1
Using a smaller cookie cutter or the same one will help get the perfect shape.
2
Before you begin, put a damp paper towel at bottom of a cup to avoid the tip (#2) from drying out!
3
Study/Practice the writing on a sheet and on a sample to get the correct feel/ pressure!

Keep steady & guide the icing as it falls. This is where the right consistency of icing is important
5
Tap a brush into the damp paper towel & gently press on the “peaks” left behind when lifting the tip
6
Every time you’re done with the icing, clean the tip on parchment & place bag in the cup.
7
Add gold powder & vodka in a small container. Begin to paint it on the dry icing!
8
Clean “mishaps” with a brush/small paper towel lightly damped with vodka!
