Do you have to have a layer of BC frosting for the transfer to stick to or can you transfer directly to a giant cookie? I want to make a pizza-sized cookie and thought a BCT would be fun if it's possible. Anyone tried this?

Oooo...that's a great idea! I'd be afraid using to much BC icing would soften the cookie. Maybe you could put down a layer of cookie icing first to kind of seal it?

I've used BC on a cookie. No reason why you couldn't use a BCT.

I use bc on cookies all the time. It may not look as nice as a glaze but i really love the taste of buttercream on a cookie.

I've done a BCT on a cookie for my karate group and there was no problem with the cookie. I think the only hard part was was that I did regular small cookies and had to do many transfers. It was for a fundraiser though, so it was worth the work.

Aupekkle- what kind of frosting did you use under the BCT for the cookies? Just buttercream or a cookie icing? (They look great, BTW, you should post this in the Cookie Photo gallery if you haven't already!)

Hi momsandraven,

Actually, I did a test batch and in those I used a whipped buttercream underneath the BCT. The one's in the photo have Alice's cookie icing as the background. Both came out pretty good.

BCT on cookie cakes is a fantastic idea. I bet you'll get a lot of customers after you do this. Make sure you post your pictures so we can see them. Good luck!

Oh Wow! Your cookies look great! That is a lot of transfers...so nice when you can do that for such a good cause.

its official... I mentioned this to my neighbor and she said yes...because she has...but usually she makes only small cookies so only a heart usually goes on them... and if its a big cookie she's done it too, but where the bct was the cookie became really soft there....

I just did a big chocolate chip cookie cake yesterday and I decorated it with BC icing and it turned out just great, not too soft at all. I guess it depends what type of cookie you are putting it on and the consistency of your icing.
