The cookies are cooled and the icing is just put on but the sugar is also sticking to the cookie, not what I want. Can't get it off because of the detail of the cookie. Is the cookie maybe not 110% cooled? Did some the other day and no problems. . . .hence, why I still hate cookie decorating.
(I'm on my way to your house, Bonnie. . if you aren't home then I am making a road trip to Susan's )
I get that also.
I just let them dry and hit them with a small blast of canned air. Sugar stays where it is supposed to and gets blown away from where it's not!
It only takes a short quick blast. Make sure you are not too close to the cookie and that your icing is completely dry.
Hope this helps.
Thanks Cookie. . . I wound up letting them sit and just took a chance with a dry pastry brush, worked pretty well
