Create beautiful, edible works of art by using a white run sugar-glazed cookie for a blank canvas. This icing will not add much sweetness and will dry very hard within 24 hours.
run sugar icing
water brush or food color pens
liquid food color
Allow the run sugar glaze to dry completely (approximately 24 hours). Fill the waterbrush with liquid color and paint or use the food color pens to finish your cookies. Note: Food color pens are another time-saving technique for this icing. Although the pens do not allow for shading or fine details, they are a quick and easy alternative to painting and an ideal method for children.
