loving the nautical.

Here it is, part two of the nautical cookie project! (If you haven’t read my last post on this project, you could check it out here). Like I said in the last post, there were so many different nautical-themed designs that it was hard to pick just two… boats and anchors seemed to pair well.

In terms of piping the boat details, I started off with the navy (#1) and piped a thin straight line down the middle, then piped and filled the base of the boat. Finished it off with a navy flag and small dot of icing above the flag – allow the navy to completely dry before piping the two red sails. Though my original design had a border similar to the anchor cookies, I decided to skip it altogether to keep it a bit more simple (thought a border might make it look too busy).

Did I ever mention that I love baker’s twine? Especially the classic red baker’s twine… not sure what it is, I feel like it just makes everything a little more appealing and fun. Anyhow, the red baker’s twine that I had actually paired perfectly with the color scheme for this project. Finished it off with a custom tag, tied a bow, and called it a day!

      Thank you! Glad to hear it – don’t give up because though royal icing can get a little finicky with the consistency, it’ll be worth it in the end !
