Poured Sugar Icing

I ran across these adorable cookies the other day at the decorated cookie.  Cute, huh?  I love the little birds.  But I also love that she shares the technique for decorating the cookies with Poured Sugar Icing… which I think I just might have to try!

These birdies are the result of my experimenting with poured sugar icing, that is, an icing you pour rather than spread or pipe. Usually, poured sugar is used to coat petits fours, but I used it to coat cookies.

the pros of poured sugar icing:

quick, easy, tasty, beautiful smooth coat

the cons:
I felt like I wasted a lot

Overall, I’d say poured sugar is a good way to easily coat cookies without the muss and fuss of whipping meringue, preparing frosting bags, piping…

Go read the whole thing and get the how-to on both the birds, and the poured sugar technique!

Very cool :)
