The wet-on-wet royal icing technique is a simple one, but you have to move quickly in order to achieve the desired effect. This technique is called wet-on-wet because the designs (roses in this case) are applied while the base layer of icing is still wet, which allows the design to dry flat and smooth. If you donโ€™t pipe your designs in time, the base layer of icing will start to dry and youโ€™ll end up with wrinkles and bumps. Youโ€™ll usually about 5 minutes from the time the base layer is piped until it starts to crust.

For this project, you will need:

Roll out cookie dough (my Orange Vanilla Spice cookie recipe is available in my tutorial shop)
Wilton Comfort-Grip Egg Cookie Cutter
Flood consistency royal icing
Stiff consistency royal icing
Scribe tool
Round decorating tips 1 and 3
Bronze pearl dust
White pearl dust
Small brush
Alcohol or flavored extract

Beige = A touch of brown
Pink = Wilton aster mauve from the Garden Tone Set
Green = Wilton juniper green from the garden tone set
