In advance: Make flowers. On waxed paper-covered board, using red royal icing, pipe 16 tip-129 red drop flowers with a tip 2 white dot center for each. Make extras to allow for breakage and let dry overnight.
Roll out dough. Cut, bake and cool cookies using Comfort-Grip Cutter. Ice cookies smooth in thinned rose royal icing; let dry. Decorate using full-strength royal icing. Print tip 2 names in red. Attach flowers with a dot of royal icing. Pipe tip 349 leaves in green.
Perfect for classic borders or cloudlike decorations, dots are a versatile technique that can be piped in a range of sizes. The dot technique can be used as a simple border for cakes and cookies, as well as for icing cupcakes or piping meringues.

these are a good project for a beginner and make cute little gifties! The possibilities for these are endless, as we made different color backgrounds and flowers. The cookies can be baked and stored in advance, and various flowers can be too. We made flowers in lots of pinkish and purplish shades and set them out to dry. Basically, of you spend some time in the beginning making all the parts, then before the event, you can just put things together without breaking your back or tiring your feet/legs on the big day.
