Being that we are right upon 'the most wonderful time of the year'... my friend had a good idea and we decided that baking and decorating would be just right for our how-to class this week.
We made up a batch of sugar cookies, which were probably the *best* I have ever tried.
And then we made up some mock royal icing.
Really easy and works great!
1 cup confectioners sugar
2 tablespoons milk
2 teaspoons light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
Mix to the consistency you desire adding more milk if necessary.
Separate into bowls and tint.
Everyone had their own idea of how they wanted to decorate.
Such uniqueness from each child.
Make the most of it!
