Want to make some daisy cookies?

To make daisy cookies, I first made cookies with a daisy cutter, baked and let cool. I then prepared my royal icing, divided and tinted white, yellow, pink, lime green and orange with my Americolor Soft Gel Pastes (Bright White, Egg Yellow, Electric Pink, Electric Green and Orange). Prepare disposable decorating bags with couplers and size “3” or “4” tips. I piped a circle of yellow, then I outlined and piped to fill the petals in white. I used a stiffer icing to outline, then thinned the icing a bit to pipe the inside of the petals. Between each petal I added a little squeeze-and-pull petal with a color of icing.
