ICE CREAM CONE
Step 1: Outline the cone with tan outline icing with a #2 tip on the piping bag. Using your scribe or an edible marker make 2 lines for the heart on the top ice cream scoop. Outline both scoops of ice cream with white piping icing.
Step 2: Fill the cone with tan flood icing. Start from the outside and work your way toward the middle of the cookie. Fill in the ice cream scoops with white flood icing. For the top ice cream scoop add rainbow sprinkles when flood icing still wet.
Stop and allow your cookie to dry in front of a fan for 1-2 hours before flooding the next section.
Step 3: Outline the ice cream cone and add the diagnal lines for the cone.
Using brown piping icing to outline a “chocolate” drip at the top of the big scoop. Fill in with brown flood icing.
Using white piping icing and a paintbrush piping icing at the bottom of the scoop, then take the paintbrush and lightly brush towards the top of the scoop. Dot the icing with the tip of the paint brush to get the realistic look of ice cream.
Lastly, use red piping icing to outline the heart on top of the scoop and fill with red flood icing.
