Valentine Cookies



Color flow icing was something I wanted to try for a long time now. Before making it from scratch, my curiosity led me to my favourite store - Michael's, to my favourite aisle, Wilton. However I ended up buying the Cookie Icing bottles. I did not follow the instructions of microwaving the icing, but used it as is, transferring it to a piping bag. Results were not too bad. Took me some time to get the hang of it, but once I did, armed with a toothpick in one hand and the piping bag in another, there was no stopping me!




For the cookies, I used Alton Brown's recipe which I used to make the Halloween Cookies earlier, using heart shape cutters instead of the pumpkin cutter. To get the step-by-step pictures go here.




Wish you a Happy Valentine's Day!
