piping bags

2017 Year in Food May – Food Color

IMG_2681Of course once you have a level of comfort with something, as I started to have with meringue cookies, then I wanted to do something more exciting with them (except for some of the flavors they are a rather boring off-white color).  For my friend Jill’s wedding, I wanted to create something that honored her but I realized quickly that color creation was a whole skill unto itself, that I wasn’t going to master in a few hours.  I did manage a pretty good green and purple, which were the colors of the logo of the first company we worked at together.  I created a rudimentary double-pastry bag from two small and one large zip-loc bag, and experimented with the shape, height and colors.   I think I got about 25 usable ones at the end.
