Well, here's what I do...I make more icing than I need. (I've run out one too many times.)
If I'm making more than a dozen cookies, I usually double this recipe.
AND...if I'm using several different colors, I try to set aside a little white. Why?
- You never know what color you may run out of...
- Or, you could forget to make a color....oh, no!
- If you thin out your flood icing too much, add a little of your extra white. It won't change the color much and you've just saved yourself from a big headache.
Having a little extra white icing is like having an insurance policy. You hope you never need it, but you're glad it's there when you do.
I hope that helps! Can't wait to see all the other tips at Works For Me Wednesday!
