My first attempt at icing cookies...and with using stencils. Not professional by any means, but I'm still happy with my first try.
My first few cookies had too much icing...and the letters "peaked" like little mountains...
...but I kept trying, and began to get a little better at using less icing.
Tried my rose stencils too...they were larger than the cookie...but part of the design still looked nice.
And, the best part about icing cookies?...You get to eat your mistakes!
