Now that kids are headed back to school, that means you may have a little more time on your hands to get creative. With a few leaf cookie cutters and royal icing mixed with fall colors, you can create a simple fall leaf wreath. Typically we will make two icing consistencies for our cookie sets, an outline and a flood consistency. This time, we made one consistency for both the outline and the flood steps. This is because we added details using a food grade pen instead of our usual practice of piping with royal icing. To achieve the softer fall colors we mixed a small amount of the brown royal icing with the other colors. Enjoy making a fall leaf wreath of cookies for your next get together.
