When I'm on Etsy, I see a lot of sellers selling cookie cutters with impressions on it, so that it stamps the image onto the cookie. Can I use those cutters to decorate with royal icing? I've only used regular cookie cutters in the past, so I have no idea what the implications are of using royal icing on these types of cutters. Will the royal icing sink into the impression grooves? Does it make decorating sugar cookies easier or harder? I don't have a projector and I wanted to make Peppa cookies...and I was hoping that instead of having to freehand the faces, I could use the impressions to guide me? Could that work?
I don't know why not, even though I haven't tried it. You could do the lines first and if the icing sinks, pipe another layer on top of it.
It works! Pipe impressions first and let dry. Then flood the other stuff :)
Thanks all! I going to go for it! :)
