I've seen a few cookies on here with Wet on Wet design, and they look amazing! But how does it work exactly? Do you do the thicker icing directly on top of the wet flooded cookie?

When I do wet on wet, the icing is all the same consistency. I just pipe the designs right onto the still-wet flooded cookie.

this is important icon_smile.gif. the consistency of the flood and the icing you do your design with should be the same. when i know i am going to be doing wet on wet work, i make my all my icing a little thicker because it gives me better control...however, this does make it dry a little faster, so it's a trade-off.

you might also want to let your colored icing develop overnight to minimize bleeding from one wet color to another. i find this really helps with dark colors.
