I am really late on watching this video, which by the way…..VERY APPRECIATED! How does this stenciling icing work with silk screen stencils?
The Cookie Countess replied:
Hi Dawn! This icing is just like your normal royal icing—just faster! 😊 Silkscreen stencils typically require a different consistency of icing than regular stencils do, so just adjust the amount of water you add til you get to that right consistency. Have fun!

Liba - July 17, 2023

Thank you for the video. I enjoyed and learned a lot!
Can I use very thick royal icing that I make myself instead of using the special stenciling icing?
The Cookie Countess replied:
Absolutely, you can! Have fun! 😊
