Basic Icing Tips for Cakes and Cookies
I’ve tried to take Wilton classes in the pass to learn about decorating cakes. I love baking and during the fall I enjoy it even more. Baking for me is a great way to relieve stress and in the colder months instead of turning on the heat I just turn my oven on and bake up some goodies. With the holidays right around the corner Safeway has already started to advertise their fall baking specials. This is when I stock up on sugar, flour, chocolate chips and other baking products for fall. The kids have been asking me all month long to help me with cooking and baking. When Curious Chef reached out to me about trying their Baking Set for kids I knew it would be perfect for baking up all kinds of fun with the kids.
We received these cool cookie cutters and the Nylon Cookie Turner for review. They are perfect for making Sugar Cutout Cookies during the fall with shapes like pumpkins, leaves, ghosts and a cat, this set was just what I needed to get the kids excited about baking some cookies with me. To get ready for Halloween we made some cookies and decorated them with some orange buttercream frosting.
My kids aren’t pros at decorating so they just pasted the frosting on their cookies. For them it was something fun to do as a family and we enjoyed it very much.
If you’re like me and you like to decorate and want to learn some basic tips check out this easy graphic from E-Replacement Parts. It shows what decorating tips you need to make some of the basic decorations that bakers use in their creations. Some of these would be great on cookies for the holidays. The kids and I will be trying some flowers the next time we make sugar cookies instead of just pasting icing all over our cookies.
