Mushrooms..... new cookies for me.
They are so popular and I've always loved looking at them.....but didn't have a mushroom cutter.
Well......you don't have to have one. :)
Colors are entirely up to you.
Start by piping the inside and stem of the mushroom (as seen below).
Allow the "insides" to dry for a bit before flooding the stem.
This gives it a bit more dimension.
Allow that to dry for a while
(even longer if you are using RED glaze....which tends to bleed).
To make the mushroom inside "wedge" lines.....
use a long tool (like my handy cake tester) to add character to partially dried glaze.
Polka-dots are optional.
(Although I go with polka-dots ANY chance I get!)
For a final detail, add a accent line to the bottom rim of the mushroom top
and another half circle to the bottom of the stem (as shown below).
