Antonia74, How do you store your iced cookies? I made some cookies the other day and just have them on the counter in a sealed plastic container... will they get too soft? Can I freeze them after icing?
No, don't freeze after icing!! The icing wants to be as dry as possible...but moisture forms after you remove that icing from the fridge or freezer. I make them up to a week in advance for the client and store them in pizza boxes, out of the sun & humidity...or I package them individually in cellophane. The gingerbread cookies last for weeks because there is not as much butter in the recipe as a Sugar Cookie has. I only make my icing with meringue powder too, not fresh egg whites.
Great job on these antonia74 !! they're so cute!!
Thanks! I think the birthday boy had a little red MG car that was his pride and joy...so his wife ordered these for his party!
can you share your recipe for the icing,,,,,, i have tried to make iced cookies before, to mail to my sister, but they dont harden up enough to make the trip
leopardgirl, use my tutorial in the articles section!
Antonia74, all your work is amazing!! I have just been looking through your photo file. Where did you get your race car cutter, my son loves "lightening Mcqueen and this shape looks very similar to his character.
