July 2017

Hello, I offered, as a wedding gift, to send cookies to a nephew’s upcoming wedding in December. I am in the Middle East and the cookies are going all the way to America. I know from previous experience that the mail takes two weeks, but I want to have a margin of time in case I need to send replacements for broken cookies, etc. I only make cookies as surprise gifts for family and friends, usually for Christmas, so this is the first time I have a deadline. I want to make the cookies as early...Read More...

Coloring Not Sticking to Cookies When Painting?

Hello, all! I am new here but very happy to have found you. I was inspired to start painting cookies after seeing Julia's videos but I'm having some trouble!

This has been incredibly frustrating because I can barely get an even coat of color because it starts separating and almost beading up. I use a meringue powder-based royal icing,...Read More...
