Kisses for my Valentine

Sometimes the simple gifts in life is the one that warm up our hearts the most. 

These cookies are a perfect example, they are little but can mean a lot to the one special person that will received them. 

I love to decorate  these lips cookies, they are very simple and fast to do.

I started by baking and preparing royal icing, here is the link for the video of how to prepare royal icing. 

To safe time and don't use to many containers, I started tinting flooding consistency icing in a very light shade of pink, decorated some cookies  and later I started adding little drops of orange and pink food gel color and decorated some other lips cookies, and I finishing up adding drops of red food gel color to decorated  the last lips cookies.  I let them dry and using edible markers 
I made some lines in the middle of the cookie. 

Making these cookies I notice how pretty the red icing look and that it didn't have spots like some other times I used red food gel color. 

So I started using pink food gel color every time I need to prepare red icing. 

Here is the video for more detailed explanation on how I tinted red icing. 

Another thing that make these cookies so special is the  sweet heart box. 

Remember that the presentation for your cookies is as important as the flavor  and the look of your cookies.
