Duh!!! I just Made No Fail Sugar Cookies - Page 2

cindy6250 - I think coloring the glace icing is easier, it didn't take near the coloring to get blacks and reds like it did when I used the royal icing. I like it a lot. Someone mentioned on another cookie-decorating thread to use the bottles when using this icing since it's easier. (instead of decorator-bags)

Cindy 6250 - I guess I'm just not getting it. Can you explain the dowel trick one more time? I even got out my rolling pin and dowel rods and still couldn't figure it out icon_redface.gif . Thanks!

You can also buy rubber rings to fit on each end of your rolling pin. They come in different sizes and there are 4 sizes(I think) in a package.
I know that they have 1/4 inch and 3/8 inch b/c that is the ones I use the most. You can buy them at a cake supply store. I haven't seen them at Hobby Lobby. I paid about $8 for mine and they have been worth every penney.

Pardon me for butting in, but I will try to help...

Have you ever seen a rolling pin used for fondant or things that need to be level? It looks like a regular rolling pin but on each end it has these rings so you can not go down further into the fondant/dough... this way it ensures that the fondant/dough is equal heights once it's rolled out...

Picture like when you use a sharp knife to cut cheese that has a handle on the on the end..as your cutting the cheese it won't cut all the way through because the handle part touches the counter before the blade would... (am I making sense)

instead of buying this rolling pin with rings lay down dowel rods along the dough as your rolling to prevent the rolling pin from going any further than the thickness of the dowels...

hope this helps...

I'm not Cindy, but I'll try to explain the dowel set-up.

Put two dowel rods (same thickness) on your work surface, as if you were making the uprights for a big letter "H" in front of you. Place them so the distance between them is less than the width of your rolling pin.

Put the cookie dough between the dowel rods, and as you roll the dough, eventually the rolling pin will hit the dowels and your dough will be an even thickness, the same as the size of the dowel rods.

hth!
Laura.

I just bought the rings for rolling pins at Bed BAth and Beyond and I really like them. I could have gotten off cheaper if I read about the dowels first though! I like my cookies 1/4 inch thick.
