making cookies on a stick but not sure - Page 5

post #61 of 91
Thank you so much for this thread! icon_cool.gif I've always stuck the stick in before baking, but it's a toss-up whether it will support the larger cookies, so this method is ingenious...I also like the idea of the extra dough on the back of the stick for reinforcement if you go the baking-with-the-stick method.

You guys are great! thumbs_up.gif

Linedancer, they are truly amazing. I never thought about embossing around an edible image. Very creative!

I took another look at my cookies, I just want to add that on these, I dipped a patchwork cutter into luster dust before I embossed them. You just need a little thin layer of dust on a piece of wax paper, dip in the embosser, tap off the extra dust and press into the fondant. I usually repeat dipping for every time I emboss, but you can get two pretty good images, if you don't want to dip every time. It's a little technique I use from time to time.

Edited to add: I think the embossing helps to give the cookie a finished look.

OMG I wish I had found this thread LAST week!! I've done cookies on a stick twice now and they were a PITA both times! The first time (like a year ago) I baked the sticks in the cookies, last week I glued the sticks on the back of baked cookies with royal icing...either way, my complaint was that I could only get 6 cookies with sticks per cookie sheet to decorate...do you KNOW how many cookies sheets that is ? This way will be a time saver, space saver, and heartache saver I'm sure - the other issues I was having was with the bake-in method, the cookie sticks would slide around once in bouquets...with the royal glue method, they would fall off or the cookie would break after handling...this is AWESOME!! Thank you shiney!

For those of you interested in watching a video on taping the stick to the bag (Shiney's method icon_wink.gif ), there is a great one on Karen's Cookies website: http://www.karenscookies.net/shop//index.php?_a=viewDoc&docId=70

Is it wrong of me to want to hug Shiney?!

Great idea! I have to make 140 cookies this weekend!

Hey, Gang, I've been away from CC for a while, didn't know this thread was still going! Wow, Karen's Cookies did a great vid, that is how I do it, but I add the step of hot glue, I've found sometimes bigger cookies need both. I LOVE this method because I always have the stick'd bags on hand, and don't have to decide they need a stick (or what size) before I bake, and baking, deorating, storing, etc, all much easier.
Thank you all for the kind comments icon_smile.gif
Yes, Cristy, a virtual hug is welcome anytime!

this is one of the most useful threads I have found on CC - and there are a LOT of good threads!!! Shiney - have you ever had the hot glue start to melt the bag? I tried this method last night - I have cookie bags that I purchased from Nashville wraps, and the glue melted the back of the bag and then stuck to the front side of the bag....I did a combination of unplugging the glue gun on and off to keep it cooler, and I stuck those little round cardboards that are for minicakes inside the bag to insulate the front of the bag from the hot glue on the back of the bag....it worked, but I am wondering how to avoid this? Is it my hot glue gun - a lousy gun - it doesn't have any settings for high or low....or do I need to buy a better cookie bag? Either way, this method, I agree, is brilliant. Not only is it a time saver, and cookie sheet saver....but I can make my cookies regular thickness instead of fat to accomodate a stick - so much more elegant in my opinion.
