DIRECTIONS

  • Beat first three ingredients, then thin with a little water, if needed.
  • Add almond, vanilla, and butter flavoring.
  • Depending on how many colors you want, divide it between several bowls.
  • To decorate on top of original layer of icing, thicken with powdered sugar until desired thickness.
  • Decorating works best when used in the decorating bags with tips.
  • Also, before spreading thin icing over cookies, try putting an outline of thick icing from a small decorating tip around the edge of the cookie.
  • This way, the thin icing will not drip over the edge.
