If you're like me and tend to find baking easy but decorating a whole new world, it's okay because I've found a really cool tutorial that shows you how to ice cookies in a simple and easy way. Before, when I used to bake, I would normally just leave the icing out or slap it on in any way because it never turned out the way I wanted.

It was frustrating because I imagined this detailed pattern and when I attempted to do it, it just ended up into a blob of mixed colored icing. It looked terrible but it still tasted great so I guess I did end up wining in a way. Sort of. 

But to be completely honest, I really had no clue how to decorate anything. I never had the correct utensil and a cheap plastic bag was the way to go for icing. Boy, biggest mistake. Thankfully, there's the internet.

So, here's is a few tips that show you how to go about making your cookies look super pretty and pleasing to the eye. 

In this tutorial for icing cookies, you will find out how to make a simple white dotted pattern, a heart pattern, a marble design and finally, the lip designs which match perfectly for the occasion.
