Alice's icing question

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I decided to try the Alice's icing today and it is quite creamy, the texture is like a soft buttercream. icon_confused.gif

Can I thin this down to "flood"?

I've got cookies in waiting.... icon_lol.gif

Do you mean Alice's Cookie Icing from the recipe section? I haven't used it yet, will be tonight, but it says in the recipe that you can thin it down to use like colorflow for flooding.
HTH,

Cake Princess...you on??

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. icon_cry.gif
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 thinned to to a color-flow consistency. Looks like half a batch will be hitting the garbage. I'll try scraping them off and see what happens.

Thanks Cake Princess. I knew I could count on ya!

Yea royal icing-run in/ color flow consistancy is no good for this type of icing. Private message me if you need any more answers. This way I will see the flashing mail thingie.

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

Do you live in an area where the climate is a dry heat? I use my Alice cookie icing without thinning it and it pretty much takes sitting over night to be totally dry and stackable.

How much water are you adding to you recipe?

A lot of people have been thinning their recipe to the point where the cookies are ruined.
