Hello- I just tried to stencil using royal icing and a mist spray and it was all pretty bad! I think at least part of the problem is that the top of the cookies aren't perfectly flat. I used the techniques described in a previous question I posted using painter sticks when I rolled the dough. The recipe I use does not spread a lot but the top of the cookies do puff up a bit. Anyone have any tips? TIA
I use my fondant smoother to press them flat when I take them out of the oven.
Oh! Good idea- we have one of those. Will try that. Thanks so much!
you could ice the bottoms if they will sit flat for you upside down

I have never tried to stencil on cookies, but these don't rise much
