post #1 of 77
Thread Starter 
I have been getting some great questions about how I do my decorated cookies and I'd really love to write an article for this site to answer everything I can...SO, what can I include in an "Everything You've Always Wanted to Know About Decorating Cookies"-type write-up?

I'm willling to give away any info I can, just let me know what you'd all like me to include??

This is a great topic! I have a 5 year old going into Kindergarten and cookies are always a good choice.

I would like to know:

1. Your favorite cookie recipes. Are there some recipes that are better for adults or kids or all they all basically the same? Do you use the same recipe if the cookies are going to be on sticks?

2. What size decorating tips you use for various decorations.

3. Is there a way to know when you have the right consistency of icing?

I am sure I will think of more things but these are the first things that come to mind.

Thanks for your willingness to share with everyone here.

Hi Antonia74, That would be sooo great if you did this!! I was just talking to my husband about the art of cookie decorating and how to make the cookie boquets. I would ike to learn more about when to ad your sticks to the cookies. like how much after they come out of the oven??Is thier a good baking pan to use, maybe the wilton ones??or how to ad diifferent colors to one cookie so they dont mix.Or can you freeze the the cookis dough and whats the best way to do that ? Can you freeze the baked cookies and whats the best way to do that?? are thier any tricks on making the royal icing ? Thanks I cant wait to see how it turns out.

Hi and thanks for being so willing to share your knowledge. icon_smile.gif I have a couple of good cookie recipes that I use for holiday baking. I always have skipped using a base frosting. I skip the background (?) frosting because the recipes are so sicky-sweet. Is there a way to make the frosting without using 100% powdered sugar? I don't know any adults who eat completely frosted cookies due to the taste of the frosting. Thanks!

I would love to know the recipe for the type of icing that is hard to touch but soft to eat. I have been looking for this recipe for ages.

I think that this is going to be an awesome article. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and expertise.

I think what I'd like to see most is good recipe for cut cookies, good icing recipe and what you charge for cookies with pictures of the type of detail.
