I just read on a Wilton's forum that if you thin this down, it never dries. Is this correct? I just thinned it down and did half my cookies.
It's been about an hour and they are still very runny.
I'm here now... I never thin it.. I used 5 TBSP of water as called for and I use it like that. I imagine if you thin it too much it will take about a week before it dries.. LOL... plus you will need to add more meringue powder to it. So basically use it as is.
Edit... Can u scrape the mess off and salvage the cookies? It's gonna take forever to dry. How much water did you add?

I just read this post so I realize it is extremely late, but I have been using Alice's icing, and have thinned it to a consistency to pour on a cookie, and after about 30mts or so, it is strong enough to decorate lightly on..if I need it to be completely dry, I flood it the night before..definitely dry by morning..it is the only icing I use, gives a nice sheen and tastes fantastic..happy icing, Chocolate
