I am planning on making nice Christmas cookies to take into work and give as gifts this year.
I want to make a practice batch on the weekend and would like suggestions on what types of icing to use.
I would each cookie to have a nice white icing base and then I will pipe on details in co lour.
(Think of the snazzy cookies you buy at chain coffee stores)
Should I use a fondant as the base and dip them in and decorate with colored royal icing?!
Either way please share your favorite icing recipes that will firm up and keep well.
Any decorating advice is also welcome!
