Use royal icing to create professional-looking, decorated cookies at home with just a few tools and a little imagination.

Tools to Use

These items make decorating easier: candy sprinkles, mini offset spatula, squirt bottle, piping bag and food coloring.

Royal Icing

First, let the cookies cool completely. Then make royal icing, a mixture of egg whites and confectioners' sugar (get the recipe: Royal Icing).

Start with Outlining Icing

For outlining icing, add a little extra confectioners' sugar — you want the consistency to be thick like paste.

Add Food Coloring

Remember, a drop of food coloring goes a long way.


Use a piping bag with a small tip to outline the shape of the cookie. If the icing is too loose, add some more confectioners' sugar.

Steady-Hand Tip

Hold the bag in the hand you write with and the tip in the other hand as a guide. Gently squeeze the top of the bag. When you're done, set the cookie aside to dry.

Filling In Cookies

For a solid color, use the squeeze bottle or a spoon to fill in the outlines. This is called "flooding the cookie."

Adding Solid Colors

Use a thinner icing for this step, with a soft pudding or gravy consistency. If your icing is too thick, simply add water.

Cookies with a Solid Color

Let the base color dry a little before decorating.


Use a piping bag to decorate the cookies.


This is the time to add cute candies or sprinkles for decoration.
