With the 4th right around the corner (literally!), I thought I’d show you all a quick and easy way to make perfect stripes by hand. Break out the rulers, cuz here we go!
Start with your baked, cooled cookies. I used stars and hearts.
Using a food pen, draw a line from tip to tip of the star. (I prefer using a light color pen)
This is really the hardest part: I mark the center of the cookie as my focal point. From there I figured out how big I could make my stripes. Then made my marks. My cookie was 4 inches and I wanted 5 stripes so I made them each a smidge over 3/4 of an inch.
Now draw your stripes
Pipe one color at a time and let it dry completely before adding the next color. I started with the top (just made sense to me;))
I use 20 second icing, cuz I’m lazy like that! LOL!
Then add your stripes.
Now for the finishing touches….
I thought I’d change things up and make cute dots instead of stars on my little flags. What’s life without a little whimsy, right?
Ta-Da!! Have a happy and SAFE 4th of July!!
