Does anyone use this icing? I love everything about it EXCEPT... every time I ice with it, I get little tiny cracks that you can totally see! I don't move the cookies from where I ice them, so it's not that I'm jarring them or anything. I just can't figure out why this is happening. I tried to email Pam directly, but she hasn't answered me yet, and I'm donating 100 cookies next Saturday.
I'd appreciate any advice!!
Can anyone please help me?
Sorry... I dont use that recipe. I use Toba's glace....
I also use a version of Toba's glace but the trick is not to move them at all once they're iced to avoid those wrinkles
this is very close to toba's glace, but just smaller porportions.
as you already know, the not moving is key, but i would also add that 10-15 minutes mentioned to dry is only surface drying and it is still wet underneath...so i try not to move for at least a couple hours.
the other thing i find critical to getting a good finish is the temp of the room they are drying in. glace does not like cold. dry them in a nice warm room with a stable temp and that should help you also avoid the cracks.
hope this helps!
It also helps to not apply the icing too thick. I know I've had the problem with the cracks when it's too thick, especially when I moved the cookie too soon.
