Rose- Sorry to hijack, I can't remember if I've read somewhere on here that you shouldn't use royal on BC? I was going to use a crusting BC and then let the royal dry on wax paper and attach to BC (using Antonia74's recipe) will this be ok? Post pictures of your cookies! :]

I think _ but I am not positive - that it's OK to pipe royal on top of butter cream. The issue, I think, is that when making the RI, any fat/grease will effect it's ability to properly come together.

But, again, I'm not sure - hopefully someone else can chime in that has more experience and knowledge than me!

Cupcakes are not my realm, but I can pass on that my friend, Jen Whitlock, told me that when she makes RI transfers to go atop cupcakes, that she makes certain to apply them at the last minute as otherwise the RI transfers can 'melt' into the buttercream. I am not sure what type of bc (crusting, non-crusting) as that is not my forté. It is just something I tucked in the back of my mind for when I plan to try RI on cupcakes in the future. Hope that helps a bit.

Here are some pics as promised!

I'm just gonna post links because I'm too tired to go through and resize each of them.

I'm not entirely pleased with their outcome, but I did have a lot of fun doing them. I realized after I got about half done that I forgot to thin down the frosting to flood the cookies, so that's why the frosting seems a little thick and goopey. But I'll know next time! I still have some cookies left so maybe I'll try again tomorrow. And I was attempting a paisley design on those round cookies if anyone was wondering! icon_biggrin.gificon_redface.gif

And this last one is a fail. It's explained in the note. poo. icon_sad.gif

I think I'm gonna have lots of fun with this cookie thing! icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

Rose - Oh, you should be SO very proud! Those are monumentally better than my first attempts! Love your designs and wow, you are off to a great start!

I wrote notes on them, but again, so sorry about your broken cookie. icon_sad.gif Lovely design though! All of them are just really great!

Well, I think that you are now officially hooked on cookie-ing! party.gif Welcome to our little wonderful world! icon_biggrin.gif
