Here are the simple tools I used to create the textures I used in my flood consistency royal icing.
The  tip on greasing the molds helped - I used a spray and wiped the mold until a small amount remained. I also used the mold directly on the cookie surface with the bells , the dress and the gems of the ring.  However  with the cake and the inside of the ring I cut a circle out with parchment paper the size I needed and used that as my guide, filled the mold approximately the size of the circle , placed the parchment disc on it, tapped lightly, cleaned the sides and waited for it to dry. It easily peeled away from the mold.

What a wonderful and elegant application! Though I didn't grease my SugarVeil mats at all, and I found the icing came out easily as long as it was fully dry (overnight for me). I've never greased a silicone mold, I don't think, for any application.

But you suggested to lightly grease the mold but cautioned on fat breaking down RI so I very lightly greased the plastic and silicone and it peeled back effortlessly!   So thank you. The wax paper was easy in its own.

I’ve been MIA so it was nice participating in this!

They are all different patterns and yet you can see that it is a set that belongs together! Very festive Tina !! I like the beautiful bells the most !!!! Absolutely great!! ❤️😘  @Tina at Sugar Wishes

I wanted to try every possibility I could think of. It was a nice learning experience.
Thanks so much.

So great to see you here too! I think @Sweet Prodigy said that, especially the part about fat breaking down royal icing. I've never greased a silicone mold. I have lightly greased acetate sheets, and it helps a little, but I don't do it regularly either because it's an added step and I don't find it adds that much. (I also don't think greasing is going to break down very thick icing like what I used, perhaps only delay drying time - though I am not sure, and would want to test this before saying so definitively.) But I am glad greasing worked for you. I just wanted to make clear it's not a work habit of mine.

My bad , I didn’t see the end of your quote and thought the suggestion came from you. I will correct that.

Yes, it was I who had mentioned this. I have lightly greased acetate sheets as well, and have found that it does help with more heavily flooded transfers. I have also accidentally applied a little too much grease to my acetate. It was a few years back, and I remember it ruined my transfer, which is why I cautioned that a small amount should be used and tested first.

Thanks for the tip @Sweet Prodigy! And thank you for all you do keep us on our toes!

What a beautiful and elegant set of cookies Tina @Tina at Sugar Wishes. I love the textures and colors. Thank you for the explanation on how you did it. Never knew I could place the mold directly on the cookies. Great job.

It was a bit clumsy but effective because they were large. Smaller ones would work easily.
I’m so happy you like them!
