I agree with the others, apply one color, let dry completely and then do the next color. Keep a small brush handy to brush off the new color off the old color (it won't stick if the old color is dry.) On my www I have a cookie that was designed to look like Gilda Radner and that bad boy takes three days to make just in drying time! icon_eek.gificon_biggrin.gif

All I can say is WOW! That is truly an amazing cookie...as in Jospeh's amazing technicolor coat!

And Dawn...looking forward to seeing anything new from you! Hide the camera from your kids if you have to.

Fabulous cookies, bakinccc! I'm so impressed. They are beautiful, unique, and fun.

Thanks to all for the tips on sanding sugars. With spring cookies coming up....what a great opportunity to add a little sparkle to all those wonderful spring colors. icon_smile.gif

Those cookies were amazing! Thanks for posting your tips and for everyone else posting tips. I hadn't ever though of using a makeup brush to brush away spare sugar. Great idea!

Is there a trick to putting sugar on the cookie. When I put the RI on and then put the sugar on it ran all down the sides of the cookie icon_cry.gif So after a couple of cookies did this I flooded the cookie and let it sit for a minute before adding the sugar. Is that the right way to do it? I didn't use and outline on the cookie so I was thinking that might have been why they ran icon_mad.gif

nickshalfpint - there are tricks to applying the sugars but you're definitely on the right track. When you apply the sugars it makes the icing heavier which makes it want to run more. So an outline helps a lot...sort of creates that edge needed to keep the fill icing in place. If you don't do an outline then letting your icing dry for a few minutes should help hold it in place...and your sugars will sparkle more because the sugars sit more on top of the icing rather than sinking in so much.

thanks to everyone else for the nice comments!!!!!!
