I am making sugar cookies this week and putting edible images of a large 30 on them. I have never used one (E.I's) before and wanted to get some input on what icing you would reccomend to put on the cookies prior to adding the images. I thought about using the cookie icing recipe that is in the wilton books. It goes on very smooth and dried firm (allmost like using color flow). If I use it should I apply the image immediately after putting the icing on and before it crusts? Any input would be appreciated. THANKS!

I use MMF and apply the ei with a little thinned corn syrup. You do not have to wait for the MMF to dry. Here is a sample done this way.

I should have mentioned that the client does not like fondant. I want to do a icing. Any other input?

ASimpleBaker - Thanks for your kind words. The swirls are made in the fondant by using tip #106. Just put it on your finger and press the tip into the fondant around the cookie.

BeeBoos-8599_ - Sorry your client doesn't like fondant, it is all I use. Maybe someone else will have some input about other icings.

You can use royal icing. Be sure it is thinned enough to put on with a paint brush. THen immediately put the image on and smooth it with your finger. Be sure your finger is dry or it will smear the image.
