I used too much white icing as the base on this one. Once I started adding the stripes, the icing flooded over my border.
Once the icing set, I used a sharp knife to cut away the spilled icing. Then I piped dots around the edge to cover up the mess.
Plaid and Hearts
Khalstead's Modified No Fail Sugar Cookies (using butterscotch flavored pudding)
1 cup confectioner's sugar : 1 Tbsp. light corn syrup : 1 Tbsp. milk
(Adjust amount of milk to achieve desired consistency in icing.)
(I added a little cocoa powder along with brown food coloring to make the brown icing.)
