Valentine's Day Cookies - Page 2

post #16 of 23
I recently saw cookies that looked like they were iced with royal icing that had luster dust mixed into the icing. They were beautiful, but I'm scared to try it without knowing how it was really done. Anyone got any ideas?

Alice cookie icing is not like the usual royal icing type cookie icing. Don't try to flood it to fill the surface of the cookies. It will take forever to dry. But it taste great. All my clients love the taste and they prefer it over the usual royal icing.


If you didn't flood the roses, how did you ice them?

Cake Princess - Sorry it has taken me so long. No I can't post a link, I saw them on someone's table at Christmas. A friend of mine told me she buys glitter at cake show and Days of Sharing. I'm going to the Day of Sharing at Lake Jackson, TX this weekend. If I find it, I'll ice some cookies with it and post a pic. And I'll let you know where you can get it.

Alice's Icing is a great recipe..and tastes like cream cheese..it's the only icing I generally use on my cookies, and they are a huge seller in the store I am a supplier for. They do take about 20mts or so to set if you flood the cookie, depending on how thin you make the icing. I usually flood the cookies the night before or early morning then come back later and finish the design, it is wonderful, happy icing, C.

If you are flooding and waiting all night for the cookies to dry then finishing the design in the morning. How long is the total drying time for them to be completely stackable?

This is one of the reasons I mentioned that it's not recommended to flood this icing. It takes way longer to be completely dry and stackable when it's flooded.

I use my icing without flooding and I can do my designs right away and leave them overnight so I am 100% they are fully dry and stackable. Then all I have to do in the morning is package them. I will time time it the next time so I know exactly how long it takes to dry.
