How do you keep the flow icing on the cookies and not have it dripping over the sides?
I've seen some awesome work here, but i can't figure out how to do THAT!!
I work with glace and use one consistency of icing. It has taken some time and practice to figure out how much icing will cover the cookie without running over the edge It's much less that I thought at the beginning! And now, I can eyeball it and know if it's going to run over then do some quick damage control by scooping up some of the icing with a small knife before it runs over. Also, I pipe and then blend with a knife and I always blend from the outside in to pull the icing away from the edges a bit.
I pipe an outline around the outer edge of the cookie first using stiffer icing. Then fill in.
