frosting for the party

This is how my table looks when it is getting ready for cookie decorating.  There are usually more cookies.  I was still baking when I took this.  I have guests bring sprinkles or candies or anything they wish to put on the cookies.  I even have them bring special cookie cutters and I am always willing to bake more cookies.

I provide cookies and frosting (plates to take home on too).

Here is the frosting recipe:

1 cup powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract or paste

1 teaspoon corn syrup (makes it harden faster so leave this bit out if you want slower drying)

2 to 4 tablespoons hempmilk or other type of milk

cake decorating colors.

In a small bowl, put in the powdered sugar.  Add the vanilla and corn syrup.  Start with two tablespoons of milk and mix in.  Add a bit more milk until it is the right consistency to spread or pipe.  If it gets too wet, add more powdered sugar.

At this point add color.  I use the food coloring that is used for cakes.  See that black?  That makes black frosting that does not taste bad.

I am willing to make all these colors if someone asks.  I usually do not have to.
