Being my first attempt at using royal icing to make some "designer" Christmas Cookies, they didn't turn out too bad. It was fun, but sooooooo tedious. I am in new "AWE" of cookie makers, and can understand why they are expensive. It really is art, and takes a little practice. If I ever do it again, hopefully they will be a little better with experience. :)
To give you an idea of some great cookies, and how to make royal icing, here are just few good sites.
