Hey guys I'm a newbie and want to try decorating cookies. I have tried a couple but it doesn't seem to work correctly. Can someone please explain flooding to me. I have thined my RI down. It's not runny enough to run off the cookie but does move well. Just doesn't look right to me. I have also been outlining and then after I cover I seem to have to outline again.
Can someone please help. I feel so retarded.
I also have a question about packaging. I live in a small town and only have wal-mart. Any ideas where to find the bags or wraps for cookies? Thanks everybody.
You could try a glace icing which is much easier for flooding and usually dries shiny. There are plenty of recipes on here....read the post 'before and after outlining' for some really great ideas.
As for the packaging, I just use the fold over sandwich bags. I tie the bottom with a pretty ribbon and you really can't even tell it's a sandwich bag!

I'm not sure what you mean by "it doesn't look right" - do you mean it's not drying smoothly? Can you post a picture to show us?
Here are some links to articles and threads that I think will be helpful to you in your cookie endeavors...

Hope that helps get you started!
