Hi all! I've had this problem for over a year and can't find a solution. It seems like every time I flood cookies with royal, they get what looks like teeny tiny bubbles that show up as it dries. I use Sugarbelle's 20 sec icing recipe and it goes on great, any bubbles I see I pop with a toothpick and smooth over. I've also used other recipes and thinner flood coats with the same "bubbles." I use a squeeze bottle (sometimes a bag) mostly to apply the flood coat. I let the icing sit, covered, for about an hour before applying it to get all the bubbles to the top and pop them. Could it be the way I'm applying it? I squeeze it on, leaving a bit of the tip in the icing so it coats more evenly and go over the whole cookie in even strokes and then shake it a bit when I'm done to settle it.
This is really driving me nuts... help, please! Pics are attached!
