Designer Luster Dust, Super Gold
ICING THE COOKIE:
To decorate this cookie, first outline with a stiff royal icing colored in yellow or gold. Use a pastry bag
fitted with a coupler
and icing tip # 2
. In a separate bowl, thin some icing to a flood consistency (similar to chocolate syrup) and fill in the inside of the cookie. Tilt cookie to fill corners or use icing spatula
. Let cookie set, and then add wording, if desired. Change the tip on the bag to a # 3
. Add decorative outline again around the edges of the cookie if needed. Allow icing to dry several hours or overnight.
ADDING LUSTER DUST:
For a light shimmer Luster dust
can be brushed on dry, but to create the shiny gold star you must make a â€œpaintâ€ with gold luster dust
and a liquid (not water). To make luster dust paint, carefully open luster dust bottle and tap a small amount (about 1/4 teaspoon) into a paint tray
. Using lemon oil
, white spirits (vodka) or clear vanilla extract
, add a drop at a time of one of the liquids and mix together until you get the consistency you desire. Paint thinned luster dust over cookie and let dry.
THE FINISHING TOUCH:
Use pastry bag with #2 tip and apply a dot of icing to each corner of the star. Use tweezers or fingers and carefully apply dragees or sugar pearls
. Allow cookies to completely dry before stacking or bagging.
Handle painted with gold luster dust paint. After drying the black details were added.
