I'm using Icing images edible circles on top of Royal iced cookies. I used them per directions." lay icing circle on wet royal icing" My problem is; as they dry the edges lift and by the time they are dry the whole border has lifted. It lifts the royal icing up with it and I just don't like the look. It makes it difficult to make the border look good even when I go back over it with a royal icing border. I would like it to be flat. Any suggestions??
I'll give you some ideas you might try, but I have not tried the myself o it know if they will work. Let the royal icing dry on the cookie before applying the image. Then lightly mist or use a damp paint brush to add just enough water to attach the image. Or paint he back of the image with a thin layer of flood icing and attach to the dry royal icing on the cookie. Something I have seen others do is paint the back of the image with clear gel, then stick it on dry cookie. Good luck. Let us know what you end up with that works.
Thank you for your help Denise, I'll definitely give it try. It hasn't been working on a wet cookie so I think your advice is great
I always use piping gel, water alone never holds it down, and at times it might still lift a little ,I'll then put a thin fondant border to hold it down. Royal icing is very strong ,so I think it'll be the best. Let royal icing dry on cookie and add another thin layer to stick the edible image.
Thank you for your reply solascakes, I'll give it a try. Appreciate your feedback!!
