Cookie Decorating Frosting

Cookie Decorating Frosting created by badams31410

Secret recipe from the bakery! A yummy frosting that sets up into a hardened glaze on top of the cookie, but remains tender to eat. Great for taking cookies 'on the road' because they won't stick together.

ingredients

directions

  • Mix together sugar, flavoring, measured water, corn syrup, and food coloring. Slowly add enough water to make frosting a spreadable consistency (should be thicker than Elmer's school glue).
  • If a strong color is desired, decrease water so that the food coloring doesn’t make frosting too runny. If you get the frosting too runny, add a little powdered sugar.
  • Spread on cookies (add sprinkles or other toppings immediately). Allow to dry about 30 min or until no longer sticky. Will set up into a glaze so cookies won’t stick together when stacked.
  • This recipe makes about 1/2 cup of frosting (about enough for one color).

    can this icing be made ahead of time and stored?

    Very good! Not quite as tasty as a butter-cream type frosting, but this one can travel/stack! I didn't have corn syrup, so I substituted honey and it worked fine...maybe not super-glossy, but they had a nice sheen and looked fine for my purposes. I only got 10 large cookies frosted with this recipe amount, but I do tend to spread it thick. That may also be why they took over an hour to set completely in our humid climate. Overall a great recipe!!

    I love this frosting. Not only do I use it on my sugar cookies, I use it on my cupcakes too. Though the top solidifys a bit, it is still soft to eat and not nearly as messy as other frostings I've tried (which is perfect for a classful of pre-schoolers & b-day parties)! This is now my go-to frosting recipe. Thanks for sharing, wyojess!
