Okay, okay, y'all have drug me over to the dark side...whatever that means, I'll crank up the KA on my next batch. Okay, I've done so many cookies this week (with many more to go) that I'm kinda goofy (my mother would say I'm getting simple) I did both RI and TG, and I'm the idiot who didn't mark them. afraid I might mix some TG into RI when refilling a squeeze bottle or mixing a new color......will the place blow up? And, to top that all off, I have a squeeze bottle of sugarveil...hope I don't throw that into the mix.
Kim, yes, I was blessed enough to get a KA for my birthday this year, my SIL is Sooooo jealous, so I have to throw cookies her way every now and again, which is only fitting, since it's her secret SC recipe that wows all my cookie eaters!

Congrats on the KA! I complained about my mixer so much that my husband told me to "buy one already"...so I bought a KA Pro600!

Okay, I know we all thought we beat this poor ol horse to death, BUT...leave it to me to open it back up. I'm in here while my TG is whipping for 10 minutes. Now, I'm guessing I didn't pay attention in forum class, it's the RI that goes for 10 minutes, not TG, right?

RI should be beat for 8 - 10 minutes. (Antonia's, according to her recipe, should be beat for 10, with the paddle attachment.)

Toba's glace' should be mixed just until the corn syrup is incorporated (for me that's less than 2 minutes usually.) You mix it for too long and you'll have to deal with a lot of air bubbles.

Honey, yeah, live and learn. I'm spending the next few minutes popping bubbles. At least I was smart enough tonight (unlike last night) and marked my TG and RI, so I don't mix. Not sure if that's what happened last night, but I got Super Super black thick sloshy something. icon_smile.gif

Hello Everyone,

I plan to make RI for the first time this weekend. I just finished my first Wilton Class on cake decorating. I have seen so many cookies that I want to try those out even though we have not been formally taught by an instructor how to make it. I am going to just decorate some flowers to get a feel for the RI. I am going to use tip 2 to outline the cookies. I think from reading this forum, I am going to use squeeze bottles to flood the remainer of the cookie. Have any of you ever used pastry bags to flood the cookies? Also, do you guys have any tips for me? Can yall describe the technique to test for the right consistency again? I kind of missed it. Thanks in advance.

I'm probably waaay too late for this party, but just wanted to add, if you're using your KA for RI, be sure to wipe everything down with vinegar before you start. Any trace of grease will wreck the batch.

One cookie disaster too many made this part of my set-up routine.

I keep a bottle of watered down vinegar and wipe, with paper towels, anything that will touch the icing: KA bowl, paddles, spatula, colour mixing bowls, spoons, EVERYTHING!

Also, I use the same consistency icing to outline and flood - I think it's just a matter of personal preference. I prefer the seamless look.
