Make the white icing by mixing the icing sugar with one tablespoon of warm water – the icing should be thick to allow you spread it on the cookie with a knife. Don’t make it too runny – if you do, add more icing sugar.
Divide the icing into separate batches and add different food colouring so you can decorate your cookies.
