O.K. 2 questions in a row because I am busy at work trying to juggle Valentine's day-14th and paczki day ( special doughnuts for mardi gras) on the 12th--we do thousands of dozen for that day.
So tried to use stencil on heart cookies and it just wasn't working well. Was applying to a baked red dough cookie with no flooded or iced background... just bare cookie. I wasn't pleased with it at all.
Do most of you always ice a cookie and then use stencil? Maybe my royal icing ( just made) wasn't good or too stiff to use.
Would appreciate any info from what you have done. After decorating over a thousand cookies for christmas I'd much rather use stencils to whip up Valentine cookies.
