I am new to cookie making and have had some luck making cute decorated sugar cookies. I want to make some "thank you" cookies for someone and would also like to be able to put our Daughter's names and others on cookies. I have terrible handwriting and it seems to carry over into trying to write on cookies. I use royal icing and have tried a variety of tips but nothing improves it. How do people make the writing on their cookies look so cute?
In short, practice, practice, practice! However, there are "cheats". There are stamps you can use and trace, you could put wax paper over letters, trace, let dry and place on wet icing, or you could place cut fondant.
Thank you- I have never tried the stamps- do they work pretty well? Any particular brands you like? Maybe I can use those while I practice. I'm having a hard time getting the consistency just right too I think.
Oh yeah, consistency is really key! There are so many different kinds of stamps, I don't have a favorite. You could even pick a simple design from a regular craft store and use an edible marker to get a faint impression and just go over it.
