I love the ease and taste of MMF on cookies. This week, however, I made a simple pumpkin shape cookie and covered it with orange MMF. I then piped the veins and stems of the pumpkin in royal icing. I let the cookies dry overnight and when I packaged the cookies the next day the royal icing just crumbled off. Any thoughts on why this happened or advice on how to avoid it in the future would be appreciated. Thanks!

You might need to add a LITTLE more water to you RI so it sinks/melts into the MMF when the RI is too dry it crumbles off even atop a dry coat of RI icing.

I think I read somewhere that if you put just a small bit of corn syrup it makes the Royal Icing easier to use. Does anyone know if this works.

Thanks!
