Hi! Do any of you flood cookies so it covers the entire top surface... like put them on a rack and pour it over and let it run off so there's no cookie showing? Any tips?
I've been having trouble getting a nice round shape and I have to put borders on all my cookies to hide it. But I'd like to do some cookies without borders, too.

Thanks! Maria

anyone? does anyone dip the tops of their cookies instead of flooding with a piping bag/tip? Looking for tips!

Thanks! Maria

I outline my cookies and then flood...

I dip my round cookies sometimes. I get a small bowl a little bigger than cookie and dip it, then I use my finger to go around the edge to make it smooth and not drip. If I don't go around edge the drips stick to cookie rack and it is a messy edge.

Good Luck

sorry I can't help... I've never dipped, I outline and flood.

Hi Maria,
I haven't dipped, but I've had some success with keeping the icing consistency a bit thicker and using a spoon to spread. Depending on the shape of the cookie you can get a pretty even edge. Then I give it a bit of a shake, right away, so that the icing has a smooth/even finish as it dries. I found this to be quicker than outlining and flooding.

thanks! I tried dipping just the front the other day, but I think my icing was too thin or the top of the cookie wasn't flat enough because it kept running off, even after I ran my finger around the edges.
the spoon is next! thanks for the tip!

I've made the Wilton stacked cookie Christmas Tree several times and you pour the icing over the cookies. I preferred to set the cookies on a dixie cup pedestal and then poured the frosting over the cookie. As the icing started to set up I used a spatula to smooth off the drips. Hope this helps.
