Just wondering if there are any negative effects of shrink wrapping royal-decorated sugar cookies?
The only negative I can think of is they have a more mass-produced look when shrink wrapped. I use a heat sealer on my bags and it keeps them perfectly fresh.
Thank you for your reply hippiecac. How long do you give your heat sealed bags for freshness?
At least 2 weeks. It's the greatest gift my mother-in-law has ever given me! (ok, aside from husband lol)
The only negative thing I could think of is if you shrink it too tightly, the cookie breaks. Also, if the heat gun gets to close to the bags there is a possibility the royal icing may melt.
Ireneej71, I'm thinking that too. I might do a little experiment and hopefully those things don't happen. It just seems to me that the cookies would stay fresh longer if shrink wrapped.
