In a bowl with the powdered sugar work in the half and half with a spoon until the icing begins to form. At first it seems there might not be enough liquid but if you keep working it the icing will form.

Use a toothpick to move some of the gel food coloring into the icing. Continue to work the icing with your spoon.

If you want to use multiple colors or make more icing just double the batch and seperate the colors into separate bowls.

To spread the icing on the fully cooled cookies we used a small silicon spatula. We put a thick coat on each cookie and then put sprinkles on, or used a toothpick with some of the food coloring to draw designs on the cookies.

The thick icing will harden quickly so you should work fast.
