Hand painted cookies by Bobbie Noto

Tulips are one of my favorite flowers

I painted these cookies a few days ago to give to a friend of mine. She has been beyond helpful while

 I have had pneumonia (my husband has been out of town on business).

She adores parrot tulips, almost as much as I do.

Decorated cookies is an awesome and yummy way to say thank you.

The cookie was flood with royal icing and painted with food paste.

Once the paste dried I piped a delicate bead border in a lighter matching purple.

Dried Albumen Royal Icing Recipe:

  • 907 grams Confectioners Sugar, sifted
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract or almond extract
  • 30 grams dried albumen
  • 3/4 cup Luxe water

Add the dried albumen to luke warm water and mix well.

Using the paddle of your standing mixer place mix dried albumen and confectionary sugar in mixing bowl of the standing mixer, stir with a grease-free spatula just to incorporate. Add extract and mix on the lowest speed until ingredients are combined. Scrape the bowl down as needed. Mix for 10-20 minutes on medium-low speed.  Mix until icing forms peaks and doesn’t lose its shape. If the icing appears too thin add more powdered sugar; if icing appears too thick add more water.

Cover icing in an air tight container. The icing will keep up to 7 days in a dark cool place, DO NOT PLACE IN THE REFRIGERATOR.

 Tulip Colour Recipe:

By adding more pink to the tulip in the back I achievd looks deeper in purple colour!

For the lavender colour mix 3 parts ice blue to 1 part pink.

For the Magenta/Purple Colour mix 3 parts pink to 1 part ice blue.

Then properly load the angle shader with white on the toe and the colour of choice on the heel.

I have added a petal photo study.
