I've been experimenting with adorable Sugar Stamps. Those experiments worked beautifully!
My experiments with royal icing did not go well.
The first thing I tried was to pipe royal icing onto the cookies. Then flip the cookies over onto the sheets. Sugar Stamp sheets need heat to transfer the design. I thought I'd try using a dehydrator set at 155 degrees. I left the cookies in the dehydrator for about an hour then left them to dry at room temperature over night.
The next day......
Fail. The royal icing couldn't completely dry because of the plastic sheet over it. The design didn't transfer well at all. Perhaps from the lack of heat.
Next experiment....Try to transfer the design onto cookies covered in royal icing that has already dried completely.
I placed the Sugar Stamp, design side down, over the iced/dried cookie. Then I applied heat with a hot air gun.
The result? Nothing. The design did not transfer AT ALL. Bummer.
I'd love to figure out a way to marry Sugar Stamps and royal icing! Any ideas?
