring each consistency separately, but if you’re still having trouble with keeping the colors the same, I’d just add a teeny tiny drop of color to the lighter shade until it matches.
