Hi , I am very new to all of this, I just signed up for a cake and cookie decorating class, but my question is can you decorate the premade cookie dough, I bought a container from a fundraiser for a lady at work and to practice my learnings I was wondering if I could decorate the cookie dough or is the consistancy not right. thanks for the help.
You can decorate anything you want, just depends on what you want to do.
You can use any cookie you want. I think the preferable cookie is a sugar cookie or butter cookie. Just as long as the surface is fairly smooth. Have fun!
Usually, store bought sugar cookie dough is a little soft. Depends on what you want to do with it. You can always throw it in the mixer and add a little bit more flour (or flavors if you like) to get a firmer texture.
