MichelleH,
I would recommend reading through Antonia74's tutorial under the Articles tab (it's called How To Bake & Decorate Cookies). She gives great details for how she puts the icing on the cookies for the best results.

I don't like to have an outline that shows, so I use her "advanced" technique where you do the outline and then fill in right away, so the outline blends in with the flood icing to make a smooth surface.

It will take some time to do that many cookies, you might be surprised.

Depending on the shape of my cookie, I usually use a #3, 4, or 5 tip to do the flooding. If there are lots of little areas on the outline (like when I do feet or seashells), I use a smaller tip. Squares, circles, and other simpler shapes, I use a tip 5.

Good luck, and be sure to post a picture when you're finished!

Laura.

I did these for the first time this weekend. Antonia's tutorial was a wonderful guide to use. I used her icing and I did the cookies without the outline using the #4 tip. I added vanilla to the icing though, I'm not crazy about the strong meringue taste--it seems to taste lemony to me, so I just toned it down a bit. It's funny because when making the icing I wasn't sure if I liked the taste, but once I put it on the cookies, it was awesome!!

Edited out chocolate royal icing question--saw post below.

HELP-I tried to do a search for this receipe and can't locate it. I need to make some wedding bell cookies for this Friday for my daughters rehersal dinner. I was going to use color flow but saw some posts saying not to use that. I will be putting the cookies in little plastic bags so need the icing to dry but not rock hard.Thank you for your time

anoldhippy,

Antonia's icing recipe and method for decorating cookies can be found in her tutorial. Click on the Articles tab, then scroll down near the bottom to find it. It's called "How to bake & decorate cookies".

hth!

I just wanted to thank you all for your help. I made the cookies for the show and my "ghost" cookies were gone in an hour and a half...I ran home to make more, took them to the show and iced them right there...people were surrounding our table waiting for the cookies to dry. I couldn't believe it! It really was very easy to use and I did like the way it tasted. I have already gotten a cookie order that is due today (cats and fish) and they turned out great! Thanks again!
