I also had several different shapes of cookies frozen. When you mainly decorate for fun it becomes cost effective to do these things. If I make cookies for friends and family and I have leftover dough I go ahead & cut shapes that I think I may want to decorate soon and bake them. Then once they are cooled I freeze them. I use Sugarbelle's sugar cookie recipe and I follow this post for tips on freezing the cookies.
So armed with leftover icing and cookies I decided to practice on the ruffle technique and make patriotic crosses with ruffles. I love God and I love my country. This is a great idea for a God Bless America theme.
- red, white and blue stiff consistency royal icing
- #104, #103 and #102 Wilton piping tips

here. There's still time to participate. I'll be working on some cookies for a friend at work, Father's Day is coming up and so is my hubby's birthday.
Have a great week!
