I am putting initials on cookies for a wedding. Using Royal icing and the seam is showing through making the cookies look UGLY!!!

How do you get the seam not to show???

I always run my finger slightly and gently around the edge and then put a dot of ri to act as a border.

I always put an RI border around mine, too. Makes them look more "finished." I also put on my images about an hour or two after I put on the royal icing, but very gently. I find that they "attach" better that way.

Is it a frosting sheet or waffer paper? Waffer paper edges always curl up and need a border.

I use frosting sheets, and sometimes they're difficult to get cleanly off the backing. So there's a bit of the edge showing, which I don't care for. So I always use a border.

I, too, always pipe some sort of border around the edges.

If the cookies are small enough and there's enough space between monograms on your frosting sheet, try covering the entire surface with edible image, all the way to the edges. That way, there's no seam.
