How is done? Edible images on cookies - Page 2

post #16 of 33
I brush the RI or fondant on the cookie and the lay the EI on the cookie to to bottom and then smooth it out to get any airbubbles out. If they persist I use a pin and pop them

Thanks everyone for your responses! This place is great!
My sister in law asked me to make cookie favors (heart shaped) for her wedding (150 of them) and she wants their names and dates written on the cookies...definitely too much for my piping bag! I thought getting an edible image printer would be the solution but looks probably not since I don't want to have to cut 150 heart shapes out of the EI sheets.

Which leads me to more questions.... A cricut machine (which I had never heard of before) is too much of an investment for me for this project). Is there somewhere I can have a stencil made for me?

Or if I was to go with the stamp route are edible ink pads available? I've never seen them anywhere, or do you use coloring paste or refill ink for a printer?

You can pretty much get any empty ink pad and fill it with food coloring.
If you want a custom stencil made, you can go to culinarystencils and order it there.
Good luck to you.

thanks luvs, did not know about them for stencils. Some day, I will get a fancy toy to make them. I have seen another type at Michael's that makes them but..., If money were no object we all would have to get a storage unit to hold all our toys in. icon_lol.gif

Question - I am making 4 dozen edible image cookies tomorrow. What is the benefit of using vodka over just plain water? Thanks!
post #22 of 33
The vodka has a high alcohol content and therefore evaporates faster. The water will sit on the surface and cause it to become sticky and takes forever to dry enough to package. I think it gets a slimey texture as well. IMHO

I made these edible image cookies for a lady at work who was celebrating her dog's 2nd birthday. icon_smile.gif
I did these for the first time using my new printer and kopykake order. I used the Vodka for applying the pictures. I made 4 dozen. They were a hit! Now I have more orders from others for photo cookies. icon_smile.gif

LGC, very cute!
After the RI was completely dry & you applied the EI w/ vodka, how long before you can stack & package the cookies?

splymale - Well, I was in a hurry with these ones. They only had about 4 hours to dry before I had to box them up. I didn't have to individually wrap them. I didn't stack them directly on top of each other - I stacked the edges on the edges - make sense? They were still a little tacky, so they would have been ruined if I stacked them directly on top of each other. But I was just very careful and it worked out! icon_smile.gif I think they really should have 24 hours to dry before you can feel comfortable bagging and stacking them.

at the bakery I work at (I dont usually do the cookies but i watch icon_smile.gif) we let the RI completely dry, the wet the image with clear vanilla extract. the ei is trimmed down as small as it can be....not the size of the cookie. I wish I had a pic of how they turn out but I dont....I can tell you they always look cute.

Thanks for the replies!
So they can be bagged 24 hours after RI dries or after EI is applied?

Question regarding the dog cookies- what type of icing did you use around the edges of the edible images? You did a great job on the cookies!
post #30 of 33
Thanks! I just used Royal Icing. I'm going to use a different tip next time for the border so it covers more of the edge - maybe a star tip.
