wet on wet royal icing technique

Elegant and easy wet on wet poinsettias technique!

I wanted to share a quick royal icing technique, wet on wet. Wet on wet  is a method of using a royal icing constancy of 10-12 seconds to top outline, coat, and decorate your cookies  in a few minutes. For the poinsettia cookie above it literally took me 3.5 minutes to outline, cover, and decorate. Once the wet on wet method was finished I allowed the sugar cookie to dry for about 2 hours, piped a snails trail boarded, and  allowed the cookie to completely dry. The results are not only beautiful, but simple.
