It’s that time of year again for Tangling on Cookies!! This is last year’s post from after the event. This year, I thought it would be good to re-post it ahead of time. Check my Facebook page or website for Tangle Cookie event days. Recipes are at the end of the post.
For the tangling, we used Wilton Foodwriters. They have two color sets Primary and Neon. We used fine and extra fine. I believe they may have a brush tip also. We also used a set of Betty Crocker Easy Writers. they are a very loose brush tip, where the Wilton’s are a felt tip like Crayola markers. The Betty Crocker markers were great for blending and background color.
For 3D effects , we used Wilton’s Candy Decorating Pens. They come in a set of 4 colors and dry to a hard candy. To use these you have to keep them in a cup of hot water to soften the candy up so it will flow. This makes it really difficult to draw with as we do with the markers plus the candy cools and hardens pretty fast.
Here are recipes for cookies and the icing – Thanks to my Mom, Cherie Hartwick, CZT, for these!
