I am making a small batch of footprint cookies for a baby shower and I would like to monogram them but I don't know what to use. My understanding is that the crisco in the mmf will break down the RI, is that correct? RI is the only icing I have ever piped with, I don't know much about the other kinds. Any advice wiil be greatly appreciated, thank you.
I use RI decorations on MMF, fondant, and butter cream all the time without any problems.
After about 2 days the RI decorations will get soft, but then the cake is gone!!
You could also cut out the monogram from a different color MMF and place it on top of your cookies.
Craxy4Sugar, I am doing cookies for a baptism the end of the month. The cookies will be bagged and ready a good 3 days before the event. I too will be using RI on MMF. Think the monogram should hold up good for that many days? I really don't want to use RI on the whole cookie as there are alot of them to be made
I have a cookie (one of the dracula cookies in my gallery) and it was from last year!!! It's mmf with royal details and I still have one in a bag (as a sample for customers to look at) and the thing is still like the day I made them ...well the day after when the royal was hard lol..it hasn't become soft whatsoever!!!
Mom, yes the cookies will still be great even after a week. I'd be more concerned if you put RI decorations on a bc cake,, but not so much a worry with the fondant. I use MMF too...I love it.
KH, I have cookies that are 6 months old because I made them for practice and don't have the heart to throw them away. They look as great today as they did when I made them.
