All I did was outline and fill heart shaped cookies and then use an edible ink marker to add the writing. Really, the most difficult part of the whole process was mixing the colors.
So to help with that, here's the link to my previous post on coloring tips. The most important thing really is to remember to take your time and add just a touch of coloring at a time. Be patient. It's easy to add coloring but practically impossible to take it away.
Here are the colorings I used to get these classic Conversation Heart colors:
|Lavender = AmeriColor Purple + AmeriColor Violet|
|Yellow = AmeriColor Electric Yellow|
|Pink = Wilton Rose|
And here's how I decorated the cookies:
|Outline and immediately fill the cookies with flood consistency icing. Use a skewer or scribe tool to evenly distribute the icing and give the cookie a gentle shake to help the icing settle.|
