How to Decorate a Diamond Cookie

Posted by Anne Yorks on Monday, February 5, 2018

I love the new Geometric Cutter Set from Sugarbelle! The size and shape of the cutters is perfect!

Check out the video to see how I freehand these diamonds. No projector needed! 

 

Are you new to decorating? Before starting your first project, check out our FREE videos! Click here to check out our 'getting started' tutorials for videos on how to:

 

These are the Chefmaster colors I used in this set: to make the diamond color, I mixed a few dots of sky blue and leaf green. Then made the gray using super black + bright white for the gray. See the full collection of liqua-gel colors - click here

Sometimes the trick to getting consistent cookies when decorating multiple without a projector is using GUIDE DOTS (if you watch my videos, I do this all the time.) Freehand is always faster for me!

I love the silver highlight from the Crystal Color Bright Silver. Just one coat = a beautiful silver finish.

I'm using an ultra fine SILVERWHITE brush #0 to add the accents. The come in three sizes 0, 00, and 00000 (this is the smallest of the crew). Click here to view them in the shop!

Happy Decorating!

    Hey Amber,
    I use everclear because it has a high alcohol content and evaporates quickly leaving behind the best shine. I add the dust to the small bowl first and then, using a dropper, add enough alcohol to make a very thing paste. If it is too thick and I find it doesn’t spread as nice. If it is too thin I find it will evaporate the royal icing. So I try to find a thinned paste consistency. It takes a little practice to find what works. But, I love the crystal color because usually one coat is enough – AND it is FDA approved edible.

    How do you mix the color/alcohol – what quantities and what kind of alcohol?
