Egg Glaze

IMG_8062Hello, I made some Christmas baubles for friends and family this year. I have decided to try using Julia's recipe for egg glaze rather than royal icing because I wanted the baubles to look shiny. All seem to go well except the glazed baubles felt greasy!  I wiped off the grease with kitchen paper several times before decorating. But the finished product looks more waxy than shiny!

Has anyone else tried egg glaze?  Did they turn out greasy?

I'm not sure where you got "my" recipe for egg glaze. I've only used egg glaze a few times myself, and used a fairly standard formulation of versions found online. I can't claim it as "my" formulation, but it wasn't greasy (I've never wiped any grease off it) and turned out very shiny.

Hi Julia

I got it from your video on YouTube for contoured cookies. I used the ratio of 1 egg yolk to 1 tsp milk and put in a low oven. However because my sister is lactose intolerant I have used soya milk. I wonder if that is what has made the difference!

Can't say, as I haven't rigorously tested this glaze (a compilation of standard washes) even with regular milk. I tried it once for that video, and experienced some cracking that I never resolved (as I noted in the video), so I can't offer much more assistance here. I just didn't find it greasy.
