Some may say, “April showers bring May flowers,” but in the cookie kitchen we say, “Extra royal icing brings toothpick roses.” Use up leftover royal icing to make beautiful roses that can be used on cookies, cakes, or other baked goods. Or, make up a special batch of icing for a future project. We love having a supply of toothpick roses on hand in lots of different colors. You never know when a cookie just needs a rose to fill in a blank spot and add a little pizzaz. They can be grouped together for a big impact or left on their own.
