I have cookies that have been fondant covered, but still need some royal icing detail work on them.
I screwed up. I need to ship them today.
Will piped royal icing set fast enough for me to do it now (noonish) and pack and ship by 7:00?
Or is there another icing I can use in it's place that might set faster?
chocolate would be faster i think. dont know if the royal would be firm enough to hold up to shipping... but i dont ship cookies!
fingers crossed for you!
Not sure chocolate would hold up to shipping in this weather.
You should be fine if you are just piping detail work. RI sets up pretty fast
If it isn't too late to see this, make your RI as thick as you can for piping and dry under a fan.
This is what I did:
I piped the icing using a #1 tip so it would be nice and thin. I was done by 12:30.
They are sitting at home right now - in the sun through a window, with 3 fans blowing on them.
Please be dry!!!!!!!!!!!! The truth will be told in 20 minutes.
Sounds like it should work, I was going to say use a heat lamp.
It did! I got home around 5:00, and they seemed perfectly set. I bagged them up and shipped them. She got them the next day, and said they were perfect.
I was in total panic mode because I had screwed up. She changed the delivery date on them, and I forgot to put it in my calendar. Luckily it all worked out. WHEW!
I'm so glad to hear that it worked out for you!
I have pictures in my iphone. Let me see if I can load them.
I haven't put this through my software yet, and it was just taken with my Iphone so it's a little dark, but here they are!
The customer asked for cookies for her daughter to pass out in school for their 8th grade graduation party. I guess they picked a theme for the party (never heard of that before) and it was "Funky 70s". I suggested it would be fun to do "tie-dye" style caps and diplomas.
She sent me an e-mail and said they arrived, they were perfect and they loved them.
