Decorating Guidelines

Let’s decorate! Let’s flood the cookies! It’s just like filling in a coloring book!

For the Flooding Method, we’ll start by outlining the borders on each cookie.

  • Open the piping bags with just a small hole, using scissors.
  • Outline the X and the O cookies with white icing.
  • Outline the hearts with white to light pink to hot pink icing, connecting the colors.
  • Outline the lips with red icing, with a line in the middle.
  • Set the cookies aside to dry while you mix up icing for flooding the cookies.

For the X and O cookies:

  • Cut a larger hole off the white icing bag.
  • Fill a kraft cup 3/4 of the way high with white icing.
  • Add in about 1 teaspoon water and stir well with a stirrer.
  • Spread the icing up to the borders on the cookies and tap lightly to release any bubbles.
  • While the icing is still wet, pipe dots of pink and red icing. Blend together using a toothpick.

For the Pink Ombre Heart Cookies:

  • In two separate kraft cups, dilute the light pink and hot pink icings, the same way as above.
  • Fill in the hearts in an ombre design, with three separated areas.
  • Tap the cookies or prick any air bubbles with a toothpick.

For the Lips Cookies:

  • Cut a larger hole off the red icing bag, and fill a kraft cup 3/4 of the way high with icing.
  • Add in about 1 teaspoon water + stir well with a stirrer.
  • Spread the icing up to the borders on the cookies + tap lightly to release any air bubbles.
  • Do this on the top half of the lips and on the bottom half.
  • Feel free to make the other lip cookies in light pink or hot pink, using the same technique!
