Reply to "Edible Image Icing Sheets - Why Do They Tear??"

Hi, I imagine there is some issue with the paper drying faster than the underlying icing, or vice versa, and thus some tension is created that causes the sheets to tear. In the past when I covered cookies completely with icing images (which was not often, hence my experience is not too deep), I iced the cookies, let them dry completely, and then attached the sheets with a thin shmear of corn syrup, though misting with water (ever so little) also works. I never got any tears this way, and there was no risk of messing up the underlying icing because it was fully set at the time of paper application.

Hope this helps!
