I'm making tiki faces ..since I've alread made a batch w/ royal icing details & was not happy with how they turned out (my piping was not my best) so I figured fondant might be a better way to go. Any suggestions on how to apply the fondant onto the cookie?? Do you put RI on first or something else (piping gel, buttercream etc.)

I just did some cute groom tuxedo's and applied a thin layer of corn syrup on the cookie - which acted as a super glue for the fondant! And it added a nice sweet layer in between the fondant and the cookie!

There are a couple of ways to do this. The corn syrup method has already been mentioned. I have not tried that one.

What I do is cut my fondant out while the cookies are baking so I am ready when they come out. Once baked, I give them two minutes to cool, then top with the rbc. The fondant "melts" to the cookie and you are all set to go. If I don't get one or two adhered in time and they come loose, I just add a touch of royal when I am adding my details and it stays just fine.

This is what I do also. I use MMF and I cut the fondant shapes out in advance, so they will firm up a bit and be easy to pick up. I don't wait two minutes though, just loosen all the cookies from the sheet with a spatula and then put the fondant on right away.

I do just what Texas Rose does, but I don't loosen the cookies until I am all done with the fondant. I like the cookies held in place just in case I need to spread the fondant out a little with my fingers. I also like to smooth down the edges of the fondant for a more glazed look.

Just did my first batch this week and I can totally say that putting the fondant on while the cookies are hot is da' bomb!!

If your cookies are already cool you can just brush water on the back of the fondant and it will stick like glue to the cookie.
