Maybe the symbol has an alternate meaning when printed backwards? Some great fortune perhaps? Like, "The rising moon will grant happiness to your family". icon_wink.gif

is there any way to maybe air brush in white some of the mistaken part after you wiped it before redoing the others? kind of crazy . . . or just pour another layer of royal icing so that you don't have to redo the last 20 cookies completely? that is horrible . . .

it is something i would do - only it would be at 4:00 in the morning, and i'd have another deadline to meet, and i'd be out of ingredients, and i wouldn't have slept for 3 days . . . . and i'd be crying hysterically.

you are handling this amazingly well!

I guess we know what's for dinner tonight!


I'm sorry this happened to you - these things happen every so often. Just think of how bad 200 cookies would have been! icon_smile.gif

How many passed the cookie inspection? Do we get to see a before & after pic.?

Side note: Helen, my kiddos fell in love with your recipe, they like the fact that there is no waiting. Even though they did not use the RI they had a blast decorating with anything and everything I have in the baking pantry. I love the fact that we enjoy it together. Thanks for sharing the Good, and the Bad with us. thumbs_up.gif

Ooh what recipe is that? Will we see pics of the cookies? I wonder if it did have a different meaning backwards.... LOL! This is SOOOO something I would do!

Good luck! Hope they turn out better than you think!

okay, 9:30pm update....

20 cookies didn't pass the inspection of Eagle Eyes....but 80 did!! Woo hoo!

So, I re-baked 25 and am about to ice them now.

Oh, don't you worry...there WILL be pictures!

I thought of everything like cutting out fondant circles and applying them overtop, colouring the entire cookie then doing the Chinese symbol in white, going out to buy and airbrush....

glad I wasn't too hasty, they seem to be okay now. thumbs_up.gif

------------------------------------------------------


P.S. If I didn't have 3 other wedding cakes this weekend, I would have re-done them entirely....but I have a 7 tier monster of a fake cake (52" tall with flowers between each tier!!!), a 4 tier fake cake covered in gold dust and crystals AND a real 3-tier for Sunday. icon_cry.gif

Oh I feel so bad for you.. I am glad that most of them passed the test though and you didn't have to redo them all. Once you are all done you can sit and have a nice hot cup of tea and 20 or so cookies to go with it..

Ah, they're lovely! At my brother's wedding there was the double happiness symbol everywhere and most of us wouldn't have known if it were forward or backward! You could've gotten away with it!
