Thanks for the tutorial! Have you ever had a Problem where, in this example, the pink flood icing 'bleeds through the silhouette icing transfer?
wonderful. Thanks for sharing your step-by-step.
You are an amazing inspiration! I've just started cookie decorating for friends and family (and sugar high co-workers who get my experiments) and I really appreciate your tutorials! Each time it helps me organize myself better so I give myself less headaches decorating :)
I love those!! Great job..as usual. And you didn't mention the eyelashes, but I assume they were done with an edible marker..right??? I'm going to have to try more of the transfers...I love the clean lines.
Beautiful! Love your work! What brand of edible marker to you like to use. The ones I have used I am not loving... Time to try a new one.
Beuatiful work. What brand of edible markers do you like to use?
Thank you Jacqueline! Yes, that does happen! I can't say that there is a great solution to that problem. The only thing I would say is that the faster your icing dries, the less time is has to bleed so I'd suggest using a fan or a heat gun.
The eyelashes were actually done by dipping a scribe into the icing and drawing them on! My tip 1 was too big to get such tiny lines.
Thank you Tasha! I use Foodoodler fine tip markers. You can purchase them here: http://www.foodoodler.com/10packfineline.aspx
Thank you so much for the tutorial!Your work with the cookie decorating is so amazing :)I wish some day I can use icing as well as you. (excuse-me for my english)
Perfect cookies, I don't have words, the colours, the style, everything is perfect! Thank you for showing us how you did it.Miri
Your cookies never cease to amazed me! Simply stunning! A question though ( a silly one but I'm truly an amateur *blush* )...How did you get your royal icing looking shiny & smooth? Mine ALWAYS ends up looking dull & no shine :-(
So lovely!And what a helpful tutorial. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you Ritz! I've noticed that the faster my icing dries, the shinier it is. A fan or a heat gun will help to speed up the drying process.
Thanks for the tip Amber dear. You're such an angel for willing to share your knowledge. Thanks so much! Another silly question ( sorry! *blush* ) - By using fan, wouldn't it affect the texture of the cookies ( making it stale )? I'm really sorry for such novice questions but I wish to learn from the best, YOU! :-) *Gosh! I'm so covering my face out of embarrassment with all these 'duhhhh' questions*
No problem Ritz! Drying the icing with a fan for just a few hours won't make the cookies stale. Don't worry!
These are exquisite (as always). Thanks so much for sharing the tutorial...I'm a long way off being able to decorate with your skill, but you are so generous to share your knowledge to help us learn!
Thanks so much Amber for taking the time to answer all my 'duhhhhh' questions :-) You are indeed heaven sent! Hugs!
Thanks for the tut! Great instructions and photos. I'm using the same technique to make Oscar Night cookies. You inspired me.:)
thanks so much for share with us your beautifull work
What type of heat gun are you using? I've tried an embossing gun, but it didn't seem to do much.
wonderful. Thanks for sharing your step-by-step
I'm a confused beginner too, and you say you did the silhouettes and the circles with thin royal icing? Is it just a little bit thinned, like to piping consistency? When I think the R.I. it goes everywhere. It looks like you have total control over the icing, I find when it's thick, I get too many bumps and not a smooth finish that you have. When it's thin, it just runs everywhere. Do you have any more details as to how thin this is? Is it a 15/20 sec. R.I? Do you ever outline/flood? ThanksSuzannewww.sweetsbysuz.blogspot.com
Hi Suzanne! The icing that I used here was a 10-15 second RI. I use the same consistency for my outline as I do for my flooding. That way the outline is undetectable. If you experiment with the consistency of your icing, you'll find what's right for you. Thanks for your comment!
I'll have to try this. I tried one of your designs just for fun and I'm even more amazed at your cookies. It was kind of like when Walmart tries to copy clothes from a high-end designer from Nieman Marcus. Totally off!! I have even more respect for your cookies!!
Thank you so much for this tutorial!! I cant tell you how excited I am to try these for my daughter's birthday!! Thanks you!!
