When my dear friend told me her daughter was celebrating her 8th birthday with a summertime pool party, I jumped at the chance to make her some fun cookies. Bikinis for the girls, and trunks for the boys–a fresh and fun favor for both kids and adults to enjoy.
I used the same technique for storing, rolling and refrigerating the dough as I did for the pie crust.
Here’s the recipe: Wilton Meringue Royal Icing
My friend Elizabeth, pastry chef extraordinaire, taught me to first do an outline…
After you’ve done both outlines, fill in the rest of your icing, or “flood” as the pros say (don’t worry, the dimples will smooth out). Then, make sure the first layer dries completely before you add the second.
