Also, do you decorate with royal or glaze? Thanks again, will try again this weekend!
Just 5 or 10 minutes of resting should do it.
I always decorate with either mmf, candy clay, royal, or white chocolate....I haven't had good luck with the glace icings (they never seem to dry enough for me! and I make a mess of the cookies lol)
more often than not my customers seem to go for the royal (I think that's just what they associate decorated cookies-like Christmas cookies, etc. with)
When I can (like if they say "whatever you think") I try to use fondant or even candy clay if the design works with it (like if the background is all 1 color) because it's so much quicker and nobody has ever said they didn't like the flavor yet either. So it just depends on the customers preferences as to what I use!
