Just wondering if anyone covers their sugar cookies in poured fondant and then decorates?

Never thought of that, but I bet it would taste good! thumbs_up.gif


Lori, I just noticed your in Al. Do you use the Bettercreme frosting? I am looking for the frozen kind??

no i don't use it, I use SugarShack's buttercream icing.. I order the wedding bouquet by the gallon since I use it all of the time. I don't know anything really about bettercreme.

SugarBakerz, I haven't used her BC yet. Does it crust enough so that the cookies can be stacked? thanks

That's a brilliant idea. SugarShack: Does it dry hard enough to stack?

Never thought of this!

Do you outline and then pipe with the melted fondant or dip the cookie in the pan?

OK, I am a little confused. Sorry. But it's still not clear to me whether or not Sugarshack's BC crusts enough to stack cookies. What does the consistency have to be in order to use it to decorate cookies. Thanks

Sharon was saying that the poured fondant firms up enough to stack. I think the buttercream discussion was off the point of the thread???

Thanks Sharon for the advice and thanks to SugarBakerz for asking this question. Now I know!

I use a product called High-gloss white RTU (ready to use) poured fondant. It comes in white and is easy to color with icing color. It dries hard enough to stack your cookies but you are still able to bite them without chipping a tooth icon_biggrin.gif . You can add powdered sugar to it to make it a thicker consistancy if you need to. It is a great compliment to NFSC (recipe found on this site). Best of all, the cookies dry in about 6 hours. I purchase this product at my local bakery supply store. I also use this to decorate my cookies.
