Ok, i am making these football cookies for a silent action for my son football team. I used the NFSC and it came out great.

I used simple syrup to keep the fondant on and I will use royal icing for details. I need to finish them up tonight b/c I have a cake due on Saturday and I teach Friday night .

Will they be stale by Sunday or will the simple syrup help keep them moist ?????

How should I store them ?

thanks in advance this is my frist time making this type of cookie

Happy Baking !

I think they will be fine if you package them individually.

They will probably be OK til Sun, but if you are uncomfortable with that, freeze them. If they are individually packaged, just layer them in a container and freeze. If they are not packaged, layer them between wax paper. Put them on the counter, still in container to thaw. This works really well, I freeze them all the time. BTW, I have frozen them for up to three weeks, and they are fine. HTH

Yes, I have frozen many cookies with fondant as the base and ri as the details. Just be sure your ri is completely dry before freezing.

Decorated cookies are actually fine at room temp for approx 7 days. I do recommend putting them in an airtight container layer with waxed paper as well or individual wrapping is fine too. This keeps them safe from the outside elements. Why chance possibly ruining your decorating by condensation etc if it is not necessary. hth icon_smile.gif
