A tip for decorating sugar cookies: Make icing with confectioners’ sugar and milk. Make it fairly thin and ‘paint’ the icing on the cookies with a pastry brush. Thin enough to spread easily but not so thin that it just makes your cookies wet and runs off. For Cookies 2 & 3 above, you might want the frosting a little thicker.
