    Don’t forget to spray it with water to toothpaste consistency for the borders and shampoo for the fill! I loved the comparison. Thanks ladies.

    Hi Mindy (and Stephanie, sort of). I have my own family recipe for ‘sugar cookies’ that, from what we can tell, has been handed down from my Great Great Grandmother (circa 1888) and has nutmeg in it and they taste amazing. And although I won’t use any other sugar cookie recipe, I have only tried making royal icing ONCE and it wasn’t that great. Usually I only use buttercream on my sugar cookies (and note, I make 13 doz at Christmas) … BUT After watching your vlog, I am very interested and (dare I say) eager to try Steph’s royal icing on my great great grandmother’s cookie recipe to see how they work together. 🙂 My son and his wife are expecting their first child and next week is the gender reveal party, so I’ve decided to make all the guests my test subjects — LOL — I’ll be sure to let you know how they turned out. Please send my thanks to Stephanie (who I now follow on Instagram as well). Thanks
