ok I have read some here used rolled buttercream for cookies. I am wondering how exactly to use this. I know with the fondant I was using when the cookies came out of the oven. What about the RBC? Also how long does it take to dry so they can be placed in bags. This is the first time I will be using this. I did make it and it tastes wonderful. TIA

I found it so greasy & hard to work with I never even put it on my cookies...I had already read that it was really difficult trying to cover a cake with it, but for cookies, lots of people were doing it.

I think it takes a day for the greasiness to dry out enough to be able to package...also, there's one recipe here that includes cake flour...I always wanted to try that...I figured it would be less greasy with the flour absorbing some of it.

Please post back about your results...I'm interested to know how it turns out for you.
