I spent the whole day yesterday making sugar cookies.They all came out great and I decorated most of them.This morning I noticed that a few are discolored in patches almost like the butter in the cookies has seeped through the icing.Why has only some done this and what can I do to prevent this.It looks sort of ugly....

I don't know if this is what you mean but if they are like small spots I have heard that where the salt isn't mixed in or dissolved it will show light spots.

And it doesn't look like it's food colouring that isn't mixed well...?

When you say discoloured, can you describe the colour?

Kiddie can you post a pic of these spots? That might help.

Well it won't take the spots out but maybe it will prevent them for future cookies.

KiddieKakes - I read on a similar post that maybe the cookie wasn't cooled enough? That's my unprofessional, not-even-close-to-amateur thought on this.

What were you using to decorate - royal icing? Is there any chance you got some grease into the mix somehow. Is it just one colour affected or whole cookies?

Okay, I see the boot and cowboy hat cookies. To tell you the truth, they look like a really worn pair of boots and hat! They still look cute. I love your other cookies. Your detail is awesome!!

Very nice work on the cookies.

Can I ask what method of filling them in you used? Pastry bag or bottle?
