My friends at Audrey’s Flower Shop asked if I could lend a helping hand by making 100 flower themed sugar cookies for their table at tomorrow’s Bridal Show scheduled to take place at Cruiseport Gloucester. I didn’t bat an eye at the 100 cookie request but the “flower” theme had me a little worried. I can bake all day and shape and frost cookies all night but give me a pastry bag and ask me to get fancy with it, and I’m instantly out of my comfort zone. I turned to YouTube for a crash course in piping frosting using pastry tips and came across a video tutorial that changed my world! After viewing the Wilton company’s brush stroke embroidery technique using royal icing 15 times, I decided to give it a try. I sketched a design template and began the process. I was instantly WOW”d! The results were amazing and I quickly learned that their ridiculously forgiving technique was perfect for someone like me who lacks the artistic skills needed to produce professional results when using a pastry bag.
