WANTED: Recipe for Clear Gel or Glaze (ala Wilton Sparkle Gel) Answered
I recently made my first trial batch of Unicorn Poop, but I ran into a problem! I tried using the Wilton Sparkle Gel as suggested, and it *looks* fantastic... but it *tastes* bad. D: I wasn't sure if it was just me, so I tried it out on my beau, and then a couple of co-workers. The verdict: plain cookies tasted better than the Wilton-covered cookies. Oh no!! That means that my Unicorn Poops will look old and crusty, instead of wet and sparkly! (The horror, amirite?)
I'd like to "glaze" them so that they can hold onto all the sparkles and decorations that make them so whimsical (as if rainbow colored poop cookies need the help!!) but I don't want to share cookies that taste sub-par because of the decorations.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I'd like to make my own glaze, and ideally it would "harden", or at least dry "unsticky" (not a word) so that transporting them wouldn't be a hassle. Maybe glycerin? Light corn syrup? I'm open to suggestion!
