You're going to fall in love with the dreamy color palette and approachable cookie designs in the new Love is in the Air cookie decorating kit. You can make these! Pinkie Promise!
This Hot Air Balloon is the star of the show! It is so pretty...and fun to make!
This tutorial includes a step-by-step look at all FIVE Valentine's Day cookies.
For a single batch of dough, you can make about 20 of the 4 regular sized cookies (about 5 of each) and 12 of the mini hearts. I should note that I roll my cookies to 1/4" thick using the Dough EZ Rolling Mat System. The thickness of your cookies will impact your yield.
Prepping the Royal Icing
This is the beautiful color wheel from this set.
This set features 4 gels. I used the Deep Pink in a light and dark tone. To make the light tone, you can just a little dab of the darker pink icing and mix with fresh white icing.
Check out the icing guide below for tips on making the right colors and an estimate of how much of each color you'll need.
For a single batch of dough, I typically use a single batch of icing. Since I'm using a KitchenAid mixer, I made a double batch of icing and split it in half (reserving half for another project).
The Love is in the Air cookie set has 4 gels/5 icing colors.
ICING PLAN BY THE OUNCE
Here is what I suggest making for a single batch.
Black Diamond - 1 oz (pipe only)
Turquoise - 4 oz (pipe and flood)
Dark Deep Pink - 5 oz (pipe and flood)
Light Deep Pink - 3 oz (pipe and flood)
White - 5 oz (pipe and flood)
These amounts are ESTIMATES. When it comes to how much icing to make, l don't measure exactly...I estimate. For a more detailed look at icing planning, CLICK HERE to read this helpful blog post.
For a royal icing recipe and video CLICK HERE - this recipe can be doubled in a KitchenAid Mixer.
Plan ahead to enjoy the most success with your cookie project! I break up the decorating process. It works better with my life to do a little each day. Here is the schedule for this cookie project and estimated times on how long each phase takes.
Mix Dough (30 mins), Chill Dough (2 hours inactive time), Roll and Bake (1 hour), Mix Royal Icing and Prep Icing Colors the day before you decorate (1 hour)
Outline and Flood Cookies (1-2 hours), Allow to dry in front of fan before adding details (1 hour for standard cookies and 4-6 hours for stenciled cookies). Piping details (1-2 hours).
**ALLOW COOKIES TO FULLY DRY 18-24 HOURS BEFORE PACKING. STORE IN A COOL OVEN OVER NIGHT.**
