Painting on Cookies and Cakes
Now Playing
Part 1:
Watercolor Effects with Icing Gel
Wilton Instructors
Learn how to play with icing gel color to create stunning watercolor effects on cookies. Painter and cake decorator, Robin Mueller, shows how to create bold strokes, flowing shapes, and even delicate floral motifs that look like they could be painted on tea cups. All of these techniques are demonstrated on cookies covered in royal icing or fondant, though they could easily be done on cakes or other sweet treats.

Part 2:
Surface Designs with Royal Icing and Buttercream
Wilton Instructors
In Part 2, Robin uses tinted buttercream to create painterly effects on cakes and cookies. Learn how to apply buttercream with a palette knife to create bold impasto-style strokes, or how to smooth delicately colored icing to create a soft watercolor effect. Finally, you’ll learn how to paint with buttercream on cookies to create lacy, delicate designs that mimic embroidery.

Shimmer Effects with Pearl and Color Dust

Robin shares ideas for adding metallic accents to the cakes and cookies shown in this series as well as store-bought treats that need to be kicked up a notch.

very good piping gel & "watercolor" (lemon extract) fondant cookies at the end of the video--I can see them being decorated with edible metallics for more depth
