HI everyone! I was wandering if y'all could help me out? I'm not that familiar with cookie decorating, I mainly do cakes :-) But, I just got this order for these cookies for a wedding. What type of icing should I use to get that smooth, chic look? Does anyone happen to have a recipe for it? *

Well, this will get you started.........  Both glace and royal have their places.  Try them both.

^^^ Those are both great.  Getting the smooth surface won't be difficult with the flooding technique but the writing on the cookies will take some practice.  Getting the consistency right will be key.  Writing with a liquid consistency is really tough.

Just starting with glaze - Toba Garrett's recipe.  I still find it too thick with 6 Tbsp milk and corn syrup.  I add more milk.  Should I be adding more corn syrup as well?  Any suggestions?  Thanks.
