- To make the icing, put the gelatin packet in a small bowl with the hot water. Stir until dissolved. Add cold water and stir.
- Measure powdered sugar in a large bowl. Add 3 tbsp of the water/gelatin mixture and beat on low. Add more of the water/gelatin mixture till you have a very stiff icing. After you stop beating, peaks should maintain their rough stiffness for at least 5 seconds.
- Separate the icing into different bowls and add color as you wish, until your desired color is reached.
- Spread icing on the cookies with an offset spatula, or put it in a piping bag with various tips to draw.
- Decorate your cookies to your heart’s content!
