I must admit Sydney and I are once again writing a post at 1:00 am; we must sub-conscientiously enjoy the hour. Yesterday I explained the romantic and loving memory that The Champagne Sugar Cookies represents for both Sydney and myself. We actually began planning how we would decorate our individual bottles and glasses; when it dawned upon me anyone in a relationship would have a bottle of wine or champagne (with or without alcohol ) representing a heart felt experience .
Here is how we decorated our glasses and bottles.

Flood consistency royal icing
Soft consistency royal icing
Prepare your mise en place.
Add the egg whites.
With a wooden spoon stir until all the icing sugar is moistened and dissolved.
In a mixing bowl add the meringue powder and water. Beat on medium high speed for 3 mintues or until soft peaks form.
This is almost the same base as above, but if your uncomfortable with using raw egg whites the meringue powder works just as well.
