SUCCULENT COOKIES/ I did it!



As a kid did you call out ‘mine mine’  for one of the flowers on your party cake? Even though your lips and tongue would turn the vivid color of the sugary flower, it was worth it. They are created by hand on a tool called a flower nail. It takes artistry and practice to master the technique. This cookie is made up of my version of the flowers on the party cake. These succulents were individually piped in royal icing using a flower nail. I’ve attempted this a dozen times with a dozen failed attempts. Well this time, I finally did it. I used the leaf tip and star tip to pipe these succulents. Like most things, it comes down to perseverance and practice. I still cannot pipe a rose with the petal tip, so I will leave the beautiful roses to the experts.
