DIRECTIONS

1.Mix Confetti Cookie mix, according to the package instructions. Roll and cut out the cookie dough with an egg-shaped cookie cutter, then bake, according to the package directions.

2.Mix the royal icing mix, according to the package instructions.

3.Separate the mixed royal icing into bowls and add coloring, a little at a time, until you reach the desired color intensity.
TIP: Keep in mind that the colors will be slightly darker when dried.

4.For flower designs, prepare piping bags with a coupler and a #104 piping tip. Add your colored icing to the bag.

5.On parchment paper, keep the round end of the piping tip down, then pipe a small rainbow shape to create one petal of the flower. Continue piping small rainbow shapes until your flower is complete.

6.Use another color of icing and a #2 piping tip to add a dollop of icing for the flower’s middle. Allow the flowers to dry completely before using them as decorations (about 2-4 hours).
TIP: Get creative! Mix and match colors, or try large and small flower shapes.

7.When your cookies have cooled completely, flood them with royal icing and let them dry completely (about 2-4 hours).

8.Once the flooded layer is dry, add dots, lines, and other designs to dress up the cookies.

9.Use royal icing as a glue to attach the flowers you made to the cookies.
TIP: When mixed icings are not being used, cover or place them in airtight containers so they don’t dry out.
