Question by philasophos01: Can you buy the kind of cookie frosting that hardens at grocery stores?
I want to make holiday cookies & decorate them but don’t know how to get the designs not to be all goopy, and make them so I can actually transfer them without them becoming indiscriminate blobs. Any suggestions please?

Not sure what you have in mind, but the simplest cookie icing is powdered sugar moistened and colored. This gets hard quickly, so you have to be rapid at making your design.

smear the base color on the cookie, pipe with smallest tip, the designs you want on the cookie. Don’t get any of this too thick on the cookie. Don’t get the icing too thin or too thick. It will take a bit of practice to get it the way you can work with.

At which retails stores can I find a Kuhn Rikon cookie press or any other good cookie press?

Question by klokd: At which retails stores can I find a Kuhn Rikon cookie press or any other good cookie press?
I heard a lot of good things about the Kuhn Rikon cookie press and I was wondering where I could find it at a good price? Don’t want to get it online or at any specialty stores like Sur La Table though.

If you have a cookie press recommendation, please name them.

I have an old metal one, that was my mother’s, and it’s still perfect after over 40 years! … I do know you can get those on eBay, but most of the ones sold at stores now are plastic:) …. Try Williams-Sonoma; Bed,Bath &Beyond; Linen & Things; or Crate & Barrel

whats wrong with the normal [normal fat amounts] cookies?? fat’s not going to kill you, if you didnt know. your body was made to process it. im sorry, but i dont understand why so many girls are so obsessed about what they eat and their body size.

Answer by dragonfire
look up the story of bear naked products
they started from an at home business
and they slowly but surely got their products accepted into stores
the way they did it was to do face to face meeting with GMs of the stores in question
but you have to be professional and prepared
later once the company grew did they establish a small sales force and up scaled their manufacturing process to keep up with the orders
