EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

For a more intense color, use paste food color instead of liquid food color.

To speed up the shaping process, press out a line of dough along the length of the cookie sheet near the edge. Cut the dough line into 4-inch pieces. Use toothpick to curve the top of each piece, forming the cane's handle. Continue process to fill the cookie sheet.
