A couple of notes about these cookies...
To make the Shamrock Guitars, you will need:
- sugar cookies put together to make a shamrock guitar, such as a shamrock and a broom handle,
- royal icing tinted with AmeriColor Super Black, dark & light green using Leaf Green, and Bright White,
- couplers and icing tips (#2 & #1)
- disposable icing bags
- squeeze bottles
Thin the black and green icings with water a bit at a time, stirring gently with a silicone spatula, until it is the consistency of a thick syrup. Cover with a damp dish towel and let sit for several minutes.
Stir the icings gently with a silicone spatula, popping any large air bubbles that may have formed on the surface. Transfer to squeeze bottles.
Fill in the green outline with the thinned green icing.
Let the cookies dry for at least 1 hour.
With a #2 tip, add the bar below the center of the guitar in black.
