I'm sure this has been asked before but I couldn't find it anywhere. How do you attach fondant to your cookies? I made some the other day and used a bit of water to attach it to the NFSC. They tasted fine but I felt like they were a bit bland. Do any of you use frosting to attach the fondant?
Thanks for any input!
welcome to cake central!
I use royal icing for my cookies, so I can't answer your fondant question first-hand, but I have read that a lot of people put the fondant on while the cookies are still warm, so the fondant sticks without any other "glue."
hope that helps some!
I like to just put the fondant on when the cookies are still hot, that way it bonds really well. But I seem to recall someone saying they used a wash of thinned jam/preserves to attach it. That would add and extra pop of flavor.
Some use strained Apricot brushed on which gives it a nice taste and helps it stick.
I make up a sugar syrup and when the cookies are cool - i just paint a TINY bit on each cookie -
[b]1 cup water and 1 cup of castor sugar - bring to boil - boil for 1 minute - take of heat - when cold transfere into a sterilized jar - keeps in the fridge for abnout 2 weeks.[/b
]Just pour a little bit into a dish - that way you aren't contaminating the whole lot with little bits of cookie residue.
Then just tip out down the sink what you haven;'t used.
Your Fondant will certainly stay put.
You can add a drop of flavoured oil to the sugar syrup if you wish -
Someone taught me to brush on a thinned corn syrup and then place the fondant. Although apricot preserves sound yummy!
