Sugar Bears take TWO!!! Friday night I decided to get the sugar bears decorated so I could take them with me to Waco on Saturday and give to my Mom so she could deliver them on Monday!!!
This is my first REAL experience with Royal Icing and to be honest I was a little intimidated by it BUT I faced my fears head on and WHIPPED, its butt.... LOL
I mixed up the royal icing in my electric mixer for about 8-10 minutes until it was thick and formed peaks! I mixed in some green coloring for that BAYLOR BEAR GREEN!! After I had enough for my piping icing I added a little water to the icing to get my "flooding" icing! After I started flooding the cookies I realized that it could have been a little thinner but it worked out fine.
I also thought the recipe made a little more than it did. So, next time I will double the recipe to make sure I have just enough.
