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!
Wow those are nice..are the little candy swirls on the cookies part of the EI?
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.
Thank you for sharing that! (sorry to hijack the thread) From the picture, the design loooked like a picture of the peppermint swirl candies..grin~~
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.
