Sorry if this is a repeat, I did a search and didn't see anything.

I'm putting edible images on sugar cookies and was wondering what to put underneath the image to stick it to the cookie. Do I do an outline and flood as usual? If so, does the image go on immediately?

Thanks!

You can flood as usual. Once it has set, lightly moisten with water and apply your image. I use either a well-wrung paper towel or a fan brush to moisten.

Some people also use fondant, but you would still need a lite coating of the royal icing to make the fondant stick to the cookie and then lightly moisten the fondant to attach the edible paper.

Does anyone know if you can use edible images on GI?

I use glace.. I let dry about 12-18 hours before applying my image.
I brush a little vodka or tequila on the cookie and then put my edible image on.. And I wait another 12h to bag,

I let my RI set for about 2 hours, then put the edible image on top and gently smooth it out. some people have had trouble with wrinkling doing this, but I've never had that happen.
If my RI has already dried for 18-24 hours, I just brush a little clear corn syrup on the back of the image and smooth it on the cookie. But I do like the tequila idea I saw a couple of posts back! icon_biggrin.gif

Some people like to use a thin RI paint it on the cookies and then adhere the images immediately. But I too like the vodka idea!

I was wondering if it was possible to buy a "sample" pack with differents products to try.. I have an Epson nx415 but you are listing almost only canon and I was curious to try out because you have interesting sizes and product...

I'm sorry for the directness icon_redface.gif

I use royal icing, i let it dry completely, then i adhere image with vodka, using a paint brush.
i found that if i didn't let the RI dry completely, the image was gooey. good luck!

I always add my edible image to the wet icing, I flood the cookie and apply the image immediately. I let set for a couple of hours then I add the border. I let dry overnight if I want sanding sugar to the border. Waiting for the RI icing to dry then having to add water or some sort of edible adhesive adds a step that isn't necessary in my opinion. Note I use frosting sheets not wafer paper which needs to have the border added ASAP for the edges not to curl up.
