Hoping you expert cookie people can help me!
I'm starting my first venture into cookies, and decided I wanted to try Toba's Glace first. But I have a few questions about it:
- How long does it take for the flood layer to dry before I can add details?
- Can details be added with Toba's Glace? I noticed a lot of people use RI for details, but I was hoping to avoid making two kinds of icing.
- Does the glace dry hard enough to add details with pens/markers? Does it dry hard enough to packaged on cello bags and then stack? If so, how long does this type of drying time take?
Thanks so much for any guidance and assistance!!! Merry Christmas!
Depending on the type of details, they can be added fairly quickly. By the time I've iced all the cookies, the first ones can have details added. The icing will dry firm enough to write on it with food color pens, usually by waiting for it to set overnight. You can stack or bag after about 24 hours dry time as well. If you want to add details with more icing, thicken the glace with powdered sugar until it's almost a peanut butter consistency (thanks to kneadacookie for that description!). All my outlining is done with this. Good luck!
Thanks for the detailed response (and the PB consistency tip!)!
