My piping with glace is poor, so I did something different. I usually squeeze the bag with my writing hand and guide with my other. I decided to do it the opposite & Guide and write with my good hand.

 

Still have a long way to go, but this turned out better for me. Thanks for your beautiful cookie photos and tips.  Your cookies are the bomb!!!!!

Thank you for the wonderful compliment on my cookies! I spend about as much time outlining as I do the actual flooding, so I've had lots of practice outlining! The hard part for me is trying to put into words what I've learned about working with glace. Did you post photos of your cookies??????

Just a quick question. I love this glaze recipe. I use it all the time.

My question is......I am making an order for someone, the cookies are all baked and ready to decorate. She just emailed and asked me to wait until next week! Can I go ahead and decorate them before freezing them? Will the colors run into each other when they thaw?

I appreciate your help. I had planned my schedule to do them this weekend. Sigh........

I would like to know tthis well. Royal icing gets all blotchy when you freeze it so I always just freeze the naked cookies but would love to be able to decorate and freeze.

Glaze does not like to get cold! I would not freeze decorated cookies iced in glaze, as the finish has a high probability of getting splotchy.
