Decorating Techniques: Sugaring
Sugaring, Sanding, Flocking... it all means the same thing: Gorgeous, sparkling cookies! I really love to use sugar on my cookies because it's such an easy way to add something special without a lot of work. Basically, to "sugar" cookies you need frosting and sanding sugar. The main rule to remember is that sugar adheres to wet frosting and not to dry frosting. You want to make sure that all areas where you don't want sugar are very dry before adding the sugar. If I'm glazing a cookie and then adding piping that will be sugared, I let the glaze dry for several hours before adding the embellishments. Here are the basic steps to sugaring.
