- Sugar cookie dough (you can make your own, but I just bought a mix which was a lot easier)
- Paint palette cookie cutter and paint brush cookie cutter if desired
- Large straw
- Royal Icing - Meringue powder is an essential ingredient in royal icing
- Icing Colors
- Decorating brush
- Decorating squeeze bottle
I removed the cookies from the freezer the morning of the art party (it wasn't until the afternoon) and let them defrost on the counter. The icing will start to sweat a little as they defrost, but once they reach room temperature, they will look normal again.
