Hello all,

I need to make some cookie for next week and I fell in love with these. I have tried ALL DAY to make these ribbon roses out of royal icing and it ain't happening. I have e mailed the lady who made these beautiful cookies but have yet to hear back. I do know however that I can make these ribbon roses out of fondant because I have done those before. My question is this, I would like to make ribbon roses out of fondant, small ones like these, for these cookies. I plan to make them next week, probably thursday night for an auction on saturday the 14th. Will the fondant be so hard that it could chip someone's tooth? Anytime I have leftover fondant pieces I put them in my cabinet and they turn brick hard.

How do you use fondant on a cookie in detail like this, but make sure they stay soft? Should I wrap each cookie individually, or should the whole bouquet be wrapped in one bag?

ANY help is appreciated, thank you!

I use MMF on all my cookies. I find that it stays nice and soft. I would also package the cookies individually, I find that it adds to the charm of the cookie. I always use at least two colors of ribbon to tie off the packaging. Making the cookies on Thursday for Saturday will be just fine. HTH.

Thank you alvarga .. these would be made out of wilton fondant, and not covering the whole cookie .. will they stay soft enough to chew?

I would also use marshmallow fondant instead of Wilton. Wilton does tend to dry out and turn rock hard. Marshmallow fondant will stay softer much longer. Very cute cookies!! Good luck!

Thank you ... I have tried making the MMF before, but it was a huge mess .. never got the hang of it .. I watched the tutorial video about 15 times .. I am just not getting it ..

If the wilton fondant will turn hard with them individually packaged maybe I am better off doing a different bouquet altogether.
