In this episode, we'll make a delicious decorator's icing and Cindy will also show how to decorate these cookies to look like summer flip-flops!
Ingredients
Decorator's icing:
  Meringue powder mix/1 egg white 1 1⁄2 Tablespoon
  Powdered sugar 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Warm water 3 Tablespoon (or 1 t. if using fresh egg white)
  Vanilla/Lemon extract 1⁄4 Teaspoon
Directions

GETTING READY:
1.In mixer bowl, with whisk attachment, add Meringue powder (or egg white) and powdered sugar.
2.Add warm water and vanilla or lemon extract. Beat on high speed for 7 minutes, until icing is fluffy.

MAKING:
To Decorate Flip Flop Cookies:
3.Divide icing into 3 small bowls. Using cake decorating gel colors, mix 1 bowl of green, 1 bowl of pink, then leave 1 bowl white.
4.Use 3 disposable cake decorating bags and tips and fill as follows: #3 tip (green), #3 tip (pink), #35 tip (white).
5.On cooled cookies, outline the foot with the green icing, then make the strap that goes in between the first 2 toes.
6.Use the pink icing to make the toe nail polish and the white to make a flower on the sandal. You can also put a drop of green or pink in the center of the flower.

SERVING:
7.Let the cookies sit, uncovered, at room temperature until the frosting sets up. You can then transfer them to an air-tight container (I use the parchment I baked them on in between the layers of cookies). The cookies can keep this way for up to 3 weeks at room temperature and can be served with your choice of beverages.
