This post is the second in a series of Valentine-themed cookies. Are you tired of pink yet? Don’t fret, these cookies are decorated in three shades of pink! I know it’s still pink but this too shall pass. Decorating with various shades of one color creates dimension. These dotty hearts were done with the wet-on-wet technique. You will amaze at this adorable design which is very easy and fun to do. Use flood icing to transform dots into hearts. The secret tool -- the toothpick.
