Hi again! I'm exploring using a marshmallow fondant on my cookies. I have a question, though, for you seasoned decorators. For more detailed designs, like a train, car, etc. (anything with a base plus extra little things on top), how is this done? Do you put on a mmf base then add more cut out mmf for the different colored wheels, windows, stripes, etc.? Or do you put on a mmf base and pipe the different colors with royal? Or third, do you cut out different mmf shapes and put them on the cookie so you just have one layer? Thanks!

I have used all three techniques. I take into account what the design is and how much detail there is. Some of my cookies only have fondant and some use fondant and royal icing. Some have layers and some don't. Can't tell you which is the most time consuming, it all depends on the design. Check out my cookies. HTH
