Although my piping skills may need some improvement, I love the look of this quilted iced cookie.
To get that "tufted" look, I drew a grid pattern onto the cookie using a yellow food writer. Then filled in the squares with pink royal icing. For a top-notch tutorial visit The Sweet Adventures of Sugarbelle.Once the icing was semi-set, I placed an edible pearl at the corners of the squares. I think it helps complete the pattern.
This was a fun collection to make for Valentine's Day. But the next time I make these I will use real chocolates to place on top of the iced cookie. Because really . . . what beats chocolate on Valentine's Day? Have a happy one!
