Rose basket for Mother's Day with TruColor swirl roses


Rose basket cookie by Tunde Dugantsi

When I have some left over royal icing I like to make some flowers that can be used for later projects. This is also a great opportunity to try my new colors.

This time I played with TruColor super red gel natural food color. I needed to add some extra lemon juice to my icing to achieve real red color, as egg white is a base, which turns the natural food color purple. But, as you can see, with some lemon juice I could balance out the acidity and I have some nice red roses. When I had only a little icing left in my bag I added some more white icing to create some dark pink roses, then added more icing to get the lighter shades. I like to use different shades of the same color.

I used my favorite basket cookie cutter again, if you would like to get one from Cookie Cutter Kingdom, use coupon code FRIENDSOFTUNDE to get 10% off.

And some pictures if you would like to have a closer look of the patterns:
