Here Ronin is mixing the raspberry hot pink icing.
And this is Hunter mixing the icing with strawberry juice which creates a lighter, more pig-like pink. We may have used too much juice but luckily we had some tapioca starch on hand which we used to thicken up the mixture. Next time we'll have a better idea of how much juice to use.
After the cookies cooled, I separated them onto three different plates.
We each got five cookies to decorate.
We had some all natural pastel sprinkles leftover from the Trader Joe's Gingerbread Man kit. We used those on these cookies.
The verdict was that we liked the raspberry better for color and the strawberry better for flavor. So I guess we'll have to just keep making both!
