does this icing dry shiny and hard to bag and stack......like the wilton cookie icing, that is just too expensive...Need a shiny icing for cookies but will use a royal icing for details and outlining. thanks in advance
I've never used this recipe, but I do know that 1 lb. powdered sugar is approximately 4 cups. For the 3/8 cup measurement, use 1/4 cup plus 2 Tablespoons.
As far as whether or not it dries shiny, I can answer yes because I read it in another thread on here today!
I hope that someone who has actually used this glace can give you more help.
I use it on all my cookies and it dries shiny for me. HTH
Yes, 1 lb of conf sugar is 4 cups.
What i do for the 3/8 cup is measure 1/8 cup in a liquid measuring cup, 3X.
I always ues Toba's Glace it dries nicely and taste good. A few tips, make sure you to add at least 20 drops of white coloring and be sure you let you cookies dry somewhere 'not cold' cold makes it dry blotchy.
Also, try not to move the cookies once set out to dry in order to avoid cracking.
A lot of people get ''clouds'' when they color is dark, so you should add some Brite White food coloring when you're mixing it to prevent this. I add about 15 drops to the whole batch.
How do you apply it? Just spread it on, or do I need to pipe it?
