Hi all, I have made some NFSC and they came out wonderful, but the problem I'm having is with the RI.. I can't seem to decorate the cookies to well the RI is either to runny or to hard.. HELP.. Lol What should I do?
If it's too runny, you can add some sifted powdered sugar. Too hard add small amount of water at a time until consistancy is what you want. Are you flooding cookie or outlining? For flooding there is a 10 second rule.. when you lift spoon of RI and let it run back into bowl, it should take 10 seconds to blend back in. I outline then flood with same consistancy. If I'm doing detail after flood, I let it dry then I use a little thicker consistancy to outline detail.. Hope that helps ..
Yes this does help, I have no problem with flooding it's the darn outline and detail that is kicking by butt.. LOL
I have a plastic container of sifted PS near by when I decorate cookies, Just so I can thicken it if I need to for the detail.
I'm newer to decorating cookies too. It takes a few times of mixing the icing and trying it out. You'll get the feel for it.
