Icing on cookies - Page 3

post #31 of 41
Just thought I would throw my two cents in here: I tried just about everything there is to try to ice my cookies and here is what I discovered. The NFSC recipe is very tried and true. I tried using almond extract but in the end found that good old vanilla tastes better. At first I was flooding my cookies and doing the details in Antionia 74's RI, until I was told that they tasted horrible and that some children I made them for wouldn't eat them. I think that some people do not like the taste of the meringue powder in the RI. So next I tried MMF and RBC- the overwhelming response I got was that they looked great, and even tasted okay, but not a single person who tried them could get over the weird texture. So finally I tried Toba glace icing and...TADA! I have gotten only great responses using this to flood. I still use Antionia's RI to do the detail because it has such great consistency and hold up under pressure.

Anyways, I hope that helps.

I also use Toba glace icing and it turns out great and tastes good too. I thicken a small bowl of icing with extra powdered sugar for outlining so it won't run off the cookie. I let that dry then fill in with the thinned icing.

I made Antonia74's RI and added 2 Tablespoons of Vanilla extract to it. I had my friends 8 year old try it and he said it tasted great!

What did you use to ice them? RBC or RI?

Thanks.

I would bet my life on Antonio74's icing...it is the best! I have had so much fun making the NFSC w/ this icing...check out my pictures!

It does take practice and getting the icing consistency right, but the end results are worth it!

I strongly recommend the squeeze bottles that you can put your icing tips on...makes life so much easier when working with this icing. I prefer the smaller bottles for better control. Now when I am doing the detailing on the cookies, I use icing bags w/ tips and a stiffer icing.

Thumbs up to Antonio74...she's the greatest, and a great helper when you have questions...especially with cookies!

brea1026, did you add some vanilla extract to Antonia74's RI? Antonia74 is in Canada and the meringue powder there is vanilla flavored. Might explain why your RI didn't taste good. Just thought you should know in case you wanted to try it again. HTH

Hi, thanks so much!! icon_biggrin.gif
I used a little bit of everything to tell you the truth. Some are RI, some are MMF and some are chocolate. Let me know if there is one in specific you would like to know about.
Thanks again!!

Honestly, I think it is a personal preference. One of my co-workers does not like my cookies with icing on them, but I have way more that do!

I just don't bring any in for her when I make them.
Course she's one that if Grandma didn't make them, they aren't any good, so oh well! To each their own!

It never bothers me if someone don't like what I make. Because, for the one that don't like it I have 99 that love it.
