I would like to do some basketweaving on a cookie. I don't want to use merengue powder royal icing. Want something that will dry though. Would Toba's Glace work? Recommendations?

The glaze is probably too thin to hold up to basketweave. but give it a try on a work surface to see for yourself. who knows?

I agree, it would want to run together and spoil the effect you're after. Look on Karen's Cookies website ( for her meringue buttercream, which she says crusts really firm. I bet that would work well for basket weave.

I would think a candy clay or fondant would be your best bet for doing basketweave. You could cut strips, then weave them together, making the pattern bigger than what you need. Use your cookie cutter to cut out the shape you need, then apply it to the warm cookie. Or do the basketweave right on the cookie and trim the excess.
