I have definitely flat-dipped my cut out cookies before. It is so much faster that way if you are using only one icing color. I've never thought of piping over top of the dried icing, but this looks great! I'm sure it would work...I'll have to give it a try.

No..it's not dipped flat. It is filled with royal icing and left to dry a little. then you go back over it with the outline.

I was wondering about cookies on a stick. Can they be baked with the stick in them and when they are cooled dipped in almond bark (colored) or candy melts? I wanted to do this to reenforce the sticks. Then decorate on top of that after they are dry. I am thinking about tulips, bunnies,etc. for spring bouqets.

The way I do it is to set the top of my cut out cookie (flat) into the icing I prepared, then carefully grab the cookie from the sides, wiggle it back and forth just a bit to make sure the icing contacts everywhere it should and then lift it up and out of the icing. There may be a little excess icing on the cookie, which I take care of by taking a knife or icing blade and smothing off the excess while still holding the cookie upside down. Then, when I flip it over, it's all covered. As it dries, icing will settle out and even out in spots where it may not be perfect. Obviously, this method requires an icing that is a little runnier. I have a different recipe altogether that I use...maybe I should post it.

The way the first cookie is done is called flooding. You use a stiffer royal and let it set up a bit then you use a thinner icing to "flood" in the area. Then let it set up and decorate with royal on top. icon_smile.gif

I dipped flat some cookies this weekend and then did the detail work after that dried. You can look at my photos, the ones of the baby onesie are the ones I did this weekend.

Ok my question is ..Does the icing cover the back of the cookie too. I have baby shower cookies to do and this seems like this would be so much easier. I am still new and have only did cookies twice. Would I just like dunk the cookies in the icing and then what would I pull them out with? TIA~Melissa

No, you don't submerge the entire cookie. You lay the top of the cookie face-down on the icing (it shouldn't really sink, but I kind of hold the cookie by its sides - just w/ my fingers) then give the cookie a gentle back-and-forth along the top of the icing to make sure all the surfaces on the top of the cookie make contact with the icing. Does that make sense? So when you are finished, it would look like the cookie above (yellow background icing), minus all the piping done on top.

I hope this helps!
