They do look great! Beautiful!
I made the RBC for the first time a few weeks ago. Don't think it worked quite right. I got it made and on cookies, but it was not easy.
First, it never got to a mixture like the picture m_mckinney1 posted after your challenge.
-It stayed completely crumbly. I poured it out on my vinyl like that and then had to dig the stuck on portion out too. I guess I should have added the water. ??
-I kneaded it from that part, but it was very hard to do. Especially since i have bad hands and wrists, it just about killed me.
-The color did not get mixed in the mixer either so as I kneaded it mixed in well.
-It would crack everytime I would turn it over to knead it the other way.
-Then it became very greasy. Made it good to not stick to the vinyl while I was rolling it out, but it was greasy everywhere.
-I got it all rolled out and cut into bunny shapes for my cookies. Layered them between wax paper sheets to wait for the cookies. (I knew it needed to be ready for when the cookies came out and I had not even made them yet, so thought this was the right way to do that.)
-I made the cookies and put the RBC cut-outs on the cookies as soon as they came out of the oven, but they were still extremely greasy. (And stuck to the wax paper because of the grease.) And as I went trhough my two batches of cookies the edges of the RBC cut-outs started to get hard.
-They all adhered to the cookies beautifully, but they stayed greasy the whole time. I kinda rubbed the grease in before I decorated them (a couple of hourse later).
I have attached pictures of as many steps as I remembered to take pictures of. It is hard to see grease in photos, but maybe you can.
It is beautiful on the cookies and it tastes great, but it was way too hard to knead and the grease concerned me. I was hoping to be able to use it on a cake, but with those results, I don't want to try it. :(
What did I do wrong? Please help!
I'm sorry this is long. I get long-winded. I just wanted to cover everything so you would know how to help.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you all.
