Im goign to make cake shaped wedding cookies...
Can I freeze them if i make them with Royal icing? Im new to this, I was going to make the cookies and ice them, pipe the thicker icing around the edge, then fill in...
Any suggestions...do i do the detail work with the royal icing also...
If i use luster dust does that just get brushed on...sorry,,newbie here
Yes, you can freeze your cookies after you have decorated with RI. I do it all the time and have never had any problems. When freezing your cookies, use an airtight container and put layers of freezer paper between your cookies.
When defrosting your cookies, there are two ways to do it. Each way seem to work for the person involved.
1) Leave the cookies in the container until defrosted.
2) Take cookies out and place them on a wire rack until defrosted.
The detail work can be done in RI or you could use fondant accents.
When I use lustre dust, I mix it with clear alcohol and then paint it on the parts that need it.
Hope this is helpful.
So do you paint the luster dust on before or after you freeze the cookies? Thanks!
I have painted them on and then frozen the cookies. Never had any problems when defrosting.
I make and fully decorate my cookies also and then freeze. I have also never had any problem.
I paint mine after the royal icing has dried, with a mixture of luster dust and (raspberry) vodka... I like to use the paintbrushes made with real hair... they tend to streak less.
I don't usually freeze mine if they've been decorated though. Great to hear all the freezing tips!
So you can pretty much paint the luster dust on before or after you freeze them. Good to know! Thanks everyone!!
