I found these St. Patrick's Day sugar cookies.. Was wondering if anyone could give me any pointers on what tip to use to get the coin shape that is on the inside of the black kettle on the cookies??

Just looks like a 2 or 3, flattened with your finger.

Any other suggestions to get a "coin" look without flattening each one out? That seems pretty time consuming... lol... Would like something that still looked like a pot o' gold but easier..

You could get some confetti quins (http://www.fancyflours.com/Quins-Confetti-24-oz-jar/productinfo/5750MSCN1/), pick out the yellow ones, place them in the black kettles, and paint them with gold luster dust mixed with vodka or lemon extract, but I think that would take waaaaaay longer than piping dots and flattening them. icon_wink.gif

New here and a beginner to decorating but...

I would just skip the icing coins and just make a mound of coarse gold/yellow sugar.

It's not time-consuming at alljust pipe a row like you would pipe a border!

You don't even need to flatten them out, but if you choose tojust smash them all at once with your finger dipped in cornstarch, powdered sugar, or wait a few minutes until it slightly crusts and smash.

What Unlimited said. If if takes you more than 30 seconds per cookie to pipe those dots and flatten them you're doing it wrong. icon_smile.gif

Surely, you are jokingthey might be individual fondant coins in your link, but these are obviously piped in rows because it looks like corn on the cob.

Elizabethan Desserts (see original link):"Our signature soft and chewy vanilla sugar cookie with American buttercream". If you go on the original site, you can see that they are piped. It looks like they just hid the "tail" under the next set but if you flatten them after crusting, it wouldn't take as long as the fondant ones. Although, I have to say, the fondant painted gold were awesome looking! icon_smile.gif

I wouldnt call it "obviously piped" but I admit I didnt click on the link.

Both the image above and my link look uber similar, so I stand by suggesting it could be fondant.

If it isnt, ah well, no biggie. At least the OP has more options other than RI icon_smile.gif

It is a biggie. You didn't "suggest" it was fondant, you insulted everyone stating that we're all wrong. Not cool.

Oh please, dont be so serious, I specifically used a icon_razz.gif and a icon_biggrin.gif to emphasise the joke. Wow, grow a sense of humour. (there, THATS me being rude.)
