So this week I need to do 100 toy story cookies of the characters faces. I do not have a KopyKat so Ive been trying to think of how to get each character uniform and equal to the last. I thought about doing a royal icing transfer so when i googled it i only found very little information on how to do it. Some said to piped the image on wax paper, let dry 24hrs then just plop it on top of the flooded icing when ready. Is that it? Anyone else have any tips or experience with doing RIT on cookies?

I do transfers off of wax paper, works great, but very fragile so make extras! icon_smile.gif

I agree with spectra, make sure they dry at least overnight in a nice dry room, with little humidity!
One time, I made some on a hot humid night (with air on) let them sit overnight & through the day, they never did dry completely.
But that was the only time they didn't dry. So print out the reverse or mirror image, place wax paper over, pipe starting with details and ending with backing. Let dry, gently pull paper off & attach to cookie with some RI. As stated by Spectra, make plenty of extras!
Good luck!
