Step 1: Bake and cool cookies before decorating. Make sure cookies are fully cooled. If they are warm, the icing will run off of them. Make royal icing. Learn how to mix different consistencies of royal icing here>>
Prepare the following icing colors:
Step 2: Using piping consistency white icing, pipe 3 small triangles at the tips of the toes to create toenails. Wait for this icing to dry, 15-20 minutes.
Step 3: With piping consistency green icing, outline the entire shape except for the toes.
Step 4: Using piping consistency green icing, pipe some squiggles in the large bare area of the dino foot. This will help to give your flood some structure, so that the icing doesn't collapse as it cools.
Once you've piped some squiggles, fill with green flood icing.
Step 5: Using piping consistency orange icing, and while the flood is still wet, pipe some details on the dino foot. Piping wet icing onto a wet flood will blend the details a bit. If you'd like more dimension, wait 30-60 minutes for the flood icing to dry before piping details.
Look at how cute and colorful this dino foot is! Perfect for making an impact at your next dino-loving kid's party!
