I took an order for 2 dozen train cookies. I am going to try the NFSC recipe here, but what icing would be the best for these cookies?

Here is the cutter

Also, what would you charge per cookie, wrapped in a cookie bag w/a bow?

Thanks, appreciate any feedback!

Check out my photos of the halloween cookies - pumpkins. They turned out really cute, and I HATE making cut out cookies - well I USED TO! I used royal icing and fondant to decorate. Rolled buttercream would be great - use it as a cutout and place on the cookie then decorate with either more rolled buttercream or fondant accents - windows, wheels, etc. Good luck!

In your opinions, what is the easiest icing, and cleanest for beginners? I am thinking I am going to ice the whole thing in blue, let dry and then add black wheels, steam stack etc.
