I noticed that some of the visitors like the glossy finish look of “Color Flow” technique, but some think it is complicated to make. 

With time I think “Color Flow” becomes easier as you get a hold of it.  I really suggest the color flow technique for decorating cookies.

However, you can also use the same color flow technique by watering down your Royal Icing recipe.  The result will be similar to color flow, just opaque (i.e., not a shiny finish).

You can also use star tip decoration.  I use royal icing for cookies because the buttercream doesn’t really dry as well and can make the cookie soft.  Also, royal icing and color flow work best if you want to wrap the cookie in plastic bags. 

The blue bat picture below shows a cookie (blue bat) decorated with royal icing using startip technique.  The pumpkin cookies in the back used watered down royal icing. **Double click on picture to enlarge**
