This past Christmas, Little a gave me one of my all-time favorite gifts. Presented in a small, decorative holiday box were five little bottles of gel food color, five little pots of gorgeous luster dust, and one little pot of hot pink disco dust! The gel colors were a great addition to my colorful collection, but I did not own a speck of luster or disco dust. Although I wasn’t quite sure how to use it, I knew its purpose was to provide sparkle and accent to cake and cookie frostings, and my heart skipped a beat!!
With Valentine’s Day around the corner, I couldn’t wait to bake & decorate –
Because I was impatient and wildly excited about playing with my new “toys”, I frosted the cookies using CK Royal Icing Mix. I found it to be quick and easy to mix and apply. (Wilton makes one, too, but I’ve never tried it.) I highlighted the word “hugs” with my hot pink disco dust (all dusts were labeled non-toxic). This you-tube tutorial helped me tremendously.
I used “Super Red” luster dust applied over the royal icing on the right, and I used Wilton Pearlized Jimmies (love these!) on the left.
It’s true what they say. “Good things come in small packages!”
Maybe the best things.
Note to my husband: this does not mean that the special little boxes that you give me at Christmas should contain luster dust. No….no.
And to Khalil….thanks ;-)
