I need a good glaze recipe .
like for sticking fondant to a cookie or like decorating icing?
Umm decorating but ill take both! Im new to this!
The most commonly used decorating icing here is Antonia74's Royal Icing here:
A lot of people also use Toba Garrett's Glace Icing:
For Antonia's, I add lemon juice to cut the bitterness and musty smell from the meringue powder, and some light corn syrup to thin it and make it shinier as it dries. Can't give exact amounts, just until it smells and looks the way I want it to.
If you use Toba's, it has a sweeter taste and a softer consistency, but you have to let it dry a LOT longer between flooding and piping details and some people get ''clouds'' in the large flooded areas.
For sticking fondant to cookies you can make a sieved jam glaze. 1 C preserves of choice, 1/2 C water. Cook together to a simmer, then strain and allow to cool. Refrigerate in an airtight container until ready to use. To use, brush lightly onto baked, cooled cookie, then lay fondant cutout over it.
Thank you so much !
