- If you want to put your cookies on a stick, roll them out nice and thick, cut them out, then put them on your pan. Chill them on the pan for about 20 min or so. Take them out and insert the stick, centered in the thickness of the cookie. Chilling them will keep them from distorting when you put the stick in.
- Put a toothpick in the top of the frosting squeeze bottles to keep them from getting .clogged and dried out. Remember how fast royal icing dries.
- Bubbles in your frosting are the enemy to smooth cookies. After you fill a cookie with royal icing, you will notice slight bumps. Take a toothpick and pop em! But do this right away! As it starts to dry, it will leave a mark that won’t smooth over.
