Never mind! I found Larkspur's review: This is such a great recipe! It works so nicely and tastes just like the icing they have on cookies in the store. I made fall themed leaf cookies with this; I tried to get a marbled effect two ways. First, I tried piping an outline on each cookie with one color of glaze and then filling the outline in with the same color. Than I piped in the center with a different color and marbled it slightly with a toothpick. This worked ok, but the glaze was runny and had a tendency to drip off, making a mess. So at the end, I poured two colors of glaze into one bowl and dipped the cookies in. They came out beautifully marbled and it was so much easier! After the colors dried, I piped veins onto each cookie with dark brown glaze that I added extra powdered sugar to, so that it would be thicker. The cookies were awesome and looked beautiful....everyone loved them!

If anyone wants help learning how to decorate cookies Marion has very good tutorials on Sweetopia. Just click on her tutorial link at the top of her page.

I am hopping on the treadmill, myself. This time of year I intensify my workout so I can eat all the goodies.

Hey Marianne-was busy taking care of my grand daughter. Do you have a photo? Isn't it fun to play with your food? It is like making an art Masterpiece. Sounds like Marianne has found a hidden talent! Thanks, for the tips.

Lela, it IS fun to play with my food! My family is always asking, "Photo first?" Also, isn't it just so much fun to take care of granddaughters?
