Airbrushing Royal Icing Transfers

As you know I have a slight obsession with royal icing transfers. I enjoy making them and using them to make decorating cookies and cupcakes fast, easy and stress free. The only thing that I don’t like about them is sometimes my black transfers look a little dull after they dry. Don’t fret! I have a solution for you. Airbrushing royal icing transfers before you need them will keep them looking shiny.

Can you tell which puppy is feeling a bit under the weather? The nose on the left is airbrushed and the one on the right has not been airbrushed. In person you can really see the difference. I think the photos are ok but you really need to try this for yourself.

Airbrushing Royal Icing Transfers by www.thebearfootbaker.comI think this is reason 1,001 that I love my airbrush gun.  I love making royal icing templates in advance so they are always ready to use and the airbrush gun helps make them look shiny. I don’t airbrush my royal icing eyes because they dry with a shine but for some reason the black always fades and looks dull. A little spray of the airbrush gun while they are still attached to the wax paper makes them perfect so they are ready when I am. Airbrushing royal icing transfers is fun and good practice for using your airbrush gun.

She used these cutters to make the cutest horse cookies and I asked her if she would let me make puppies with her design. She is so sweet she said, “Sure you can!” I love that girl!!
