Is it possible to apply one color of sanding sugar right next to another color of sanding sugar without getting the two mixed? I have some detailed designs in mind where I would want three colors of sugars covering the whole cookie. Any ideas?
I agree with the others, apply one color, let dry completely and then do the next color. Keep a small brush handy to brush off the new color off the old color (it won't stick if the old color is dry.) On my www I have a cookie that was designed to look like Gilda Radner and that bad boy takes three days to make just in drying time!
Is there a trick to putting sugar on the cookie. When I put the RI on and then put the sugar on it ran all down the sides of the cookie So after a couple of cookies did this I flooded the cookie and let it sit for a minute before adding the sugar. Is that the right way to do it? I didn't use and outline on the cookie so I was thinking that might have been why they ran
nickshalfpint - there are tricks to applying the sugars but you're definitely on the right track. When you apply the sugars it makes the icing heavier which makes it want to run more. So an outline helps a lot...sort of creates that edge needed to keep the fill icing in place. If you don't do an outline then letting your icing dry for a few minutes should help hold it in place...and your sugars will sparkle more because the sugars sit more on top of the icing rather than sinking in so much.
thanks to everyone else for the nice comments!!!!!!
