I have been decorating cookies for a few years now. I usually only do them about 3 times per year. I have a Christmas cookie decorating party and have taught my friends to use the royal icing flood-fill technique, but I'm really the only one with the patience to decorate for 8 hours or so. LOL! They are usually done after an hour or two. This year I did my first "painting" on cookies. Loved it and can't wait to do it again!
