I baked NFSC and used Antonia's RI- and they looked great yesterday. Today, however, my red has little black spots in it! I used Wilton no taste red because that's all I had....I have 50 more cookies to decorate tonight...what do I need to do differently???
I guess this hasn't happened to anyone else....any advice at all before I start on the rest of these cookies??????
I'm no expert by any means but my first thought would be to mix up the color...then, allow it to set several hours or overnight even(if time permits that is) then, restir. If that didn't work, and I was unable to acquire any other colorant, I'd probably just say...it is what it is(and what it is I don't know) and leave it at that(if it didn't have to be that design with that color, I'd entertain the thought of doing a different design and/or color)
Thanks- they are Christmas cookies, so I'll go heavy on the green. It's just very strange. Hopefully the other colors will be different.
Are there flecks showing up in the bowl/container of red icing as well?
found a thread where some have had the same problem...
YAYY! Thanks so much! I'm just thrilled that it's not just something wacky that I did. I'll beat the fire out of my RI next time and see how it turns out. I am serving these cookies tomorrow night at a cookie swap at my house. I really wanted them to look beautiful...but there are worse things. Thanks again!
