Tutorial: Ruffles

Friday, February 17, 2012
I'm pretty girly girl.

I mean not pink and zebra and glitter kind of girly...  I mean like lace and ruffles and makeup and shoes kind of girly.  And sparkly things....can't forget pretty sparkly things.

So it's no real surprise that I love putting ruffles on cookies.








 
you know, girly.  :)

The most important part of making ruffles is the icing consistency and the angle of your icing tip.  Your icing should be thick.  Thicker than piping icing but you know....you have to be able to get it out of the tips...so not that thick.  And the angle... well, you should probably just go watch the VIDEO...

Loved this tutorial, now I need to start practicing! Just wondering...did you use a #103 tip to make the ruffle pattern on the last heart cookie shown in this post? Would love to see how you decorated that one ;)

Alison said...

Thanks all!
Actually Paula, I used a #104 for that one. But a #103 might work too. Just make sure to bring your ruffle all the way to the center

It is obvious that you are ultra talented. Bummer about the move and baking restrictions; but looks like you've made it work :)
My question...You have MANY baked goods for your blog and videos. What in the world do you do with them when you're done. It's probably a silly question...but just wondering.
