Has anyone used Satin Ice on cookies? Im wondering how it tastes on them and do you have to use buttercream to get them to stick like the package says to do for cakes? I am using a 4" graduation gown cookie cutter and wondering appx. how far one tub of Satin Ice will go-I'm doing 175 cookies. icon_biggrin.gif

one tub will probably cover that many cookies, a five pounder deffinately will. For that many cookies, this is how i do it. I roll the dough through a pasta machine (setting 4 on mine) then cut the icing with the same cutter as used for the cookie. I would do these ahead of time. Wrap the fondant cut outs in layers of plastic wrap and place in a tupperware container.

Make cookies, and as they come out of the oven and are still warm place the fondant cut out on top of the cookie, it will adhere with the warmth of the cookie.

If your cookies are already baked, then brush the back of the fondant cut out with a little water then place on the cookie.

Thats all that you need. I then use royal icing to decorate the details of the piece.

you can brush the cookies with corn syrup too...and then stick the fondant on...works great!

What is satin ice? Do you make or buy regular fondant to place on top of the cookies. I was thinking about making tiered cake cookies for place cards at my wedding, and also was wondering what would be the best way to decorate them.

Satin Ice is the brand name for a commercial fondant.

Would you wrap each fondant cutout individually or just a bunch together (Im wondering if they stick together) and how long would they stay unrefrigerated in the tupperware container? Or do you refrigerate? Thank You Peg!

Prettycake, your cakes are-well...pretty! icon_biggrin.gif Thanks for the reply-I am going to try it as I think that they look really nice and from judging your cookies-you can make them into a piece of art! I am on the hunt for a pasta machine as I am typing this!

When i place the cut outs in the tubberware container. I lay a piece of plastic wrap on the bottom of the container, lay a single layer of cutouts as many as i can fit, then more plastic wrap, then more cut outs, more plastic and keep going until done.

For an inexpensive pasta machine, check out micheals craft store, they sell one in the clay section that is very reasonable.

Great tip Peg-I found one on Michaels and Joanns website for $24.99 (I was expecting much more)! I am very pleased! Thanks again.

chriscrites, your cookies look amazing and so do your cakes. Do you use the satin ice for all of your stuff?

chriscrites Posted 20 Apr 2006 , 11:20pm

Mylene, I don't think you will find it at a craft store. I bought mine at a cake shop. They sell cake decorating supplies and offer classes.
