    Is color flow and cookie icing in the bottle the same product?

  • CR Cookie Designs

    No. Color flow dries very hard and it is thinned down. It is typically used to make flowers or other decorations to put on cakes, cupcakes or other sweets. Royal icing is used to cover cookies because they are easier to bite into them. I use royal icing on my cookies. Hope this helps :)

There's no faster way to spruce up holiday cookies! Top your cut shapes with Wilton sparkling sugar, nonpareils or jimmies for a quick color makeover, then bake. You can even use another cookie cutter as a guide for creating a festive shape on the cookie.
