So after my recent cookie disaster I regrouped and came up with these. This is nfsc with rbc and wilton frosting. Next time I will do RI for decor over the rbc. I really loved working with rbc. I think I will also roll the bc thinner . I'm not good at piping at all. Even my handwriting is horrible. Ne please tell me whats wrong so I can work on it next time.
They look pretty good for a beginner. it might help to use some for of impression on the RBC, then you have aline to follow.
And piping takes practice. Be sure your icing is right, and practice copying a design under some waxed paper. A smaller piping bag will give you more control.
I think you did well for a beginner (they look alot better than MY first ones!) and I know it's not as easy as it looks....I am STILL in the "beginner phase" and just don't have the extra time to practice.
I like the RBC too but tried MMF this month and really like it.
If you go too slowly the frosting will scribble a bit. Try going just a touch faster, and let the icing drop onto the cookie. The lines will be smoother.
If you hate your piping, try using the icing only as "glue". Pipe the design, then cover with things like mini-M&M's, red hots, dragees, etc. You'll get the practice (which will help you improve) and you'll get a nice-looking cookie, too! You're doing fine...it just takes patience and practice.
try using a squeeze bottle. It will give you more control!
