Wich one taste better?
This is going to be my first time making decorated cookies. I want them to taste REALLY good because they are for my son's birthday party and i know decorating them with mmf will be much easier but I don't know if Toba's glaze will be easy too or wich one is yummmier.
I'm making his name and going to decorate it with a bandana patern, they are going to be part of the table centerpiece.

Thanks in advance.

It is just a matter of personal preference.

MMF is thicker and makes a clean surface for the cookie.

The glaze in lighter and almost transparent. It will take longer to dry.

I recently made cookies and did a bit of experimenting. I use Antonia's royal icing, which I liked, but it was taking so long. I needed to wait for each color to dry, and that too even longer. For the project I was doing, I needed it be something I could do quickly. (I used the NFSC recipe from this sight)

I decided to also give the MMF a try. After getting some advice from another CC'er I followed her suggestions, and was very pleased with the results. Work in small batches, making and baking your cookies first. Then while they are baking, roll out and cut your fondant shapes. Set them aside, covered in plastic wrap. I prepared a simple mixture of piping gel, with a little vodka (it's flavorless and dries well).

After your remove the cookies from the oven, lightly paint each cookie with the piping gel. Place MMF on each cookie and let cool. You don't have to rush, and working in batches makes the process go very smoothly. For my cookies I needed to pipe a few details with royal icing to finish the design. Worked out very well, and they tasted great.

I hope that is helpful and you have a wonderful birthday party for your son!
