Decorating Techniques: Specialty Glazing
Some cookies have more than one color of glaze on the same cookie, and some cookies are only partially glazed. In order to learn how to glaze using these techniques, it may be helpful to review the glazing tutorial by clicking here.
Let's start with partially glazing a cookie. This is a very useful technique if you want just a portion of the cookie glazed. You will need full-strength (not watered-down) frosting in the same color as the glaze you will be using.
Glazing with more than one color is pretty much the same idea as the partially glazed cookie, except that you will be glazing on both sides of the dam. Start at the top of the cookie and work your way down. I will use an Easter egg to demonstrate. My top color will be pink, the middle color will be yellow, and the bottom color will be purple.
This technique can be used whether you are using 2 colors or 5 colors, and whether you are going up and down or left to right. Be creative and have fun with it!
