try rolled buttercream for cookies--cut it out like you cut out the cookie & freeze it while cookies bake then place on hot cookie--can be impressed with lace molds & stuff before freezing

 

another way-- try loosening up the cookie dough with milk or water to piping consistency and pipe some decor onto the cookie before baking-- it spreads a little but it's a cool technique

K8:  I'd like to try the first idea you mentioned -- do you have a good rolled BC recipe you'd be willing to share?  Thanks!

Can you pipe details with RI using the rolled buttercream as a base?

sure you can

 

hmm i've never done it though

 

and the devil is in the details with cake deco

 

and the royal should stick on there --no reason why it shouldn't

 

so i'm giving it a definite maybe icon_biggrin.gif

 

it's easy to test it though & post your results if you want

ADoes anyone ever put fondant on sugar cookies? The rolled buttercream does that hold edible images good and would it ship well :)

I have to ship 100 cookies in the mail and want to know should I go fondant, RI, or rolled buttercream?
