Hi Ladies,
I have never done cookies, but Im making about 40 for my sons birthday. I will be going with the 3d cookie cutters from Wilton,

Im trying to find the easiest way to ice them and make them look pretty, I need the icing to crust or dry hard so that I can put them in little plastic baggies for the kids to take home. I was considering rolled BC, would that work? I could just roll it and cut out the shapes and glue them on the cookie, could someone offer some advice?

I used Anonia's Icing for mine in my gallery(I did it for a baby shower(pink). It was perfect!

I've never done rolled buttercream but I have heard it is nice and quick.

The bear turns out so nice, it's my favorite of their stackable cutters!

You could use fondant, as well. Just roll it out and use the same cutter as was used for the cookie. Place the fondant on the still warm cookie and it should stay in place. If you add the fondant later, brush some corn syrup on the cookie to act as glue. Use royal icing or thickend Toba's Glace for adding details.
