I used my favorite sugar cookie recipe (click on it if you want the recipe), piped on the royal icing and made some cute necktie cookies for the celebration. While the base color (in this case, blue or green) was still soft, I piped the white dots or stripes on. The white just ‘sank’ right into the colored tie. This is a great technique if you’re a little short on time (story of my life right now) and don’t have time for your base color to dry overnight before adding an accent.
Can’t wait to meet your little miracles Tiana!
