You may have seen beautifully iced Christmas cookies and asked yourself, “How do I do that?” Learn how to “flood” Christmas cookies like a pro and create stunning cookies for your next holiday party.
How To Flood A Cookie
Fill a decorating bag with thinned Color Flow by Wilton and use tip 3 to pipe along the perimeter of your cookie.
Then, fill in your outline. An angled spatula works great to spread the icing.
If your design requires tinted Color Flow, add the icing color of your choice a toothpick at a time until you reach the desired color. The icing should be tinted before being thinned down.
Next, decorate as desired with more piped icing in a contrasting color or icing decorations!
What is Color Flow Icing?
A very sweet flavored icing, Color Flow Icing does exactly what it’s name states. It flows onto your cookie surface, then dries shiny. The flowing texture can be made as thin or as stiff as you desire, depending on the amount of water added.
Color Flow Icing will create decorations that completely cover your cookies. It can also be used for icing plaques of various designs.
Color Flow Icing yields deep, vibrant colors when mixed with Wilton® Icing Colors. Some may fade while sitting in bright light.
Color Flow Icing can be stored in an airtight, grease-free container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks. Air-dried decorations last for months.
Color Flow designs take a long time to dry, so plan to do your color flow piece at least 2-3 days in advance.
