I followed the directions from linedancer and it worked great! Nothing like using that RI glue I mailed them 2 my sis so I'll know in a day or two how they arrived. And I agree, your penguins are so adorable.. Thanks again
Another method is to put the sticks in the cookie right after you take the cookies out of the oven. As they cool, the cookies contract around the stick. I started using this method after I scorched a couple cookie sticks in the oven. Ha.
I used the dough roll technique with the sticks (I gotta work on that). I forgot to turn the pan of rattles over so their patch was quite pronounced. I used the humped side as the front to see how bad it looked if iced...it looks a lot better with icing on it than had I left it as the back.
