Fast forward to today and this bad habit has never left me. Saturday I was going to start working on cookies for my next post but I got caught up cleaning my house. When spring arrives I tend to have more pep in my step and this is when I try to accomplish everything I have been putting off during the fall. I guess that's why they call it spring cleaning. The cookies got pushed to Sunday.
Today I was going to work on them but I decided to film a video about my favorite icing consistencies. I ran into problems with my computer saving the video and I had to edit it all over again. The cookies have gotten pushed aside again. What was supposed to be a quick video has turned into a long ordeal. Yikes!
I guess the great thing about being a blogger is that it's okay if this type of thing happens. I don't have to meet a deadline. So I promise you those cookies will be coming soon but until then please enjoy my ramblings on my favorite icing consistencies. I don't know what it is about videos but as soon as I hit that record button my mouth goes dry and I get all tongue twisted. Also, I had to do some serious editing because it was way over ten minutes so I apologize if it's choppy.
There are many posts out there on icing consistencies. It is important for you to find what works for you. This video is meant to show you what I like to use so that when I do a tutorial you will know what Honeybee's piping & flood consistencies look like.
I mentioned using the spray bottle technique that One Tough Cookie came up with. You can read more about that here.
I also mentioned the Saran Wrap method by Karen from Karen's Cookies. You can learn more about it and see her video here.
Finally, I mentioned that I now use Glad Press n' Seal that Jodi came up with. You can read more about it and see her video here.
Lynda---this video is for you. I hope this will help you with your writing on cookies. :)
