Piping, Flooding & Wet on Wet Technique

I was overwhelmed by the response that I got from my April Showers collection. It really warmed my heart to know that so many people liked my design. There were a few questions about how I made the flowers on the boots and umbrella. The flowers were made using a wet on wet technique. This is simply where you drop flood consistency icing onto a cookie that has just been flooded and is still wet. I learned this technique from Sugarbelle here.

I’m using this technique again for my Easter cookie designs and I thought I would film myself doing it so that you could see it in action. I forgot that Sugarbelle had made a video on wet on wet & I realized it when I was writing this post and linking to her sight. Now you’ll have two videos to watch. :)

In the video you will also see me pipe and flood a cookie. Hope you find this video helpful. Have a great week everyone!

    I love the look of this particular technique but run into issues every time I try it using light and dark colours. For example if the largest area I flood is a dark pink and I drop in white dots..by morning the pink has bleed into the white dots. I’m not sure what i”m doing wrong. Any suggestions?
