Decorating with marbled icing is a fun and simple way to create an impressive looking design. These bright cookies would be perfect for a poolside party!
I used my Orange Vanilla Spice recipe for this cookie, which is available in my tutorial shop. You’ll also find lots more video tutorials there that will teach you the basics of royal icing along with some more advanced techniques.
For my bright color palette, I used Wilton gel pastes in sky blue, leaf green violet, rose and lemon yellow.
As you’ll see in the video below, the marbled icing technique is done in flood consistency royal icing and the border is then piped using stiff consistency royal icing. Read this post for information on royal icing consistencies. I’m decorating on a 3×3″ cookie, which is my standard size.
You can customize this design with as many or as few colors as you’d like. Play around with it by pulling the scribe tool in different directions.
