Cookie Flooding question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I decided to try this because I want to practice the embroidery technique. I got the royal icing to the perfect consistancy, but soon after I started outlining the dam, the tip got clogged...and kept getting clogged! I ended up throwing the bag aside and just used a spoon! I was using tip # 3. The recipe I found for royal icing did not say to sift the powdered sugar...I'm wondering if little bits of sugar is what was clogging my tip...Thoughts?

Absolutely!

Firstly you should be using pure icing sugar - no cornstarch in it. Secondly you need to sift with a very fine sifter/sieve. I use a superfine drum sieve.

You sometimes even have to then strain the icing through a nylon stocking to remove even more particulate matter, if you're using a 00, 000 or a 0000 tip!

I can move your thread, so you do not have to repost it there.
