I'm new to CC, so I'm sure this has already been covered, but...
How do you use MMF on NFSC? I've only used icing, but I wanted to branch out Any advice would be great!!
Welcome to CC! This is how I do fondant on cookies:
While your cookies are baking, roll out your fondant and cut using the same cutter that you used for your cookies. Keep the fondant covered. As soon as cookies are out of the oven, place the fondant on the cookies....they are warm so the fondant will melt slightly into the cookie adhering it to the cookie.
Then to add accents, wait for your cookies to cool and then add fondant accents using a little water to attach the fondant.
I tried rolling out the fondant while the cookies were baking and it didn't work for me- I'm just not that coordinated and organized enough.
I've heard that you can bake your cookies, then roll out and cut the MMF, then just pop the cookies (mmf and all) back in the oven for a minute or two- just to warm the fondant so it sticks... I've also heard they can be poped in a microwave for a few seconds, too.
I'm not organized enough for that either. I usually bake one day, mmf the next. I cut out the mmf, dot the cookies with a little squirt bottle of karo syrup, then lay my mmf on. The 3rd day I decorate with RI
So, could you brush them with a simple syrup and then put the MMF on???
I don't see why not. But you don't need much
I roll my MMF while baking too. A lil trick I have learned is that if your cookie spreads a lil bit.I use my mmf roller to push mmf to the edges of the cookie for a more sleeker look
