I have to make 300 cookies for a daddy/daughter dance next month. Im thinking of decorating some with MMF because my hand really cramps up with glaze details and it slows me down. Do customers like MMF on sugar cookies? Thanks so much for the advice!

I only decorate my cookies with MMF. I use royal for accents. Everyone loves my cookies and the fondant actually helps them stay fresh a little longer. Check out my cookies. HTH

Oh wow! I never would have guessed these were decorated in MMF! I would have assumed they were glazed. Beautiful cookies and exactly the answer I was looking for. Thanks so much!!

I LOVE the look and taste of MMF on cookies. Everyone loves them as well. I say MMF, but then again that would take a lot of rolling and cutting out the shapes. Is that easier on your hand then glazing? Just a thought. icon_wink.gif

I think that MMF is easier and you get a cleaner, crisper look. I can also add all kinda of accents that you cannot with glaze. I love to use impression mats but I think it just takes a little practice and use what you are comfortable using to decorate. HTH

How do you get MMF to stick to the cookie? I've actually never had any luck even making MMF, but maybe someday it'll come out right!

Just use a cuple of dabs of corn syrup on the cookie and then lay the MMF on top. Smooth the edges with your finger. Easy, easy....HTH

I put the mmf on when the cookie is just out of the oven...loosen the cookies from the baking sheet but leave them on it, lay the fondant on the cookies and let them sit on the baking sheet for a minute or two, then transfer to a cooling grid. The heat will melt the back of the mmf cutout and glue it to the cookie, plus it helps it harden so the cookies can be stacked within an hour...really useful if you're making 300!

Oh wow! That's an incredible tip! Thanks so much for sharing!!

I just used MMF on sugar cookies for the first time this weekend. Awesome. I did exactly what Texas Rose suggested: place the cut out MMF on the cookie, straight out of the oven.

Just wanted to warn you about not touching the edge of the covered cookie though while it's still warm because it can string out like a toasted marshmallow would! icon_biggrin.gif

LOL! I did do that once and that's exactly what happened and I knew that it would happen, so don't even ask me why I touched it. I think cause it was just so smooth looking. But yup, right out of the oven and it melts on and never moves.

ALVARGA...your cookies are amazing!! I didn't know you could even put MMF on the cookies...what a great idea! I may have to start making cookies now! Oh boy...more stuff to buy!

Do they taste as good as the cookies with RI on them?

You can flavor the MMF with vanilla, lemon, orange, chocolate, etc. and roll it thin. The sweetness is there, but it's cookie you really taste.

I just did some using MMF and you can finish and bag it a lot faster than waiting for royal icing. It's my favorite way of decorating them now.
