Saturday Spotlight on Sunday!

· in Important Admin Notices · 1 reply Tina at Sugar Wishes
Hi, everyone. My apologies again, but this weekend's Spotlight will likely come on Sunday instead.

HELP! My Icing Sheets/Transfers Are a Tad Bit Too Big for My Cookie!

· in Other Technique/Design Help Needed - STAT! · 12 replies Julia M. UsherEAC MG IcingsugarkeksJulia M. Usher
I made 4 dozen square cookies (3") and I ordered icing transfers/sheets from Etsy. I've used them before for hearts and circles and they were always a little smaller than my cookie so I never had this issue. I did the outline and the flooding, then I placed the icing sheets, now one each cookie there is a little excess hanging over the edge (maybe not even 1/16"?), but it's not attached to anything.
