I can never get my final outline as thin as yours, even with a #1 tip. Is there a trick to it? You say it's the consistency of peanut butter. I don't think I can squeeze that out of a #1 tip icon_cry.gif

Wow! They both look great, but the one with the outline really stands out. I always want to do the outlines! My hands just aren't steady enough yet and they turn out looking like crap. I just have to practice more!

Just a quick note to let anyone who is interested know: I got the template uploaded for the gumball machine. It's in my photos...or you can go to Misc./Patterns, sketches, templates.

luv2bake6, can't wait to see what picture you want to post!

GeminiRJ,

Thank you for blessing us with your talents.

You said that you used "modified Toba's Glace" on your Gnome cookies. Would you be willing to share this recipe for icing?

Thanks for your time in answering our inquiries. I can only imagine how busy you must be. :0)

The recipe shows up on the first page of this thread. If you have any questions, feel free to send me a PM.

I love your lessons! I have a bunch of "cookie" books, but this forum is fun and educational in itself.

Do you use squeeze bottles or bags for the flooding and outlining?

I use bags. I'm just "old school", I guess. It's what I'm used to after all those years of cake decorating. I feel I have better control using a bag versus the squeeze bottle. I know that other decorators use the squeeze bottles with amazing skill...I'm just not one of them!

I'm going to try a bag for the thicker "detailing" -- but what a mess I made using the bags for flooding. The bottles seem to work fine for me for that.

I'm with ya on this! No matter how tiny of a tip I use, I can't get that fine line. It's so hard to squeeze peanut butter out, that my hands starts shaking and my lines get screwy!

Is the secret in using a glace rather than RI?
