Dove Tutorial

I realize this post is a little late, but I figured if I got this published before the holidays officially ended that you all would forgive me. I have a quick tutorial on doves for you all. They are simple to execute so if you’re looking to dip your toe into the world of cookie decorating, this tutorial might be the best one to do it for.

Here’s what you’ll need:
white 20 second icing
stiff white icing
white nonpareils
stiff grey icing
#3 piping tip
#1 piping tip

You will start out by outlining and flooding the cookie in white royal icing using your #3 piping tip.

Let that dry for a few hours. Next, you’ll take your stiff white icing fitted with a #2 tip and outline the wings. Immediately dip the cookie into the nonpareils.

Lastly take your grey icing with a #1 tip and add in the eyes. That’s all you have to do to make these adorable cookies. Enjoy!
