If you're a cookier,
you know that the little details can really be a life-saver when decorating.
It can be a technique,
it can be a tool,
it can be these little treasures!
Black. Sugar. Pearls.
Until a year ago, I would just add eyes using black icing.
If you know me, you know I
hate dislike black icing.
So then my wonderful friend Kris from So Cute Cookies
introduced me to these.
I was hesitant to use them because
I figured they'd bleed just like the icing eyes (my way of adding eyes) sometimes did.
Then I tried them.
Another favorite thing of mine.
I heart BLACK SUGAR PEARLS from CK.
(I've heard that the Wilton ones bleed--I've never tried them)
You can buy them at Karen's Cookies.
If you see them, buy them because sometimes they're hard to find.
I just might need to try all of the other colors too!
When I used them for the above cookies,
I placed them right where I wanted them to be
so they sink right into the icing while it's still wet.
