Hi there... a good friend called me today asking if I could do 60 cookie pops for her daughter's birthday on Tuesday... ok so it is TOTALLY last minute, but I agreed to do it... her daughter is in some hip hop dance classes for the summer so she wants them to be decorated to look like graffiti... i have NO CLUE what to do... i thought maybe i could ice the cookies like i usually do and then use those spray paint colors that wilton uses? but would that even "dry" on the icing? or what about those food writers? i've never used them, but picked some up just in case... ANY advice or suggestions would help!

I don't know if it will help you but here are couple of sites where you can create graffiti icon_lol.gif
just type anything, In this case you can type her name and it will generate a graffiti font for it...Maybe you can trace the letters on your cookies and just fill them up with RI...hope this helps

hey charmed... well the actual graffiti is not really a problem... lucky for me my hubby was into graffiti in his teens and is actually still good at it after all these years (tested him earlier LOL)... he is willing to do some stencils for me OR try to decorate himself... i'm just wondering which way would be the right way to do it... i have some great ideas but i can't figure out which method... thanks for the suggestion! icon_smile.gif

Airbrush, spray colors, and food writers all worked for me when I used the Toba Garret glaze, and they dried beautifully. I don't know what you use to decorate with, but it should work fine anyway.

varika, thanks for the input! so glad that i can use both the sray and the food writes...

btw, i am using a basic icing recipe that i always use...1 cup conf. sugar, 2 TB milk, 2 tsp corn syrup, 1/4 tsp almond extract & then the food coloring... also, if you don't mind sharing....what is the Toba Garret Glaze?

You can find the recipe for the glaze in the recipe section. It dries hard on top and glossy, and it tastes delicious and is paradoxically soft when you bite into it. You drizzle it over the cookies--I used a gravy scoop--and let it harden overnight, and it's fine. I tinted it pale yellow, then airbrushed a stencil on, then used a food writer to put names on each one.
