I just made my first attempt at decorating cookies with RI. The only thing I am dissatisfied with is that after flooding, you can still see the piping. I thought it would blend together more. Does anyone have any tips on how to make the piping and flooding appear more unified??
you have to do it quickly......once you get more comfortable you can just flood without piping first...that's what I prefer (I take the easy way out lol)...I get my royal the consistency of elmer's glue and I use a little plastic baby spoon, I put a blob on the cookie and use the spoon to spread it evenly to the edges and around the shape I'm after.......works perfectlly.
Seriously khalstead? I love that idea
I do it the same way Khalstead does it for large areas. I have an old demitasse spoon that works well. Even on the small areas, I never outline unless I need a contrasting color for the outline. I just put some RI in a bag and flood the area.
wow! I'll have to try that.
I also like the idea of outlining in one color and flooding in another, but when I did mine, some of my piping showed and some didn't (the flodding spilled over the edges). Maybe it was too thin?
