I put the MMF on the cookie just out of the oven that way it sticks w/o adding anything to the cookie. Just place it on and it sorta melts on.

Thanks, I'm just not happy with the whole glazing process.

I have never tried mm fondant on a cookie but tried RBC and put it on the cookie right out of the oven but it didn't stick.

I have never done this with cookies. How do you get the shape of the mmf to fit the cookie? Doesn't it shrink when in the oven?Maybe this is a silly question, but I would like to know.

You roll and cut the fondant just like you do the cookie; with the same cutter. And then after the cookie comes out of the oven you put it on. I have read that some use cornsyrup on the cookie but that seemed like alot of work. The rolled buttercream was very hard to work with for me mmf is alot easier.

If you roll out and cut the fondant while the cookies are baking, you can place the fondant on the cookie while still warm.

HOWEVER, if something happens or it doesn't fit into your time frame, you can use a bit of extract on the back of the fondant to help it stick to your cookies. I love using it!

Good luck!!!

Does anyone have any pics of their cookies with mmf and royal icing?
My friend Jamie is getting married in August and I told her I would make her wedding cake cookies for favors (160!!) Plus I'd like to find something special to do for the bride and groom...any ideas?

Plus I just want to see how the cookies come out with mmf and royalicon_smile.gif

Check out Toba Garrett's book "Creative Cookies". She has some beautiful ideas for special occasions. They would need to be presented in a pretty box. HTH
