DIWALI ~ Satisfying Cookie Decorating | THE GRACEFUL BAKER

Please enjoy this set I made to honor Diwali, also know as the Festival of Lights! Stay tuned for the real time tutorial with voiceover to be posted soon. I will also be posting YouTube shorts of all of the designs so that I can share the research that I did on each symbol. I personally do not celebrate the holiday so I had a lot of research ahead of me 🙂

Speaking of research, I want to give a HUGE shoutout to Sonia Patel over on Instagram who was my Consultant in Chief for this set. She advised on the themes and designs, the copy and so more! It’s always really important to me that I consult with a member of the community as I execute the set. And, yes, I gave her most of the cookies! Last I heard they were sitting in her freezer awaiting Diwali. Happy Diwali!

Real time tutorial with voiceover: coming soon!

– Sterling Pearls (metallic dusts like gold): https://bit.ly/3AN5Quh
– DiamonDust (edible glitter!!): https://bit.ly/3sqtZnF
– Elite color (powdered food coloring that’s great for painting and dry dusting): https://bit.ly/3xVsb7l
– Master Elites (highly pigmented powders for coloring icing…a MUST for red and black!!): https://bit.ly/3k1L8Af
***Please note: my LEMON royal icing recipe does NOT work with all of the Master Elite colors due to the acidity of the lemon juice — a VANILLA (non-lemon) recipe is best used for the Master Elite pinks, otherwise I use all of their other colors with my lemon recipe (I use Wilton pink with my lemon recipe)
