I had so much fun painting these Valentine's Cookies for an elderly friend. As a kid I used to wear red cowgirl boots with pink tights, and it drove my sister nuts. Over and over we had this conversation:
-Amy "Pink and red don't match, you can't wear those together! They clash!"
-Me "Then what about Valentine's Day!"
So once a year I get to let my love and pink and red together run wild. Plus I got to try out my new Squire's Kitchen paints, and let me tell you. They. Are. AMAZING!
I was using the Cherry Red and Cherry Blossom edible paints from Squire's Kitchen. This line of paints were designed by world renown painting baker, Natasha Collins, of Nevie Pie cakes. I really love her work, and so I was excited to try out these paints. They have such a rich and smooth consistency. They're water based, and have the same feel as watercolor ink. They are my new personal favorite edible paints, and I know you'll love them too, especially if you love Progels, because they have a very similar texture.
I love mixing brands of paints together to get a really wide array of color tones. So I also used Strawberry ProGel, Pink ProGel, Red Poppy Paint, Pink Poppy Paint, and Honey Gold Poppy Paint. Along with my Edible Art Paints which we will have in stock soon.
