Hi Guys, I am really new to CC and i just love all the ideas I have gotten from this wonderful site. I am making fancy decorated cookies for my sisters 40th birthday in september.They are going to be the take home treats after the dinner. My sister bought a number 40 cookie cutter that should arrive to me very soon. That way I can experiment with it before september and really perfect it. I want to cove the cookie with fondant, how do I stick it on, with buttercream or royal icing? Does it matter. Also I would like to wrap them up really pretty, any ideas would help!!! Any pictures would help too. Thanks everyone, this really is a GREAT SITE!!! Thanks, Dana

use a VERY thin coat of buttercream to stick the fondant on.

Hi Dana8,

I always use piping gel to stick either fondant or rolled buttecream to my cookies. Works great.

As far as the package, I normally just make put them in a "treat" bag with a coordinated ribbon to tie it closed.

You didn't mention what kind of recipe you are using for the cookies but I would highly recommend NFSC (Never fail sugar cookies). This is great for cutout cookies and can be found here in the recipe section.

Good Luck!

I dab a tiny amount of corn syrup on the cookie to stick the fondant to.

I tend to use cookie bags tied with ribbon for decorative purposes.

i topped cookies with mmf right out of the oven and didn't apply anything to the cookie first. i think the mmf just stuck due to the heat.

I use Satin Ice on my cookies. I cut out the fondant, then the cookies. Put the cookies in the oven to bake and as soon as they come out of the oven, I put the fondant on top. It sticks with the heat. That is probably the easiest way (IMO) to cover cookies. Sometimes I use food markers to decorate and sometimes I airbrush them. Of course, you can always use RI.

Have fun!
