I have to make Sarah kay cookies, icon_confused.gif can i use the FBT technique on cookies, over royal icing??
im afraid that the buttercream would flow down, (im doing cookies on a stick) maybe not, but i've never used it before.
can i use the same technique with royal icing?
thank you so much for your kind of desperate right now icon_cry.gif

I just did chocolate transfers on cookies this weekend. What I found was that they seemed a little thick because I wasn't thinking about that as I was building the different colors. Then I didn't know what to do with the edges. I ended up melting them a bit in the microwave and using a paintbrush to drag the edge of the transfer to the edge of the cookie. They turned out okay.

Anywho, I'm sure either buttercream or royal would work. Just make sure to think ahead about the thickness and how to deal with the edges.

I've never done FBT,not sure how that would go on Cookie pops. But I have done RI transfers. Just trace and fill in picture on wax paper..but it will take longer to dry..of course do not put in fridge or freezer to set..

Good Luck

On cookies I use RI, so I would transfer on to that. I've never done BC on cookies , but some do rolled BC or reg BC.

If you need a picture to follow I'd use the above techinque (which can be done in royal icing.)

If you can freehand, then I'd just pipe and fill in directly on the cookie.

You can also use fondant on colors, so that could be another option for ya.
