Royal Icing Transfer Bleed Fix!

I’m making 200 cookies for a friend’s son’s Bar Mitzvah and ran into an issue with my RI (royal icing) transfers bleeding! I knew about dark colors bleeding but these were white on yellow so I was surprised (and seriously bummed). I think my transfers were too thin. But . . . fixed them and thought I’d share in case anyone is looking for a fix in the future. It’s not perfect, but pretty good and certainly fine for a slew of teenagers! After the cookies were completely dry, I mixed up some 12...Read More...

Bagging Cookies with Edible Papers

Hi, I make a shortbread cookie. I then ice it with royal icing and let it dry overnight. I apply the edible image using either Crisco, or piping gel. Around the edges I use either light corn syrup or piping gel to add the sprinkles. I let that dry overnight before putting them in a sealed bag. My problem: a few days after bagging, the cookies start to look wet. Almost as if I didn't let them dry enough (overnight I thought was long enough). I have attached a photo to show you what is...Read More...
