Sorry this isn't better quality. I just on a whim decided to record me in action while I was already making my icing for the set I was working on. I have had a lot of questions about icing consistency lately. It is also one of the hardest parts to master when learning how to decorate cookies. I start with a thick consistency which is what you would use for florals, leaves or stencils. Next I water it down using my spray bottle just a little bit to where it has a little bit more movement to piping consistency. The third consistency is my flood that I again add more water to thin it down. This consistency you want it to ribbon off, settle and smooth out. If it doesn't settle on its own give it a little jiggle to see if it will on your cookie. Please let me know if you are struggling I'm here to help!
