Drying Decorated Cookies

Drying Decorated Cookies



If you can't see the video click HERE. 

Bonjour mes amies! Today's video is about how to dry cookies decorated with royal icing.

It may seem like such a simple thing, but knowing how to let them dry, makes a difference in how your cookies turn out. Something I didn't mention in the video, is that the cookie shapes were made using templates I created, not cookie cutters. Either way, if you're not making too many of these, cutting the cookies out with a template and paring knife isn't difficult, it just takes a bit longer. You can find an Eiffel Tower cookie cutter here, and for the other shapes you can be creative and use other cutters you already have. Take for example the dachshund, Cindy asked on facebook if it was from a stocking cookie cutter. It actually isn't, but what a fantastic idea - thanks Cindy!

Happy decorating!
xo, 
Marian

Tap, Tap, Tap . . . is this thing still on?

Hellooooo...it's Bridget here!

Miracle of miracles, we have a video today!!!  A missing camcorder charging cord, Flip software that wouldn't work, and well, general busyness have kept me away for awhile.  Sunday, I broke down and bought an iPhone (oh, how I love it)....and Monday, I tested out the video camera.


Short and sweet today:  this tip is one I picked up from Julia Usher's new book, Ultimate Cookies.
Now, Julia uses this technique when she is constructing 3D cookie masterpieces (think gingerbread houses), but I used it this week when I wanted to be sure my cookies were cut to the exact same size as my edible images. 


If anyone is still here, thanks for watching!!!
