I was out at the local Michaels today and saw the Wilton cookie icing. I gnerally make my own but I would like one that drys firm for packaging and tasted great as well. Just wondered if anyone had tried the wilton.
Haven't tried that...
But here's a super thread on cookie bouquets:
(has threads on icings/glaze, stacking & more)
Thanks Jan, do you know anything about a recipe called baby deas icing?
No, I'm sorry but I've never heard of that
I have tried it many moons and cookies ago ... not a fan and don't remember if it hardened up enough to stack. I like Wilton's pouring glaze for cookies but it took FOREVER to dry enough to stack. Good tasting and shiny when dry.
GetFrosted....where do you find the Wilton pouring glaze? I haven't seen it at the local stores.....I'm in Bowmanville, ON.
I know Bowmanville well - used to date a guy there a long time back. The Wilton Poured cookie glaze is something you have to make - the recipe is in every yearbook. If you need it, please PM me and I'll send it along.
since I just "accent" my cookies with icing after I decorate them with fondant. I like the convinience of using the Wilton cookie Icing they sell at Michaels.
I make a little paper cone and use it that way.
how do you get the fondant to stick to the cookie?
And can you color the wilton's cookie Icing with the regular wilton food coloring?
Thanks so much
Thanks GetFrosted......I think I was having a "Sunday moment". I know exactly what the wilton recipe is. I was thinking along the lines of something that you purchase. Do you know of any supply stores for specialty items other than Goldas Kitchen?
I've bought it from Copper Gifts and I love it! I'm a newbie at cookie decorating so maybe my opinion doesn't hold much weight, but I can put food coloring directly into the container and change it to anything I want. After my cookies dry for a day, I can stack them. They become completely hard and perfect I think. Wilton sells a tip converter for the top so that you can use your tips with it. The only thing I didn't like was the already mixed red one, the frosting isn't a solid color like white frosting, it's more of a clear frosting that's vibrant red.
while my cookie is baking I use the same cookie cutter to cut the thinly rolled fondant, and as soon as they come out of the oven I place the cut fondant onto the cookie.
Let the cookie cool.
Then I warm the bottle of Wilton cookie icing in my micro and pour a bit into a parchment paper cone to do my accents.
The icing tends to go on sale after the holiday...red and green after X-mas..that kind of thing..so I stock up then..lol. I usually don't need to much because after my cookies cool I Airbrush them...I just use the icing for accenting them.
Since my cookies are basically posted in the Naughty section you can pm me for clear instructions...dont' want to be offending anyone.
When I do my edible cookies, I do something else, I sent Jackie a tutorial on that but if you guys send me your email addy or pm me I can send you the word document.
