How would you ice Fall leave cookies?

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
I have 50 fall leaf cookies to ice and I am unsure how to get the multi colors without first piping a border.I don't want a border.Can I flat dip them? just put 3-4 colors ontop and swirl it around.Any ideas??

When I make mine, I pipe a border of my main color and then use icing that is just a bit thinner to fill in with the colors I want. The thinner icing spreads well and you can't really tell there is a border when it's dry--and no icing spills over the edge.
Good luck.

What kind of multi-colors are you trying to get?

I just started making iced cookies tonight, so take this for what it's worth, but I simply used the thinned icing, did a quick border, and filled in. For the cookies that had other colors 'pulled' into them, I put the other color in the middle, and used a toothpick to pull it through the first color. Not sure if this helps at all, but hey, I had fun doing leaves tonight. They're in my photos. icon_smile.gif

You could also use RBC instead, and then just dab on some food color all over- will have a more spotted and mottled effect- sorry- don't have any to share- but that's the plan in my head for the leaves I plan to do. icon_smile.gif Doni and kneadacookie- great job!!

you could just go the lazy route (like me lol) and cover them in MMF and paint em' they're very easy just go back and forth with one color around the edge of the cookies and then keep layering the colors as you move toward the center of the cookie overlapping each color slightly onto the one before very easy and surprisingly quick and you don't have to wait so long for them to dry before bagging them up ( I'm so terrible at plan ahead projects lol)

What did you use to paint with? Is it just straight gel color or did you dilute it with something? Your cookies look great!
