Ice ice baby
Here at Custom Cookie Company, there are two primary icing techniques that we use on a regular basis.
Piping icing The first icing technique is called piping and this is used to create intricate designs and patterns.
Flooding icing The second technique is called flooding. This is used to fill large areas of the biscuit.Flooding icing adds a beautiful and smooth blanket to the biscuit. By mastering these two techniques, you open yourself up to a wide choice of biscuit designs.
When your biscuits first come out of the oven, you’re probably desperate to get to work and start icing. Hold it right there. As tempting as it may be to jump right in and start unleashing your creativity on your delicious cookies, it’s vital that you let your biscuits cool before you start icing. If you add icing to warm biscuits, it’ll melt faster than Olaf on a sunny day.
Use the right tools
Make sure you have the right tools and equipment to hand before you make a start on your cookies. We recommend squeezy bottles for applying the flood icing and professional piping bags or applicators for adding the fiddly details with ease.
