- white piping consistency icing (I used a Wilton #4 tip but this will vary depending on the size of your cookie)
- 20 second icing in the colors of your choice (I used light pink, light yellow, light green, light blue and light purple)
Begin by outlining your cookie. I used a Wilton #4 tip to make thick lines that would resemble grout. If you are decorating a smaller cookie choose whatever tip you feel will give you this "grout" look. I first started with a #3 tip but it wasn't giving me the look I was going for.
Next, pipe random lines on the cookie to give the look of mosaic tiles. Use a boo-boo stick or toothpick to tap down any peaks or imperfections.
Let the outline dry for several minutes before flooding. I let mine dry for about 15-20 minutes. Depending on how many cookies you are making the first cookie should be ready to flood as soon as you finish piping your last cookie.
Flood sections of the cookie that are not touching. This will allow your cookie to have more visible "grout" lines.
I let the flooded sections dry for about 20-30 minutes before flooding the next sections.
Depending on the size of your cookie and the number of sections you made you will flood in several phases. Let each phase dry for at least 20-30 minutes and repeat until you have flooded all the sections.
Let the cookies dry completely overnight. This is what the final cookie will look like. As you can see if a thinner line was made even less of the "grout" lines would be showing.
FYI...my husband came to the computer to see what I was working on and he said "oh stained glass cookies, those are nice". My head just hit my forehead. Do they look like stained glass? I guess they could be either but stained glass is see through. Thanks babe. I'll probably be thinking about this for days. LOL!
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial on mosaic cross cookies. Have a great week everyone. Happy Spring!!!
