I cut out the cutter myself (first) used the no fail sugar cookie recipe (first) tried the MMF (first) and also Antonia's Royal.
The cookie on the left is MMF. The cookie on the right is royal.
I wanted to compare the effort and the look. I take the cookies to the girls tonight. I could have tried more decorations but I wanted it to look like the jersey they wear.
Great job! They look just like the real shirt.
Do you have a preference now that you've tried both? I'm a MMF addict when it comes to cookies. I have yet to try Antonia's (Helen's) recipe. For me rolling, cutting and placing the icing on the cookie is pretty quick and the finish is perfect every time. I think my hand would die if I tried to squeeze icing onto cookies. Especially since I usually work in batches of sixty cookies.
how do they taste with the MMF...better than royal??? I need to try the mmf...I love the look it gives to the cookies and the drying time........ugh, what a pain it is to wait for royal to dry.
I personally do not like royal, but have heard good things about the Antonia royal. The MMF dries, and stacks, and packages nicely. Not hard like royal. One week later and you can bite into the cookie and it is soft. I roll my MMF thin so it doesn't taste too sweet. I like the taste and so do my customers - and that base keeps growing. I need to start saying no to the cookie orders. I have a full-time job plus an active 5-yr old and hubby. My life is full. But still fun.
Bravo on both shirts. You had great success with your "firsts". The jersey cutter is awesome! Great job. What exactly does MMF taste like? Seems like people either hate it or love it. I've only tried Wilton's fondant at a class so MMF kind of scares me.

KOS~!!!!! Don't be afraid of MMF....Be VERY afraid of Wilton fondant! LOLOL There's no comparison!
Do you just lay the MMF on the cookie? Anything needed to stick it on?
If your cookie has already cooled, you can just use a bit of water on a brush. You can also use corn syrup mixed with a bit of water so it is easy to apply. You can also use royal.
If the cookie is warm, and you are ready, just drop the fondant on the cookie.
Wendy they both look good
I don't care for "regular" royal at all, rock hard but Helen's seems to stay soft underneath the top. I love the rolled chocolate cookies but the cocoa powder makes them dry, I think and her icing adds a good compliment to it.
2 Nieces, Sister, Dad all seem to slightly prefer the MMF. Everybody liked them both, but if pressed they picked the MMF.
I think the MMF is easier with a real cutter, but with the card stock and the exacto knife, the royal might be faster. I made a few other little hearts and when you have a real cutter you can just whip that MMF right out.
