I was thinking I wanted white on white snowflake cookies and would add some slight bit of sparkle dust. However, some of the white on white looks lost and the overpiping doesn't stand out. I wasn't sure if I wanted to make them blue or not with white piping. Then I wondered about whether there was like an edible (obviously) spray in a can or for airbrush that I could get in pearl or silver and spray ever so lightly on the base and then add the top piping and sparkles? I may put a silver dragee in the center and some white pearl nonpareils in addition.

I don't want to paint them with luster dust. I will try to use a glace icing but revert to RI if I have to...

Any feedback is very much appreciated. Thank you!!! icon_lol.gif

Could you brush on super pearl dust after the cookies dry completely?

You could do a super pale blue, such as the one in this photo from the gallery.

This one looks like the cake sparkles were put onto the flooded area, then the overpiping was done. That might be an idea for you.

Check out the snowflake in the center bottom of this pic.

Here are some other ideas.

Thanks so much! Some really good ideas in there. It does look pretty with the detail piping covered in sparkles. It doesn't get lost on the white cookie. The very pale blue is pretty too. Last url has some good design ideas. You are so nice! Happy Holidays...Pat thumbs_up.gif

One of the attachments in previous post to help me had a beautiful cookie that was iced, dried and then airbrushed with pearl blue. Can this be done to a glace covered cookie?
