Well my cookies that I made for my cookie bouquet order are getting worse by the minute. The gold stars are VERY blotchy, I don't know why they look so bad. I can only assume it's from all the coloring I had to add??? Anyways, the only thing I can think of is to top them with yellow/gold sprinkles and hope for the best. But since they are already iced and dry, what's the best way to add the sprinkles on? Scrape off the icing and put on new then immediately add the sprinkles or is there a way to add the sprinkles to the icing already there?

I can't believe NOTHING has gone right with these cookies!

you can mix 50/50 light corn syrup and water, brush lightly over cookie and then sprinkle. HTH

I agree with Tatorchip, that will fix it. That happens to me with red food coloring all the time, not sure why either

you can also try a little bit of piping gel to get the sanding sugar to stick.

or... paint on a thin layer of the same color icing (really, thin) and then sprinkle with the sanding sugar.
