How to make a pot of gold decorated sugar cookie.
Outline and fill the pot in black. I used a thicker consistency icing to give the bowl more texture.
After letting the black icing dry for about 30 minutes, outline and fill the top of the cookie with gold royal icing. Immediately after flooding your cookie with gold royal icing, sprinkle with gold sprinkles.
How to decorate rainbow cookies.
With thick consistency icing, pipe big dots of icing to look like clouds each end of the rainbow cookie.
Outline and flood two sections of your rainbow cookie with two royal icing colors of your choice. Make sure they are not touching or they will run together. Let these sections dry for about 30 minutes before adding more colors.
Outline and fill in left over cookie sections to complete your rainbow!
And there ya go! Easy delicious Saint Patrick’s day sugar cookies. I hope you enjoy making them and eating them!!
