Dear friends:

Pardon my lack of knowledge of the cookie world; Iâm from the cake side of the fence.
I am cake decorator and a couple of customers have been asking me to make cookies for them.
I would like to start selling designed cookies; Iâve seen amazing designs around here!

My first question is, what type of cookie recipe do you know normally use for this kind of cookies?
Would any recipe do it or is there a generic type o technique that works better for this kind of job?

Thank you in advance for your patience.

Karen's Cookies has wonderful tutorials and recipes too.

this fourm has been the most helpful for me, there are so many tips and trick to beautiful cookies, here's a link to another discussion about uniform rolling I think is very helpful.

Hope you get lots of cookie orders! Andrea
