More royal icing transfer-mania! In a recent video (in the “Also See” section, below), I showed you how to make basic round and oval transfers for placing, piecework-style, on cookies. In this video, I show how to make more complex traced shapes of two types – one where the outline is indistinguishable from the rest of the transfer, and another where the outline is purposely distinct from the flooding icing inside. Along the way, I share tips for getting the icing into very tight spaces, accelerating drying, and lifting dry transfers to minimize breakage.
