Patti will teach you how to use natural, plant-based colors for coloring icing, how to artfully decorate cookies using a paint brush (NOT a piping bag!), and use pressed flowers to finish your cookies.

In this workshop, Patti will teach you
- How to make royal icing using egg whites (and even aquafabba for a vegan version!)
- How to color royal icing using natural colors such as freeze-dried fruits, plant-based Supernatural colors, and pantry items like turmeric and matcha powder
- How to prevent common problems that can arise when working with royal icing
- About sourcing and drying pressed flowers
