I have started working at a bakery. They want a moose cookie as their signature cookie. (The town has a moose theme) I don't feel they are cost productive at all. It takes me just about 6 hrs to cut out, bake, fondant and RI them. They have this terrible fondant in a big box. Its so sticky that I just can't do anything with it at all. It stretches so bad.
I guess my question is should I not be taking this long to make these?
We're talking about 30 cookies here. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions? Hes paying me pretty good to do these and I don't want him to think I'm intentionally taking so long.

skip the fondant and just use RI - flood it in brown, let it dry overnight, and pipe the details the next day. alot easier than using fondant too!

I've tried everything. Its a buttercream fondant. I got spoiled making my own. I'm not sure what to do. But maybe I'll try a little more ps. Thanks

Well you could always ask him if you could make your own. And you will get quicker as you continue to make them.

Are you cutting them out by hand? If so, can you find a cookie cutter to help take the time off?
