Is it just me or does anyone one else need more time between Christmas and New Year? I really wish I had a few more days to make some detailed cookies but I don’t have a lot of time and I need cookies fast. This is what I cam up with.
Supplies for New Year Cookies:
**UPDATE** Since I made this post we have learned that disco dust is not food safe because it is made with tiny pieces of plastic. There is a food safe version you can make instead and you can find the recipe is here. Although it is not as shiny as Disco Dust, it is 100% food safe. I will now use Disco Dust on craft items that will not be eaten and use the Sparkle Dust on cookies and cakes.
I purchase Disco Dust from a local bakery supply store. I also order it online from Karen’s Cookies. If you don’t have Disco Dust on hand, sanding sugar will also work but you will get a different look.
This tutorial is going to be fast and simple.
Flood every other section with blue and sprinkle with disco dust immediately. I chose this order because disco dust will make a mess and it will be almost impossible to remove from the black if you do it first. Gently shake the disco dust onto parchment paper and pour it back into the jar so you can reuse it. Let these dry while you work on the numbers.
Outline and flood the numbers with blue and cover with disco dust. Gently shake the disco dust onto parchment paper and put it back in the jar. You might want to work with only a few cookies at a time so disco dust will stick to the wet icing.
Add some simple details to the dress and you are all done.
Happy New Year! I hope your 2012 is filled with family fun, time with friends, love, laughter and many, many blessings.
